Jive Talking

Part 8

Well our time in Alice Springs is just about over but what a wonderful time it's been!! It's just like I remember but just a bit different! Well when we first got there (unpacked all the bits and pieces first) we automatically went and played with all the kiddies out and about the place! For the next couple of days it was relaxing days but on Thursday I think it was, we went to the reptile centre (I went there before) it was such a cool experience (again hahaha) except this time I got to hold a very large blue tongue lizard and I also got to have a bearded dragon on my back and I also got to hold a quite big olive python!!! (Not at the same time of course!!) at one point cause I moved a bit to much it started constricting around my leg!!! I got to see my main man terry (saltwater croc) I don't think he was so happy to see me because his mouth was wide open when we saw him!!! The gecko cave was new and quite interesting. Well on Friday it was a good day because we got to catch up with our metaphorical Aunty, uncle and cousins, the Howard's (Uncle Kerry, Aunty Linda, Levi, Rachel, Joshua Isaac and Priscilla) it was really good to catch up with them all and have a great time seeing each other again! I was so thankful to Joshua because he offered to fix my iPod screen...For Free!!!!! I honestly can't thank him enough! Well what nearly topped seeing all our 'cousins' and Aunty and Uncle was a absolutely DELICIOUS BBQ dinner which was Sooooo Gooood! Well Saturday came and this day was especially a special day because I was in and participating in Alice Springs biggest parade...The Henley on Todd I was part of the Royal Flying Doctors float and my job was handing out lollies to all the kids. It was really special when I threw a lollie to a kid and there face just brightens up and just sitting there and smiling and saying thank you really made me smile! Especially when I saw a disabled child I automatically went up to them and handed them a lollie it just made me so happy just to see them smile :D it was a really special day! Well we ended up getting babysat by Rachel (Howard, not Moyle hahahaha) while the parentals went out for dinner! Later on in the evening and all the little kids where in bed we stayed up and watched Australia's got talent!! If anyone didn't see it all of you must look up Australia's got Talent Tommy Franklin (on YouTube) it's such an amazing act!!! Well today we had church which was different to Basso but I liked it quite a bit. Turns out Isaac was on sound and he said I could stay there and he showed me how all of the sound worked and boy it was confusing but I sorta got it....Sorta! Well after church we said our goodbyes to the Howard's and we just went to the markets which smelt good but unfortunately which dad said 'No Food For You' which was disappointing but oh well. Well tomorrow we will be leaving for Uluru only a short drive but oh well plenty of time to climb the rock 'hopefully'! And the good news is hopefully we will be able to see Aunty Ruth, Uncle Rocket, Rachel, Sarah and Samuel again at Christmas!!!! Oh well until next time :)
