We've just had the most amazing weekend ! We had the whole family here Saturday and Sunday. Half of them stayed 'til Monday. There were 9 adults and 5 kids staying in our new house and it was fabulous. All of the adults ( and the toddler ) were in rooms. The 4 bigger kids thought it was great that they got to 'camp' ... in the living room !!


We did spend some time in the outdoors ... just not in a tent ! We went bush walking through the rainforest on Sunday morning. We love bush walking and it was great to be able to do it with the rest of the family. Grandad's knees and Auntie Gina's 'due in three weeks' belly meant that they didn't come on the whole walk ... oh and Uncle Eddie and 20 month CJ neither. They turned around after the boardwalk and grabbed a coffee while the rest of us headed up to the waterfall and back. Grandma did come along. Not only was she able to do the whole walk, she got some great shots. Here's a beauty ...


In other news ... tonight should be Rory's last night working night shift ! Wooooo Hooooo ! Most of you don't even know he was doing night shift. I don't like to post stuff like that on my blog til after the fact. I'm just weird like that. He's been leaving the house between 9 and 9:30, SIX NIGHTS A WEEK, and getting home between 8:00 and 8:30 in the morning since the 19th of April !!! We are all so ready for it to be FINISHED !!! We have made the best of it but my goodness are we ready for 'normal' again !!

I'm pooped. I love visiting and hanging and talking and laughing and just being with family but when it's finished, I'm pooped !! I think tonight, I'm going to go watch some tv and finally get my knitting needles working again !! I haven't knitted since we moved in here ... I'm missing it.

I'll be round to visit everyone soon. I haven't even opened my google reader to see what you all have been up to ... I'm a bit scared at how many unread posts there will be after three days of not checking !! I'm not even going to look until tomorrow ...

What fun to have so much family togetherness, right down to a tent in the living room. That picture is gorgeous!
Hooray for no more nights for Rory!

What a great idea!! I think we'll have to pull the tent out!

First of all- that picture is just incredible!!!
I'm so happy Rory will be done with nights- I hated it when Mark was working nights. I hated being in the house by myself at night.
So glad you had such a nice visit with family- how fun!
