Winner is: #33 – Janice
Thanks for all of your holiday suggestions a few posts ago. We still haven’t decided what to do (most likely nothing extended). We have a 3 day backbacking trip planned in July (20km in and 20km out with 40lbs on my back) and a camping trip in August (tent trailer with 4 kids). I’d kind of like a holiday that doesn’t involve quite so much work.
Last year we had the BEST family holiday ever (I am not being paid for this endorsement – but it’s not a bad idea – hint-hint –> Sunshine Houseboat Vacations).
When we weren’t hanging out on the beach or in the water, we were on the upper deck “driving” the boat and warming up in the hot-tub. Oh yeah, this baby had everything including a BIG waterslide off the back end.
Keeping Georgia dry wasn’t easy. We had a whole pile of swim diapers along but on this particular day, a walk on the beach fully clothed turned into a skinny dip! Note: she kept on her Bical Grippers baby shoes.
This is my oldest daughter Hayley (and baby cousin Brandon). Hayley doesn’t get much coverage on this site not being a baby and all, BUT even she rates this as her #1 vacation (over Disney, south of France, Spain and other worldly locations that my lucky girl has travelled to).
So if you want a great holiday where your cell phone won’t ring and the laptop will be of no use, then call my friends at Sunshine Houseboat Vacations. Tell them I sent you :). Who knows they may just give me a discount for our next trip, which won’t be this year but will definitely happen again (and again and again).
So I am no Pioneer Woman (takes the best pictures), but feel free to click on the images above to visit my flickr photos and see some more houseboating pictures. Leave me a comment on Flickr – you know I love comments!

In the spirit of houseboating and water – Day 16 is Swim Diapers day.
We’re giving away a Bummis SWIMMI / Cloth Diaper Cover. If you use cloth diapers you can use this cover over them, if not this is a swim diaper as well. It is recommended that you don’t use it for both purposes. I think once it has been exposed to the chemicals in the pool it doesn’t does function very well as a diaper cover.
* A trim and attractive design that has a terrific fit on any baby
* Interior polyester mesh for easy clean ups
* Coated nylon layer sandwiched inside that will hold in the messiest stuff a baby can throw at you!
* Fun, unisex cotton prints on the outside
* Adjustable Aplix closures for a snug and comfortable fit
* Stretchy soft lycra bindings to protect babyâ€™s tender skin
* What should you put inside the SWIMMI? Absolutely nothing!
The winner gets one Bummis SWIMMI in the size of their choice (we’ll pick the print — just let us know who it’s for).
As usual, all you need to do to win is comment AND this part is optional (but hugely appreciated and most likely reciprocated) tell some friends (even one) — if you have a blog let all your readers know about our contest (they’ll love it) and if you aren’t a blogger tell your best friend, your mom, your neighbor! — Once you’ve told some one let me know who or leave me a link to your post in your comment.
