Today we are doing double duty linking up with the A-Z Challenge and with Melinda for the Saturday Snapshots.
Yesterday the tour stopped in the heart of the outback. Click here if you missed that post. Today we see some of my family and friends.
When we visit Australia we usually go for about a month as there is always so many of my childhood friends and family that we want to see. We only make it to Australia every 5 or 6 years and this is normally the only time I get to see them so its important to see as many of them every time we visit. We don't get to spend a lot of time with everyone but its always great to catch up.
On our last trip to Australia in 2013 we attended my baby sister Shellie's wedding. This was the first time that most of my cousins, aunts and uncles had been together in close to 20 years as we live in several different states. It was great that we could be part of this celebration and was a good way to catch up with everyone in one place.
Me with my Aunty Joy and Uncle George. They live close to my sister so I was able to spend a little extra time with them on our last visit.
If you live away from your family how often do you get to go home to visit family and how far do you have to travel to get there? What did you blog about today?
