I had a great week in Darwin with my sister and her family.

Thomas, Joshua and Mikayla.

We went to Mindil Markets and saw a lovely sunset.

We went on the Thursday evening very relaxing sitting in the sand watching the sun go down.  

Friday was my birthday but because my sister had a market to attend we had a little celebration and then a sunset cruise on the Saturday.

Friday night cake.  Just noticed Mikayla has a thing with her hands.

Mikayla had a special blue raspberry slurpy.  Shh don't tell her it wasn't really raspberry.  She really enjoyed it.

So much so her tongue turned blue.

Our favourite spot on the boat the bean bags at the front of the boat.

Pirate Mikayla.

Pirate Joshua.  Thomas didn't want to have a go at this.

Another beautiful sunset.

Mikayla digging into the snacks.  She did share.

All of us relaxing.

More cake.

After our cruise we went to the pier for some fish and chips.  Across at the waterfront they had opera and fireworks.  Joshua told me he organised the fireworks just for my birthday.

The fireworks topped off the night.

On Sunday we went to the Territory Wildlife Park.  It was great.  They have different areas with different animals and birds.  We saw the bird show and of course there was a big croc.

It was great getting to see my nephews and niece.  I can't wait to go back I am spending Christmas with them.

Hope that it wasn't too much of a photo overload.

I will be back soon with some sewing/swap photos.

Until next time happy stitching.
