So...Easter in the bushveld

So before #Bang arrived on the scene we decided a trip away over the Easter long weekend with some friends and family might be a good idea, thinking we'd have an approximately 6 week old baby by then...well it turned out he was only 3 weeks old but by the time you get to the 3rd I guess they have no option but to fit in (I would have rather flung myself out of a moving vehicle than go "holidaying" when Bear was a newborn) so off we went in our new family bus, new family member in tow...
and guess what...
the bus is fabulous, I can't wait for more family holidays...
it all worked out just fine with regards to the newborn, he was a star...
wish the same could be said for the firstborn...
hello week long tummy bug and lethargic, miserable, sick child...sigh...
but still we had a good time overall!

On our first full day all the boys went for a ride and thoroughly enjoyed themselves

While the boys were out in the dust and the dirt the girls decided to don their swim wear and take it easy by the poolside.
The water was cold but still lots of fun
And those that were to young (and old) just enjoyed watching the frolicking in the water

Back in the rooms Evie proudly showed off the chain she made from my knitting markers

And lets not forget the highlight of the trip...the Easter egg hunt!! (I think this was number 4 of more hunts than I can remember lol)

Bear looking rather ill at the sight of his stash (mainly because he was ill :( )

At least someone enjoyed the prospect of candy and chocolate!
A very rare sight...a sleeping family...some tiredness induced, some a result of sickness and some self inflicted!
More sleeping
Sleeping princess, scabby knees and all

Sleeping under the table 

All in all I've never seen so much sleeping!

Unfortunately it wasn't nice having a sick child on holiday, but it was still a beautiful location and it was nice to get out of the big smoke for a few days!  Hopefully we'll get a chance to go back one day and fully enjoy it!
