We’ve just returned from an impromptu road trip to visit family in South Australia. We had amazing weather (29-32 degrees every day) and had an absolute ball…I feel like I’ve been away for weeks rather than only 7 days :-)

:: on arrival we made our way to the Adelaide Showgrounds farmers market where we picked up some divine Quark for Little B. It tastes great with jam, or maple syrup. We also got to shop for supplies as we always stay in self contained accommodation

:: then on to catch up with some new baby second cousins. I’ve forgotten how little and sweet newborn babies really are.

:: then what trip would be complete without a few days at the beach…sunset on the beach is such a blissful time of day

:: Little B fell in love with the bunk beds at the caravan park we stayed in and could be found sitting up on the top bunk resting and listening to The Wombles on audiobook on a few hot afternoons

:: We got to catch up with my grandparents which was the highlight of the trip (Little B adores Great Grammy and Great Grampy)

:: Then we spent a few days in Adelaide city where we checked out the Adelaide museum with more second cousins (the closest thing Litle B has to first cousins). Highlights included a giant squid set out in an old elevator shaft, the sparkly minerals and meteorites and some dinosaur bones.

:: And then we couldn’t leave empty handed and as an old South Australian girl born and bred, we shopped up at Haigh’s chocolates for Easter!! Yummy!!
