Easter in the Australian bush, so many things to be grateful for...

 
We spent Easter camping!
 
 
We had a fantastic time, just being together and enjoying each others company. It was such a reminder of all the beautiful and wonderful things I have been blessed with as a wife and mother, and I am so very grateful for them all...
 
 
Card games at night by the campfire.
 
 
A husband who gets up at 4.30am in the dark to start a roaring fire and make a cooked breakfast so the children and I would be warm ( the nights and early mornings were FREEZING!)
 
 
 
 
 
 
Teenage boys who don't consider themselves too big or too cool to participate in games and Easter egg hunts with their little sisters, who are fantastic leaders and are always offering to help..
 
 

 
That we live in such a beautiful country with gorgeous animals that visited our campsite daily. ( Except maybe the moth, I kid you not it was the size of a bird and possibly could have carried off a small child...maybe...)
 
 
I am grateful that my family didn't make a fuss when we realised I have no experience cooking on a fire and though I had high hopes and was very enthusiastic, the only successful meals I produced were a chicken stew and a salad. We will not mention the cremated potatoes or the bread incident again...
 
 
Cuddles in the cold, by the fire...
 
 
This precious ray of sunshine, Who never fails to brighten our day!
 
 
Our gentle little sweetheart looking after everyone..
 
 
 
 
That at least one of them has the good sense to stay on the ground and keep their mother company. ( who happens to be terrified of heights)
 
 
And last but not least, I am grateful that after 18years my husband is still the love of my life and my very best friend...
 
I hope you all had a wonderful and truly blessed Easter...
