It is the end of the school holidays here in Perth and I’ve been taking my kids out… A LOT.
We’ve been out every day, meeting friends, enjoying the autumn sunshine, having soooo many relaxing and fantastic outings. We’ve visited parks, water parks, fun parks, playgrounds, beaches, riversides, cafes, museums, libraries, shops, movies and more.
It really is a sweet life. I look around myself so often and think that me, my family, my friends, our society… we live like royalty. It’s truly amazing. And I feel so grateful.
You can buy a large block of ice (with handle already frozen in) for $12… find a grassy slope, throw a towel over the ice, and kids can spend hours sliding down the hill, having a hootingly good time.
It was so much fun!
Another day, we spent half the day at the Naturescape in Kings Park. Created as a natural playground for children, the park has a flowing creek, little lakes, climbing trees, board walks, tunnels and huts.
Children can make dams out of rocks, make potions with water/sand/leaves, climb ropes and lots of other stuff.
It’s a beautiful concept and my kids loved it. They rated it 10/10 for fun and entertainment.
(The week before they went to Adventure World – water slides and rollercoasters… and it only got 9/10!)
Kids were allowed to take water samples of the wetlands, test its acidity, visibility and look for creatures living in the “swamp”.
But you’ll have to settle for a picture of my feet on the path.
