Camping Rocks!

We had a ball in Swan Hill!  5 nights was the most we have spent in our camp as yet, but also our best holiday yet. The weather was beautiful – mid to high twenties every day and it only rained once – the day before we left! Luckily it fined up in the morning and we were able to take a dry tent home.  We spent most of the time lounging at the BIG4 Swan Hill Caravan park and can’t say enough good things about them really.  They let us pack up a little late with no problems so we could bring the tent home dry. The family bathrooms were a true sanity saver with separate bath, shower and loo. The jumping pillow and swimming pool kept the kids busy for hours and the activities were all great too.  And friendly campers!  Wow!! We had help to set up the tent, the loan (which later turned into a gift as they left before us and left it for us to keep) of an extension lead when mine wasn’t long enough, more help to pull the tent down again when we were leaving, not to mention people letting the boys join in their footy game etc while I was cooking dinner!

Owen had to wash his own dishes as part of his cub scout ‘camp out’ badge  but he did ALL the dishes the whole week without complaint!

We got to spend a day with the fabulous Deb O at the Swan Hill Pioneer Settlement which the kids loved especially the tractors!  Easter Bunny came in the tent which was very exciting and Aunty Sue’s ‘come find me’ talking Easter Eggs kept them entertained for hours on end!

And the go kart races….poor Brett couldn’t get over the hill and when I went to help Corey beat me and pushed him over!  Later in the week I hired two (one with 1 seat and one with 2 seats) for an hour and they had a ball – and after a couple of attempts Brett got over the hill just fine on his own!

and now just a few pics for you….
