Heaven on Earth!

OMG! What a wonderful place Fiji is! We will definately be going back, and taking the kids this time. Contrary to Bunny's opinion, (LOL) I haven't been on holidays in Fiji all this time...unfortunatley, I'm just a slacker!

Here are some photos from the trip....

Yes, I had seen a little sun that day!
No lobster comments please! LOL

If you have ver heard the saying "I'm on Fiji time" it couldn't be truer!! They are so layed back and definately NOT in a hurry! LOL But the people are so friendly and welcoming, I can't wait to go back there with the kids!

Camping is so much fun!!!

Well, we arrived home from our camping trip yesterday afternoon, dripping wet I might add!! As it turns out, it wasn't the critters I need to look out for, it was the weather! Rained steadily the first night, but everything managed to stay dry, but then poured all morning, 7 of us huddled under our 3m x 3m gazebo with our camp kitchen set up was quite cozy!! Eventually it stopped raining, and the kids went of to play. The wind also decided to make an appearance, so there was dust and leaves and smoke going everywhere!! We did get to toast our marshmallows on the fire, which the kids thought was fantastic, (poor deprived children! LOL)
After that it rained a little on and off but nothing too bad until Monday, pack up day. The day started out beautifully, so we took our time packing up, then the big black clouds rolled in. We managed to get everything packed up except the tent, and that is when the skies opened!! The kids all stayed dry cause we left gazebo up for them to sit under, but DH, DD1 and I got DRENCHED!! And then, wouldn't you know it, almost as soon as we had it in the car, it stopped and the sun came out!!! ARRRGGGHHHH!!
We went on a 6km bush walk on Sunday, and let me just say, my legs are now reliving every step. LOL

It's good to be home, but now I have the dreaded unpack and wash EVERYTHING. With a campfire, it all smells like smoke, so it all has to get washed whether it was actually worn or not!! FUN, FUN, FUN!!! UGH
Here are a few pics we took on our camping trip....

The veiw from half way up the mountain walking track

Wildflowers along the way

The campfire, obviously LOL

A visitor we had, look closely and you can see the joey in it's pouch

The five kids after the walk, don't they look buggered??? LOL

It was a great weekend, but it's always good to get home.
