The birthday girl with my 3 kids..
But I toughened up, packed the car, bought the kids a toy each and some new colouring books and off we headed.. a 2 night stay out in the nether regions of Dandenong and we have survived, we saw the animals, we blew out the candles and of course we saw lots of roadworks (which are a highlight to a 2 year old who has been raised driving diggers and bobcats!)
I didnt get to the Sisters market which was on the wish list, but after 3 hours at the zoo, the kids were asleep before I drove out of the carpark.
The highlight was seeing a baboon with a bottom that looked like a rainbow, and also a monkey that scratched his bum and then sniffed his finger.. (continually!)
Now this week, once I catch up on the washing from the 3 days away, I plan to make a pincushion, designed by the one and only Dear Fii....
