More photos!

In no particular order because I haven't organised the 50 million photos from the 100's of different devices they have been taken on, so mostly these are from my phone, but then there's the kids phones x 2, the ipods x3, the small camera, the BIG dad camera and the ipad and I still can't find a photo of Edith Falls! However I did find our partners in crime, yes we are not the only mad ones out there! We had 7 families with 15 kids and 3 dogs set off together, then we broke up into 3 groups depending on how much time we had and what we wanted to see. Some had 5 weeks and others headed to Broome and then we caught up to some of them again on the way back at William creek on the Oodnadatta track.
Lewis trying to figure out whether it will eat him, luck this ones fiberglass!

This one wasn't! A small freshie so they said but there was no way I was swimming in there!
Robin falls we stumbled across by chance, it was beautiful just a short walk up a cool creek to a secluded pool and waterfall.
We also had a birthday while we were away, Hay turned 12.
There was also time for a bit of craft, I finished this beanie for Tulley
 and lots of felt applique too, this is all the trimmings!
A spot of shopping at Dragonfly fabrics, the only patchwork shop in the NT.
something different, I have them lined up to make some new cushions for our family room and the pink butterflies a cushion for Tulley's bed when I paint her room.....soon. And the story continues.....

It's a bloody long way to Darwin, yes that's why I have been missing for a month. Put our family in the basket labeled nutters and otherwise loopy people because yes we decided to drive to Darwin with a baby, 3 yr old and three bigger ones just for fun! Well it was fun, lots of it, and parts were quite amazing, awe inspiring and by driving you really get the picture about just how BIG this country is. So now I will bombard you with photos and bore you to tears and whinge about how warm it is up there and how we all want to go back right now!!!! OK I'll try not too but it was soooo warm it was lovely. We saw many amazing places Devil's Marbles was one of my favourites.
Litchfield, Kakadu, all just as spectacular as the brochures say, Darwin is a lovely place, very easy to get around. We enjoyed Katherine, Edith falls is a beautiful place to swim and Katherine Gorge is spectacular, even with the crocodiles, freshwater only please!

 A night at the Daly Waters pub has to go on the list for entertainment! Batchelor is the prettiest town, fish feeding in Darwin was fun, the list will go on but for the moment that's all I have time for , the washing must go on and there's all the unpacking!!!!!
Just one last photo to remind myself just how warm it was!
