OMG this is getting so big. Im so exited.
Am on a high as it was Molly's fourth birthday party today, so ive had 25 screaming four year olds to contend with!!!!
Re the camping thing Mozzy, we camped for the first time last year with a 6 and 3 year old. It was great fun, even more so when we couldnt even put the tent up and had to ask someone to help us. Duh. Hopefully this time will be a little more prepared. But saying that weve only camped twice.
Oh and sorry Mozzy, yeah ready beds are available.
Weve got two, sleeping bags wit blow up bed attached to the bottom. Great fun.
And hey, if the kids roll out they havnt got far to go.:D
just had a look at them beds ... bit pricey!!
so, who can find me the best deal ;)
Ian, Rachel, Harry 16 & Georgia 13
Arrived in Adelaide 14th June 2008
You might actually be better off with a double blow up bed, when our 3 were little they all got on one , you'll manage 2 little ones on one easy , and there less lightly to fall off . There better if they have boxed sides too. Dont think you can use a lilo thing you have in a pool cos you'll just slip off! If you dont have a gas bbq or 2/3 ring gas burner , ( aldi and asda have them in now dirt cheap and the blow up beds ) and charcoal bbq's arnt allowed your stuck really!!
Sometimes , sites have a microwave that you pay for 20p a go , dont know if this one has though!Might be worth ringing them up to see what facilities they have.
We once camped when the twins were only 10 weeks old and they were still being breast fed at the time , we went with a group of freinds NIGHTMARE ,
i couldnt drink (thats bad enough) , hardly slept (double night feeds) , and did not enjoy myself at all, the fact that our oldest was only just 2 and kept crawling out off the tent into the mud didnt help as well , needless to say we didnt go again till they were 1 year old and Jacob 3 !!
Now we have the caravan we go off every other weekend rain or shine , we do still take the tent when we know the weathers going to be good though, you cant beat proper camping!!
We even go to a place in Pickering called "vale of Pickering " New Years Eve its fab, fire works party and everything , the kids love it.
As long as your dry and warm through the night you'll love it , you'll also find the kids sleep like logs too.
Looking forward to meeting everyone,
We first went when Holly was 8 weeks old - completely different experience for us - she slept through for over 12 hours a night, all that fresh air must have knocked her out!
We absolutely love camping - could never have this many holidays a year if we went in hotels!
We use the multi kadac cooker - has barbeque, griddle pan and stuff on and we take a 2 stove burner. Julia taking her George Foreman grill thing. Could always get electric hookup for your microwave!
We don't eat out when camping - the kids would kill us if we dragged them away from the field!
