yup made it home in one piece.

Still procrastinating but felt the urge to blog and thought I’d do that first THEN work so here it is.

We flew this time. We were VERY early at the airport and then the flight was delayed a further 15minutes so we were there for quite some time but the kids were pretty good on the whole. They all were good on the plane – except Corey when we were landing but I suspect that was a very overtired issue combined with ears etc. NONE of them even LOOKED like having a sleep!

I’d told the kids that only Granma OR Gramps would pick us up as otherwise they would need to bring two cars….and yet I really wasn’t the least surprised when I heard, then saw Granma and Gramps waiting for us. Kids got to bed around midnight that night (the rest of us not far behind)!

Mum and Dad had to work while we were there but Mum went in a bit later than usual so she could go with Dad and leave her car for me which was ace! It is a really nippy little Ford Focus and I loved it once I got used to it!

We went to the show and we hung about a lot at Sues and at Mum & Dad’s place as well as a little bit of shopping – nothing too much lol! But we had a great time. Sue might be ‘over’ the show but I still loved it the kids had a ball even though Brett was a little off colour (enough to sit in the pram and be content to be pushed around for a while). Corey LOVED the animals and Owen and Brett, Mum and I went on the Ferris Wheel just before we left – the fire works went off just as were stopped right at the top so we had the BEST view!

But whilst I loved the show and so did the kids, the highlight was probably just a pot luck dinner at Mum and Dad’s with Sue and her crowd, my lil Brother Steve and his fiancé and little Emma, and my lot – all together it makes quite a lot of monkeys (Mum and Dad have 8 grandkids now with the addition of little Emma – who may not biologically be Steve’s but she calls him Daddy and he loves her like his own)

So I thought I’d share a pic of all the kids – We put them all in Dad’s pride and joy his BMW convertible and took some photos…actually Sue took some photos…

Gramp's Monkeys

but it was just a little easier to fit them in this car….
