The last time we were all together in the same place was my wedding, and there have been 2 extra monkeys added since then, Kahurangi and my nephew Taj.
Of course what better opportunity that to whip out the flash Canon IOS camera and take a few snaps, it helps that my brother George has the same camera and is a bit more savvy with all the settings than I am (what do you mean you can change it from 'auto'?)
|L-R: George, Matt, Mum, Dad, Cynthia & Me|
|Nanny & Grandad with all their grandkids|
|Next generation of cuzzies!|
Now of course the family is spread all over and my boy won't have those experiences of whanau being just round the corner. All getting together at the same time is rare, but you know what? It was beautiful seeing all the kids together, this next generation of 'cuzzies', and how they just fit.
I guess it's genetics, or just Whanau=Family=Love.
