Just Us Again

We are all exhausted tonight, but happily so. Our precious family has gone home, and we already miss them! The children all had wonderful fun together, as did the grown ups. :)

Here are some highlights......

Toasting marshmallows

Listening to Aunty Wendy read by the camp fire

William playing soccer (with no nappy on!) with Uncle Phil :)

Games for the little ones

And the big ones!! This was a type of celebrity guessing game.. and involved LOTS of laughing!

For some reason there have been loads of King Parrots visiting this week -
at the highest count there were 14 at once in our garden! They are beautiful!

I really enjoyed cooking for everyone.... muffins and homemade bread.....

..... steak pie, and chicken and vegetable pie.

My sweet bubby

Saraya and Tom and Sam, waiting for everyone to come to table for tea

There were puppet shows galore!! Hand puppets.....

...and funny finger puppets!! We were constantly being summoned to be the audience for these shows!

And because the rain cleared today (yay!) we went up to the water park for some fun. William enjoyed the home-grown watermelon....

... and I saved some seeds for planting. :)

I took this photo at the water park today. Look at that line of height - 1, 2, 3.
3 years between each of them. :) I love this photo!

Stuart and I sent Tom and Sam on the special wave boards as early birthday gifts. FUN!!!

Thanks so much for coming all the way to spend a few days with us, guys! It was really precious time with you all. :) Nice fellowshipping in the kitchen with you Wendy. :) You bless me!

I forgot to ask - can I have your bread recipe? I´ve been trying to find one that works for us.
