Little Brother Visits
and so does Mum and Dad
and a cousin!

A couple of weeks back, I was very
excited to get a visit from my 'little' brother!
All the way from Brisbane!
He had never visited us here in the Territory
and he was only here for 2 nights, so we tried
to make the most of the time we had.

We did some sight seeing out at Katherine Gorge,
a selfie on the Katherine River Railway Bridge,
Youth group on Friday night,
Markets and coffee on Saturday,
Teen youth group on Saturday avo
and lots of fun family time playing pool,
telling jokes and reminiscing.

And that's Jer up there doing the YMCA chant

Pretty trippy light play??

I cherish any time I get to spend with my siblings
and mum and dad, as we're so far from anywhere.
It was great to have that special time.

Then, right after Jer's visit,
we were again blessed to have
my parents and niece
visit for a week.

We tried, to no avail, to let mum and dad rest
and not do too much, but alas. They won't sit still!
Grandpa won many rounds
of pool and I think Grandma even
did too! We did ALL the op shops (without Grandpa)
and enjoyed family time. Grandpa worked with Dave
some and they got some projects
around the house done too.
We were even able to have a baby
shower for Abbi
while they were here.

The girls really enjoyed having
their cousin to stay up late
and chat with, sitting out on the
tray of the ute staring up at
the stars ✩ and listening to the
neighbourhood sounds. Hmm.
Sorry, India, that we couldn't go camping.
Maybe next time. ⛺
