happy birfdy, me leetle bloggy!

While I was away, on the 15th of July, this blog turned 1.
And I forgot.
Am I the horriblest blogger on the face of the earth?

"Happy Birthday, Bloggy!"

A wee bit late,
but better late than never!

~*at long last*~

There is a reason why I haven't created a proper post in so long...

...and this one has been a long time in the making.

Mum, my six sisters and I jumped on a plane and went for a holiday to
 visit our family and friends whom the girls haven't seen for four years!
(phew! that is one long sentence)
We were gone for a month, and we had a lovely time,
although we missed Dad and James a lot.  :)

We stayed with my Mum's sister Renee and her family
while we were away.  They were great...
it can't be easy having eight people stay for a whole month. :P

We stayed with our Grandparents for a few days,
and we had a great time playing with clay,
painting, making beads
 and playing 'Piggy-in-the-middle'. 
Great game, that.

We went to Aussie World,
which was truly marvelous according to Beth.
And it was.

Chloe having a quiet moment.

Katie and Chloe celebrated their 9th and 2nd birthdays
while we were away.

Happy Birthday, girls!

All the kids on Dad's side of the family.
Well, not all.  Most of them.

We went to a family BBQ at our Uncle and Aunts'
house, and were able to catch up with all our
family on Dad's side.  It was great fun!
They have the most awesome flying-fox.

Chloe discovered at Grandma's house that she enjoys dress-ups. 
Particularly necklaces and feather boas.

We went swimming... in winter.
We definitely have acclimatized to Tasmanian weather,
to actually go swimming
Everyone thought we were mad.

Most of Mum's family.  There's a few of us!?

And we had another BBQ with Mum's family at Aunty Nae
and Uncle Barry's house.  I couldn't believe how much the
kids had grown!  Oh, we had a lovely time.

And that is all I'm going to say,
because it is really hard creating a post that makes
sense when you do it randomly over several weeks. 
...did it make sense?
