We got there Friday morning and Jodie and I took the kids for a swim in the pool while the boys got started on setting up camp. Only prob is it was freezing.. of course being Easter and a camping trip planned it had been overcast for a few days. There was no way I was getting in..lol But the kids had a paddle in the shallower bits.. Nutters!
We then went and spent a living fortune on some seafood. My goodness they hike the price up for Easter! But we had a lovely lunch and plenty to cook for dinner..lol.
I was lucky enough that Debbie from the Boxx..came through from Brissie and stopped in and saw us with Ash and the kids on Friday Arvo... It was fantastic to see her again.
We absolutely cacked ourselves when Dad set his tent up.. He had brought himself a u beaut stretcher.. only problem was.. it didn't fit into the bed properly..pmsl.. Couldn't help myself taking this pic while he had an afternoon nap!!
Note both his head and feet are sticking out the main tent..lol.. Luckily the fly covered him for the rain..pmsl
On Saturday Mick, Greg, Jodes and the Boys went off to the beach.. again.. it was too cold so they didn't last long.. Meantime I took Dad to the Doctor's as he wasn't feeling real well.. We then all went off to the local shopping centre.. where the boys were very excited to see the Easter Bunny handing out Eggs..lol..
On Easter Sunday at about 6 am, I woke to see 3 little boys standing at the the tent door trying to see what the Easter Bunny had left ..lol.. They were under strict instructions that they weren't allowed out until everyone woke up.. Jack and Kyle are not as early risers as our ratbags so Jodie woke them up.. lol.. she felt sorry for my boys looking longingly out the tent. pmsl
The boys then checked out the eggs and gifts the Easter Bunny had left them. Our boys got a Dinosaur plastic mug with an Easter egg in it .. plus some little eggs. Then they went on an egg hunt to find all the little eggs the Bunny had dropped.. they were very impressed with their haul.
Gil, Annette and the kids came out later and despite the rain we had a lovely day chatting, eating and a few wines...lol. Luckily it dried up that afternoon so we could all go to the Causeway fishing again. No luck with the fish this time but it was a lovely afternoon.. I had great fun taking photos and playing with my camera.
Tuesday the boys went bowling for Michael G's Birthday and had an absolute ball.. of course Connor has now put in his order for a Bowling party for his birthday. Dad spent the morning with Annette, Gil, Elaine and Mick. He seemed to be feeling better than he had in ages.. then of course I already updated you on his trip to hospital on Wednesday. and the following few days..
