I have just had the best Easter ever!! We took a trip to Melbourne and had a huge family get together on the Friday. It was great to see al the cousins and aunts/uncles again, lots of family photos were taken and it is always such fun!! Then on Saturday it was a trip to the Zoo to meet up with old friends and of course family members came along too. It is always great seeing the kids faces light up with all the animals the love seeing, and of course we let the kids climb the tree we used to climb as kids (so did my parents so they are the third generation to climb the tree!!) Fantastic. And of course no trip to Melbourne is complete without a trip to Science Works!! this month they have the sideshow/carnival exhibit, the kids loved the bed of nails and juggling the best :). Awesome fun to be had by all!

  • We used to meet up with our relatives at a particular reserve every year on Good Friday. One couple were elderly but fiercely independent so we went to the one nearest their place so they didn’t have far to drive. We all took plenty of food and drinks and shared it around. Part of the area was always shaded so if it was too warm we would sit in that area. There was plenty of room for the kids to run about or play games some of which we joined in. They have since upgraded it and put a large area of playground equipment.


  • Sounds divine! I would so love a family celebration like this. I have never heard of Science Works, it sounds like a great family day out, I will try and remember it fir next time we’re in Melbourne
