All the kids were beside themselves with excitement. They had never been away for a week and the younger ones had never been to Denmark (400kms south of Perth). The kids and I packed the car mostly the day before. Dad had to work until lunch but when he arrived home we were completely packed and ready to leave.
The kids were angels on the way down. Thankfully, Dami slept. After 4 hours of driving, we arrived.
We were amazed at the view from the holiday house. We felt like we were up in the treetops, overlooking the ocean. The two storey house was also a novelty, but it meant watching Dami carefully as he climbed up and down the steps, just for fun.
There was just enough time to unpack the car, light the fire, eat dinner, get pjs on and hop into bed.
