Camping Yet Again!

         So the last two weeks the kids have been on holiday with no school, and so has Mick :)  So we decided it was time for another family fun camping trip up to our favourite little spot.  This time though we were super cool and clever because we brought along a badminton set to put up right next to our campsite.  It ended up being the hit of the trip as the kids and adults couldn't get enough!  It was the perfect game for all of us to be able to play together, for the adults all the way to the smallest as there are no hard heavy balls involved and it is fairly easy and simple.

Carsen and Lana just wanted to play in the tent.

Their other favourite part of camping is the yummy food. 

Es relaxin'

We also brought a huge ball... that's always fun too.

      Where we were camping was only a short distance away from some of the most gorgeous beaches. So during the day we packed up our beach stuff and headed over to the beach for a swim.

             All in all it was a good but exhausting trip for Mick and I... The kids whined a LOT... So I think we will take a bit of a break before we take our next trip!


  1. Good grief look at those beaches!!! Wow. Lana's hair is suuuuper long! Looks like a fun fun fun trip. I miss the crap out of going camping. :)

    1. I know Paige! Come and camp with us!!! Lana's hair was even longer than that! but we had it trimmed a little...

  2. Camping in Australia looks absolutely MARVY! Especially with those cute-as-bug little girls and the impressive cook!

  3. ooohh....I wish I was on those beaches with you!!! How fun!

  4. Uh, yeah.... camping on the Sunshine Coast is VERY different from camping on the Oregon coast! Remember our last camping trip on the Oregon coast? We were in the yurts and a "tsunami" came? I was just pregnant with Bennett, it was about 3 years ago. We sat around in mom and dad's yurt late one night talking about where we would be in five years. I don't remember exactly what you said, BUT you definitely did NOT say that you would be married to a HOT Aussie and living in there! HAHAHAHA!!! Let's face it, that is just pretty much awesome!

    1. Oh my gosh Corinne! What an awesome memory. I loved that camping trip and for some reason I will just never forget it! I loved it when we all sat around that night... And you are right. I absolutly NEVER EVER would have guessed that this is where I would be. It is amazing to me...

  5. wish I could come with you next time... looks like you all had a blast.. Es relaxing in the chair made me laugh

  6. best pictures ever... wish I was with you.. Es looks like she was really relaxed in that chair...
