We celebrated Lucy's 5th birthday in Winton - QLD. I decorated the van with balloons and streamers to make it extra special. Lucy had a great day!!

Lucy's rainbow cake. I knew we would be on the road and travelling for Lucy's birthday and I couldn't stand the thought of her missing out on a cake. So I planned ahead and while we were in Katherine I used an oven there to bake it, then iced it and turned our engel fridge into a freezer so the cake would last. Then I just pulled it out on the day and decorated it!!

Here's the lovely House Family (minus Nathaniel). They are the Mobile Mission Maintenance managers for the NT. They made us feel so welcome in Darwin and really looked after us. The girls and us have loved our time with them and our time in Darwin. Again it's hard to say good bye but it has to come to an end and it's time to move on. We leave now and drive to Katherine.
Yay!! We got to go to Litchfield. We'd heard so many wonderful things about this place and were really looking forward to seeing it. Some people say you either like Kakadu or Litchfield. We found them totally different and would say you couldn't compare them. We loved them both, for different reasons. We liked Litchfield for the beautiful waterfalls and swimming places. It was also so green and lush with rainforest areas spotted throughout. Gorgeous.

The girls are into it straight away! The waves have started and they enjoy floating about on these tubes. The also catch some waves with the bodyboards they have there. It was a huge afternoon....I haven't seen them so exhausted!! But they had fun while they were there. Chris and I kept feeling sea sick when we went out into the waves!

After 2 weeks of non stop catching up with friends and family, it's back to just us. We had such a great time. We are exhausted, but happy for every moment we could spend with people we love! We are back in Darwin continuing on work with Mobile Mission Maintenance.
