Sorry I missed this - I nearly had a chance to make it too!
I'm not that big on huge groups of people when I get away but this sounded like a ball. I reckon the family will be old enough by next year and we might make a special effort to get across there for it.
Everyone obviously put a lot of effort in and congrats to you all for doing it.
Mate, dont let the kids stop you.. My youngest was camping at 9 months (now 2 1/2)... absolutely loves every minute we are there... just ask everyone else... she wanted to be up and playing at 4am Sunday.... LOL.... Seriously though, would you rather be stuck at home with kids, or out doing things you enjoy... they will adapt!!!
