The last few weeks we've been busy working on the house again and it's easy to forget to have some fun.
So on Sunday morning we decided to surprise the girls with a trip to the Dandenong's for a ride on Puffing Billy which we've never done as a family before. I was up at 7am making a veggie slice to take for lunch and I even managed to bake two chocolate cakes before we left at 9.30am.
Andy and I were reliving our childhood by being big kids and sitting on the edge with the girls, waving at people in cars as we went through crossings. It was so much fun even though at times my backside went a bit numb.
The ride to Emerald Lake took an hour where we stopped for some lunch a play and as a treat a ride on the paddle boats in the glorious sunshine. I was exhausted from peddling around for 20min, it's harder than it looks.
On the trip back the clouds came over it got colder and at times rained but we didn't care, our faces were beaming, we had such a fun day.
