I do like to catch up with my siblings when I’m back – not only cos I kinda miss them (yeah, ok, a little tiny bit – don’t tell them, eh?) but I really like seeing their almost football team sized troup of children.
Ella and Henry love seeing their cousins too. They don’t see each other that often as they don’t live close so it’s a treat when they do get together.
We spent a bit of time at each of my sister’s houses, catching up, having fun and letting the kids play and go nuts.
My youngest sister has 2 kids and the middle sister has 5, including almost 1 year old twin boys. Her life is a crazy ride, thats for sure.
It’s crazy to see how big all my nieces and nephews are getting – I remember life so clearly when Ella was the only grandchild – now my parents have 9 grandchildren. Madness.
We all got together and walked up to the park too – which was fun (and less stressful for my parents to accommodate everyone!)
The next time I catch up with them all like this will be next summer, as I’m planning to get Ella and Henry over here in Perth for Christmas and New Year. Can’t imagine how much bigger they’ll all be!!
Next up: The woods. It’s traditional that we go there and it’s possibly my favourite place in the world.
