In June ourselves and Paul, Saphron, Eloise & Hunter all piled into 2 cars and headed up to Ballarat for the day. Quite sensibly Saphron and I opted to take the car with the two younger boys, whilst the dads got to listen to the non-stop chatter of Eloise and Anna in the back seat (non-stop is not an exaggeration). The aim was primarily for Paul & Adrian to check out the Queen memorabilia display, which they both enjoyed. Saphron & I had high hopes of checking out some craft shops, however we were thwarted by the fact that it was the Monday of the Queen’s birthday weekend and therefore a public holiday so the shops were closed. We did however have a lovely time playing at the park near the lake.
