A family weekend

IMG_4793 There is something rather lovely about a long weekend. Particularly when Mr BBB has a whole 4 days off in a row (!!!) and a trip away is planned. IMG_4663  IMG_4665 And so we found ourselves on the road to Bundanoon last Friday. The car and camper trailer laden with all the bits and bobs that a 3 year old and 7 month old require. And then some more. IMG_4661 A few hours later, the rest of Mr BBB’s extended family arrived, and the reunion celebrations kicked into gear. For a Golden Wedding Anniversary for his Aunty and Uncle, and 70th Birthday for his Aunty, were the perfect reason to get the family together. Aunties, Uncles, Cousins….the whole clan had an absolute ball.  We chatted, we caught up, and we ate. Oh how we ate! The littlest cousins – ranging from 7 months to 7 years – did not stop from the moment they arrived. It didn’t seem to matter that they don’t get to see each other that often, for they wasted no time in making up grand adventures and generally just having a ball!

The rain finally stopped, the sun came out, and we jumped at the chance to explore a nearby National Park.

What did you get up to this weekend?
