AT MY HOUSE...

We went on a little adventure into the city on the weekend. We have been spending far too much time at home lately and needed to get out as a family. We went to the Light Festival in Fed Square (centre of Melbourne) on Saturday night which celebrated the Winter Solstice and the idea of light in all different cultures.

I was struck, as always, by the innocence of childhood and the things they are enthralled by. We take so many things for granted, yet children are experiencing things for the very first time every day! There is a lot to be said for 'looking through the eyes of a child'. They were too young to remember being in the "city" before and were overawed by the size of the buildings and the different atmosphere and just couldn't get enough of it. The tram ride was probably the biggest hit of all!

Thanks for joining in again.

Sounds like it was a fantastic night out for everyone. We keep hearing a lot about it at our house from Mr 4 - especially that big red sun you have in the photo. He loved it.

Last weekend, no one changed out of their pyjamas except for the gym competition kid (and i threw things over the top - it was a 6am Sunday start). I 'm not sure it was too different the weekend before. Time to come out of hibernation and EXPLORE! Or maybe knit a few more wintry warmers first...
