Happy Easter! I think...
We love Easter, not only do you get chocolate eggs (we are Cadbury snobs!) but its a long weekend which is traditionally a camping weekend for us.
This Easter long weekend, we packed up with our mates Darren and Melinda, and their kids Daniel (7) and Chelsea (3) PLUS the dogs to our weekender at Glen Alice, about an hour away from Mudgee.
|At the meeting point, ready to head off!|
We turned up after lunch, unpacked and settled in for a nice relaxing weekend. For the first few days, all went well. Endless cups of tea, and the kids happy to use the iPad or do craft to amuse themselves. Or watch TV - the most popular activity for my 13 year old son who seems to be allergic to the sun.
|Plenty of water in the dams for the cattle including all the baby calves!|
These are very much house dogs normally. It was freezing at night so I was guilted into letting them come and sleep in the shed, especially the old one. At around 4am every morning for the entire holidays, Bella would come up to the bed and whimper. Hubby had the job of taking them out, stoke the fire and then get back into the warm bed. Until around 5am when the same thing would happen. Then 6am. You get the drift. It drove me crazy. Where was the lazy sleeping in I was expecting?!
|Bethany is trying to catch up on a little sleep after being woken up by the dogs.|
Craig and Darren built us a new front verandah, very nice work boys! with the addition of some patio furniture, this is now a lovely place to enjoy the view.
|Cup of tea tea time, Darren!|
|Bethany is a trooper! But she was feeling it the next day.|
|Daniel ended up with a black eye and an adventure to remember.|
Top off a bad day with a flowing over porta potty, and we were glad to go to bed that night!
The next day we put the kids (including the big kid Darren!) in the trailer and went for a run around the property before heading off. A hamburger stop, then straight home, yay!
I love getting home after a weekend away as much as I love heading off. Thanks to our long time friends for a great weekend away, with plenty of memories we will laugh about, maybe not now, but in time... Did you have any mishaps this Easter weekend?
