For Mum...

Mum - as promised - here are some of the long awaited Easter Pics - sorry it has taken soooo long! Warning to everyone else....heaps of pics in this post!

Firstly - some pics of Easter was all kind of fun cause it was the first year that Tori really understood that something fun was happening. She found her stash fairly quickly and it took her a whole of about 2 seconds to figure out what to do with the eggs! The expressions on her face were priceless.

Secondly, for those of you that don't know, we do a kind of annual Easter camping trip with my family. This year we headed out the week after Easter and had a pretty good time, the weather was good and Ray and Moi enjoyed the new/old van. Tori was pretty sick for some of the trip - but by the end of it - she was right into it! Now, I took over 500 photos of the Easter you will only see some of my very favs here today...but for anyone out there who knows do I do a slide show thingy? I think it would be a heap easier than downloading a ton of pics????? HEEEELLLLLPPPPP please!

Pic 1 - The veiw we woke up to every morning .... oh how I would love to wake up to that every day of my life. (PS; This pic was taken minutes before a dust storm, hence the hazy look to the pic!)

Pic 2 - What is camping without a campfire...(very well contained I promise)...couldn't choose which fire pic to upload, so I kind of closed my eyes and clicked.

Pic 3 - Not a particulary good photo...but one that shows I am not lying when I say, Tori was 'pole dancing'.

Pic 4 - what is and always has been referred to as 'THE BRIDGE'. In years gone by, when Shell and I were younger than Matthew now....we played on this bridge for hours and hours. I love this pic....perhaps my favourite of the whole holiday!!!!!

Pic 5 - Michelle trying to get on to that darn old tree stump that we are both soooo sure was never so hard to climb when we were 8!

Pic 6 - Me - showing Shell how it is done...???!!! (Different angle of course)

Pic 7 - Just a cool pic of Matthew on the bridge. (Does he ever take a bad pic?)

Pic 8 - 'Just let me fix my hair'. Michelle so 'not' intentionally posing for the camera.

Pic 9 - My gorgeous Mum....yes it is blurry...but I still love the photo!

Pic 10 - The worm that Matthew caught with a fish!

Pic 11- Now this is what camping is all about - mud castles by the campfire...hehe.

Pic 12 - My daddy!

Pic 13 - Matthew taking the phrase 'go climb a tree' literally!

Pic 14 - My gorgeous nephew with a snake around his neck..................................................................(no not really.... he'd probably freak, it is just a tyre tube....I think!)

Pic 15 - Ray.....Love the hat babe.

Ok - that is it! There were, as I mentioned, many more pics to choose from - but I think this bunch gives a reasonably good idea of our holiday. Brian and Adam managed to avoid the camera somehow but I do solemly swear that I will catch you both one day! Hope you enjoyed. Will be back soon with some Tori b'day pics!

Hugs and Kisses

What awesome pictures. That is such a great tradition! I just love the bridge shot-beautiful picture! Tori and Matthew are gorgeous children-I know that is why you took about 500 pictures! I am so glad you had a great trip!

Isn't camping the best. Such wonderful memories. If you have Windows on your computer you might have the Windows movie maker. Do a search for it. Jaime told me about it. I did a search. I had it and I made a slide show viewing of my pictures from our Disneyland trip. It was much much much easier.
