"The Trip" Recapped

We're back from Tassie safe and sound and everything pretty much went well.

The weather got progressively worse the closer we got to the Saturday of Adam's birthday party and then instantly improved afterwards but that's to be expected really when you're betting on good weather for a BBQ. I got good feedback and everyone seemed to have a good time and enjoy the food even if it was cold and windy. The kids were kept pretty entertained with bottles of bubbles and balloons.

We spent most of the holiday visiting Adam's relatives, showing off the boys and running around organising party stuff. It was good that Adam's Dad got to spend a decent amount of time with them since he hadn't seen them since they were 3 weeks old.

We went to Richmond and Port Arthur (via the Blow Hole and the Tesalated Pavement) but that was the only real "touristy" things we did. I really wanted to get an olden day photo at Richmond of the boys but they were closed on the day we went there and I didn't get a chance to go back.

Overall it was exhausting, and not really a holiday! But I think it was worth it.

The boys handled the new faces and places well. They were pretty well behaved on the boat and didn't really mind being pass the parcelled around everyone.

I think we've built lots of really good memories!
