A Family Tradition

Monday, February 14, 2011
Every year for the last 20 something years my family has camped in the same caravan park every single January. We started off staying there for a week, which graduated to two, and then increased to the whole month. For us it is more than just a place to camp, it holds memories, times when we get together as a family away from the trappings of the technological world (although the last couple of years we have all had our iphones down there) and just chill out and relax and enjoy one anothers company. It makes me want to create the same kind of memories for my own children. Although over the years the 4 of us "kids" have grown up, we all still squeeze into to the caravan, practically sitting on each others laps, and we are ok with that, in fact I think everyone likes it. We take the same picture every year
This picture was taken in Jan 1990, The first year that all four of us kiddos spent together, as my youngest brother was on 6 months.
This is from 2007, the last time that all four of us were down at the same time, seeing my older brother now lives in NSW.

And here is the latest picture from Jan 2011, with a couple of extra family members this time!

Here are some pictures from the Yallingup surf break which is viewed from the bbq area of the caravan park I thought I would share, the waves are big on this day!
