Vacation - Part 3


Or - could this vacation recap get any longer.

Can you tell that I am still sadly trying to hold on to the last shreds of my holiday???

So if you are sick of my Fiji posts please feel free to skip this one....but seeing as all of our other Australian friends and family trawl this blog to catch up on what we have been doing I feel obliged to give them the full run down.

So what to do in Fiji for 2 weeks...well....

A lot of snorkelling and swimming. I could not believe how many tropical fish there were.


Lots of eating. I think we spent about $300 at the icecream shop during our visit.


Hanging out in the sun and playing in the sand...


(Oh yeah baby check out the sand sculptures.....The Great Pyramid in the center and then Elaine is working on the pathetic little sandcastles for this family!).
You can see our kids are quite "creative" with their sand sculptures too!


We did some kayaking


Drank our share of cocktails


(don't worry those are "virgin" daiquaris the kids are drinking....isn't a swim up bar an awesome idea!!)

Hot tubbing


Hair braiding


Family time


And yes I even fit in some running. (Oh, come can tell that the little dot there is me!)


It was ALL good!

The great thing about a vacation is the going...the coming back is a whole other thing. Now,  coming back to lovely 75' weather would ease the post holiday blues but NOT 45' windy, rainy weather. Ahhh....Spokane in the spring. Back to reality.


  1. What a great way to spend time with the whole family. Looks like a lovely time was had by all.

    And I'm not jealous at all.

    Well, maybe a little bit.

  2. I only get random blog posts in my feed reader from you? What gives?! I've been missing out on the FULL rundown! ;)

    I agree with Matt. Fiji looks just AWFUL. ;)

    I love the running picture. That's dedication! Good luck at the Half this weekend! :)

  3. gr8 pix, especially the group shot..

  4. Who would get tired of reading about vacation? I live for that! If I can't go on vacation, at least I can live vicariously through others! :)

    I LOVE that pyramid sand castle!
