Welcome to our blog

We both live at Simpsons Gap in the West Macdonnell National Park, Central Australia, the best spot in the NT! Our blog is for friends and family to see how we are going, and to share in what we have been up to throughout the year. Please leave us a comment, and we hope you enjoy!

Abbey hosts her first morning tea

G'day everyone :) Here are a couple more photos to keep you updated. Abbey hosted her first party today... mum's group at our house. All the babies are getting so much more alert/hair/smiley/heavy and cute!

Abbey holding hands with Jacob.... awwww!

We have a Euro that comes into our backyard regularly for a drink. This photo was taken standing in our back doorway.

And one more for goodluck! P.S. Abbey had her first laugh on Sunday and turned 3 months old on Tuesday, what a milestone!

Abbey is 3 months old!

To appease the extreme and over the top demands from our family, here are more photos of Abbey!! Also a frog for something different (last seen at Simpsons Gap waterhole).

The happy family :)

Here are a few more photos of what we have been up to recently. My sister Stacey and her kids are visiting us and we've been having a pretty fun (at times very chaotic!) time. We visited the reptile centre where Elli got to pat a snake, get up close to a crocodile and hold some lizards. Yesterday was also Abbey's dedication day at church which went really well (based on the fact she didn't cry in front of everyone!) It's been really funny watching Stacey's kids Elliot and Chelsea who both have the funniest little personalities and have been providing us with hours of entertainment. It's been really hot so we've been inside a fair bit but getting out every now and then for the kids to have a swim. Abbey has enjoyed lots of cuddles from her cousin Elliot (who is learning the meaning of the words 'personal space!') and a few 'love taps' from her cousin Chelsea... who is no longer allowed within 1 metre! Anyway, more later.....
