We have been to Alice Springs we had 7 nights as Tara & Brenda flew up from Melbourne for 6 nights, It was great to see familiar faces.
They bought the rain with them we just hung out catching up on all the gossip i have missed over the past 9 months.
Alyssa had her 11th birthday "happy birthday Alyssa"
We went to the Mac Donald's Rangers, out to the old Telegraph station,the Stanley chasm, a bit of shopping.
We saw the Todd river flowing it doesn't do it that often.
Mark stopped to look a bearded dragon, of course he had to try and pick it up to show the kids they were all out of the car looking when the dragon shot off up into the motor of the car, how funny Mark trying to get it out from under the bonnet.
We had a few drinks some more then others, don't worry Tara i wont tell them it was you... We had even more laughs, thanks for coming girls good friends are hard to find.
I really enjoyed seeing my friends i was sad to see them go home.
