The love supreme

Whats been happening around here?

We have had an amazing couple of weeks....
Its been incredibly busy...
The house has been full....
We've laughed lots and often....
We've soaked up all the goodness that spending time with good friends brings.....
We've eaten too much and too often....
We've taken lots of drives....and seen lots of sights....

So here is a little snap shot of the last ten days...spent with our dearest Qld mates....the Stallans...

Bella celebrated her birthday....

Briony and Kate were thrilled to see each other again.
This visit they had a little more freedom....now that Briony has her licence...they were able to head off on little outings all of their own.....

Meg celebrated a birthday.....

Briony and Kate baked her a cake..... it was delicious! ...and decorated beautifully too...lol

The kids all got to hang out together....


The roadsides are covered in flowers at this time of the year......and were perfect for photo opportunities...




We went on lots of drives.....covering most of the Riverland... showing off our beautiful countryside...

Here we are at Banrock Station on the board walk......we did a little wine tasting after the walk....and brought home a few bottles of our favorites.


We spent lots of time with the girls..... who were VERY spoilt by Ron, Donna and Kate.....with lots of lovely new clothes and gifts....


We also shared our exciting news of Brent and Alex's engagement..... Donna took these beautiful photos to remember the occasion....



We put the boat in..... and travelled up the river....through lock 3 ....to Overland Corner hotel for lunch....
The overland corner hotel oozes character and charm....

This was the view as the lock gate opened....

This is the Overland Corner Hotel....its just gorgeous....


The Publican was happy to oblige and take a photo for us.... notice we are all rugged up.....it was a lovely day but the trio in the boat was a little on the chilly side....

On Thursday we headed to Burra and met up with Andrew, Petrina, Jack and Jorja....  then on towards Adelaide for the night....
We stopped at Martindale Hall in Mintaro..... and toured this amazing old home.....



Then before we knew it... it was time to head to the airport.....and hug them all goodbye....
Thankfully we have so many warm memories....and lovely photos of our time together....
