My Family

My dad turned 70 years old last week.......

So we as a family....
Myself and my clan-  4 of us....
Dad and Step mum
My middle sister and her clan - 6 of them
My younger sister and her clan - 6 of them
Headed away for a long weekend.....

My youngest sister lives in Tasmania so it was extra special to have them visit....

We all headed off to stay the long weekend together at a beautiful village not too far from where we live.

Loads of time for hanging with cousins, jumping in puddles, visiting with the horses....

Playing games and roaming ...things that only boys understand.....

Catching up on the fun to be had with cousins the same age that we don't see all that often.....


It was such a great time to chat , eat and hang out at a cool place....

I  wondered many times during the weekend how my dad really felt having all his clan together...and what a clan we are now....

Some of the clan learnt some new skills late into the night....


Others were brave and tackled some adventure....

We all enjoyed the peace and wide open spaces to walk , run, ride and generally hang out....

But all good things must come to an end and we will remember another great family moment  in time.....
I love that my family can come together and share in each others lives....share our wisdom and learn form each other on the journey of being parents, partners and siblings.
