Saturday morning brought on a mad flurry of packing and excitement at our house, as the babes prepared for a short trip away to Cowes. We were taking "Franky", "Franky", being the caravan of course! The last time we had gotten away was about 9 months ago, so the kids were beside themselves with excitement. Funny, but they were sitting in the car ready to go about 2 hours before we actually left home...
(Tully) "Where are we going Mama bear?" (Me) "A place called Phillip Island,and we will be staying in Cowes". (Tully) "I am going to tell Lillie and Claye". So this will be interesting I thought to myself and I follow him to watch him bear the news... (Tully) "Hey guys, we are going to Fill up Island to stay with the cows". (Claye) & (Lillie) roar with laughter and then (Claye) "We are bubby , we are". Something so nothing, but ever so sweet to observe.
After all the preparation we arrive & set up camp, for which we spent 4 glorious days!! Bike riding, Beach bumming, Ice-cream eating & dripping, Relaxing, Laughing & Loving!!
It was 42 degrees the first day and really hot for the rest of the stay. Dusty had not slept in "Franky" before, so we were not sure how that would go, but he was a dream! Slept with Mama the 1st night, poor Dadda got kicked out to sleep in the bunk bed.
Lillie, Claye & Tully had a ball, they rode bikes until dark, swam at the beach, played at the playground, explored new things and slept like little tuckered out angels!
We really did have the most blissful time away on our perfect Summer getaway...
Thank you sunny sunshine for all your warmth!
