We actually went away for the Easter weekend, up to Port Stephens. I think this is the 3rd post I've written about that area, but at the moment for our family, it's our favourite holiday destination. It's so easy as we can drive there, so can take all our comforts from home, and we rent a house so the kids have lots of space to run around and play. It's close enough that the car trip isn't too painful, but far enough away that we feel like we're on holidays.
We went a couple of days before the Easter weekend and came back on the Tuesday so had some extra time away and avoided the chaos of the holiday traffic (best decision!). My sister came up for a few days too which was so nice for the kids and also gave hubby and I a bit of a break too!
We were so lucky with the weather and had beautiful sunshine and warm days. We spent every day at the beach, had a go at stand up paddle boarding and kayaking and the kids also body boarded and tried out their new skim boards (bought for a bargain at Kmart just before we left).
I shared a lot of images taken on my iPhone on Instagram and Facebook while we were away so I'll just put some of the ones I took with my DSLR here.
