Long weekend

Today the boys and I packed up the picnic basket and headed for Halls Gap for the day
It was a beautiful winters day, the sun shinning, no wind and the boys were behaving PERFECT!!

The boys had a ball running around, playing hide and seek, footy, and playing on the play equipment.

5 boys with mouths full of ice-cream = BLISS for mummy

the high light for the boys was finally seeing a kangaroo...I know I know we are Aussies I should be ashamed of myself :P but they have never seen one in real life before...Jake wanted to ride it lol

4 boys are fast asleep now having a nanna nap...perfect end to a perfect day :o)

Survival Camp

So as we waved goodbye to D, he was off on an adventure that will surely make him realise how lucky he has it...He was off for 3 days where he had to camp out in the mountains (where at night it got below -5 degrees), they weren't allowed to pack clothes, they had to layer up so whatever they had on was it..He had to cook all his own food, there was no running water (which means no showers), and wait for it the best bit by far a long drop TOILET!! I had to giggle when he told me this the look on his face was priceless...
They went on 12kms hikes everyday, and sat around talking and playing games. And really got to know each other in a different way.
So we picked my little (well not so little) adventurer up yesterday at lunch time, and as he stood there, looking extremely tired and very dirty, a big grin came across both our faces when we saw each other. His first words when he got in the car " never again will I go camping" that's my boy haha...our type of camping is in a cabin with electricity, running water and heating/cooling.
So as much as it was nice not to have the little boys stirred up for 3 days, we all really missed our D-man, and he is now sitting in the comfort of his room playing his PS3 with his ipod playing..
