Last week hubs and I had the pleasure of a one week holiday in Darwin. It was fabulous to get away and have a mini break and enjoy being "just us" again. Not only was the weather wonderful, low 30's everyday but we saw some amazing sites as well. We drove to Litchfield national park one day, went to the Mindil beach markets twice, went to the Crocosaurus Cove, walked around Darwin CBD and even caught up with hubs uncle and aunt that we have seen in over 8 years plus much more.

Hubs at Florence Falls
Holding a baby crocodile with hubs (so weird as it was very soft underneath but extremely tough and rough on the top...) The little thing kept on growling the entire time too (not that I blame it, being passed around from pillar to post!)
We stayed in a lovely 3 bedroom apartment in the centre of Darwin that was easy to walk to many places. Not to mention it was huge and big enough for us and our whole crew to stay in it. Potential family holiday destination for the future maybe?
One night while we were at the apartment, the fire alarm went off. Apparently, someone set it off cooking their dinner. I must admit, while I'm glad no one was injuries or any damaged was done, I was disappointed to see a plain vehicle turn up and disarm the fire alarm. (I know it was an unmarked vehicle as I was on the balcony with my camera ready to take photos!) I was hoping for a fire truck with sirens and lights. It would have made a great scrapbook page...
This is hubs favourite photo from the trip... Being able to do 130km on the Stuart Highway to Litchfield.
I thoroughly enjoyed out getaway to Darwin and am looking forward to my next trip away later this month (Stampin' Up! convention in Canberra.)
My crew were most excited we were home (maybe because we brought them gifts...) but when we drove into our street, the younger 3 were outside jumping up and down on the concrete as if they were on a trampoline. It was very cute and extremely loud but most of all, a blessing to see how excited they were to see us.
Last pic I promise, a darling note Miss N wrote for us:
