You're camping WHERE? You'll freeze!

We decided to head up to the Downs to visit hubby's Aunty Rob's again this last weekend.   Whenever we mentioned to everyone where we were going the reaction was always the same....YOU'LL FREEZE!

We didn't quite freeze but it was really cold, considering it's been one of the coldest weekends of the year so far and we were in one of the coldest areas in Queensland. 

It was fun though.

The kidlettes got to feed the chooks.


Collect the eggs (Master M only broke one of them which was amazing).


After weeks of gorgeous blue skies, we thought that our arriving with the camper trailer was going to bring rain as it usually seems to.

It threatened but for once it didn't rain on us which was a blessing.


Looking for more eggs.....

The kidlettes loved being able to feed and hold the baby chickens.


As the sun set the chill really set in.


That meant it was time to head inside the house for dinner and warming up before making a dash to the camper trailer and our warm bedding.

We survived the night!

It was another beautiful morning which meant feeding the chooks again.

Of course playing on the hay bales in the shed provided plenty of fun.


I was able to sneak off for a bit of a wander around the place.


Then it was time to pack up and head home, just as the westerly winds picked up again.

Three hours later we were home and I'm amazed at how much washing can amass from just one night away!   Extraordinary!

We're now all looking forward to a longer holiday in the September/October school holidays where we head back up to St Lawrence and a yet to be decided on venue.  Possibly 1770?

Hope you all had a great weekend.
