: our weekend :

last weekend we headed up to a big family reunion on my mother's side. though it was a cool, wet weekend we all enjoyed the 2 days together catching up with family and cousins we hadn't seen for a while, staying altogether in a conference centre in the mountains, and having fun with different activities and games. 

there were times to chat 

little boys to cuddle and play with

flowers to brighten up the tables

discussions with the men

many yummy meals mostly all prepared by our wonderful cousin caitlin, 
her husband steve, and my aunty wendy and uncle mark

an abseiling trip for some of the group - us others watched in 
fear as they literally threw themselves backwards off a cliff! ;)

cute mossy rocks and twigs

many happy smiles and grins 

and a massive group photo of all 43 of us.
we're so thankful to the Lord for these special family times!

we also enjoyed a visit with friends who lived nearby afterwards, 
and it was lovely to catch up with them all! 

: how did you spend your weekend? :
