Champion of Champions/Easter

What a busy weekend. We left late Friday afternoon to head to Bribie Island to stay with my Godparents for the weekend. (So much drama with accomodation). It was really great to catch up with them.
Saturday we left just after breakfast to head to Caloundra for the Tartan Spectualar as part of Champion of Champions. Watched a few of the pipe bands perform before Jillian participated in "The Fling for Logan" There were 412 dancers, it was just amazing to see all these dancers on the floor doing the Highland fling.
Jill then started competiting at 2.30. There were 18 dancers in her group. She had a sore toe and was very nervous. she didn't place today but she did dance beautifully. She would have placed about tenth. Back to Bribie we went about 7.30pm. Mum and Allison came to watch as well after visiting Mark (doing much better)They called in as well for a quick visit (they stayed the night) We had a few quite ones.
Happy Easter the easter bunny found us..... After breakfast we had an egg hunt for the kids, then we went for a swim at Red Beach before lunch.
After lunch was back to Caloundra for day 2.. Champion of Champions - Jill participated in Queensland Titles. Again she danced beautifully there were 20 in her group today as a couple stepped up from Beginners to Novice. she made new friends and her last dance was the Sean Tribbus and she cam 5th overall. WOW what an amazing effort. We got back to Bribie about 10pm. After we watched a few of the girls from the dance studio receive their sashes for placing/ or winning the State Titles.
Monday morning we had a look around Bribie (was going for another swim - I was too tired) Headed home at lunch time. When we got home we went to Mum's again (was there Friday to see my brother and his family) for Easter with my sister and her family. My other brother was there also.
Now 3 days later and I am still exaushted! But it was a great weekend
