Weekend Wrap up.

It was Wharfest weekend in Port Augusta this weekend. On Saturday the show rides, show bags and variety stalls all set up along our local Foreshore. Steve and I took Tom, Amelia, Christopher and Joseph down there just before lunchtime. 

We walked along the wharf down to the show rides first (the children's main attraction). Joseph was a bit overwhelmed by all the people and the loud noises coming from all the rides but still decided to go on the teacup merry go round. Tom, Amelia and Christopher all went together on the Hurricane. \

Tom and Amelia also went on the Kamikaze. 

Christopher and Joseph went in the fun house. (sorry, I cannot find a video of this one). 

Today was the 130th Anniversary since the laying of the foundation stone for our original parish church. Our Bishop, Bishop O'Kelly came to say mass and we had a lunch after. 

We also had the blessing of our new St. Joseph statue. Our Joseph was one of the people to unveil the statue. It was a great celebration and we all had a lot of fun. 

Daniel is back safely from WYD, He really enjoyed his time away. We also welcomed back our Parish Priest this weekend from WYD. 

It is two weeks since Madeline and Sam left for Adelaide. We notice they are gone but we are enjoying not being so busy and having quieter days. 


Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes

Please pray for a cure for Type One Diabetes
Our sons Tom and Christopher and our daughter Amelia are type one diabetics. We pray everyday for a cure. We do not want one by illicit means though so don't support any organisation that contributes to Embryonic Stem Cell Research. Click on the photo of Tom and Christopher to read about why I am against using Embryonic Stem cells for a cure.
