So in what is now becoming a bit of a tradition, we headed up to the Bunya Mountains for Easter again this year. Delle and I started our journey well by listening solely to Passenger on the way to Gatton where we came upon a herd of men with their toy planes. Not long after arrival we heard an almighty bang and came across the above picture of Simon's crushed hopes and dreams. It hit the gutter at great speed, leaving a dent and almost taking out Tim's head.

We arrived late at the Bunya Gunya and emerged the next morning for some frisbee and french cricket.
Amoungst an assortment of games played was the very relevant Killer Bunnies. What better way to celebrate Easter then by playing a card game depicting the violet deaths of bunnies by an assortment of cruel and unusual weapons? This is a glimpse of what turned out to be a 5 hour marathon game with dinner break in between. The board was cleared by the Magic Urn which to Caleb's glee gave him everybody's bunnies and just about everyone's carrots. This was combated several rounds later with a " pay 2 dolla for every carrot" card. He kissed about 18 carrots goodbye and the game pretty much restarted again, hence 5 hour game!
Delle and I were in charge of the Easter Egg hunt and "general frivolities" so we came up with a few challenging factors to make it extra hard for the big kids...
Using our superb hiding skills we set out with sticky tape and proceeded to make it as difficult as possible!
Besides being held at dusk, we also devised a points system whereby different colours got a different point.

The men were in charge of breakfast which was nice to wake up to, I have to say.
