Guess what? We went back to the Royal Botanic Gardens last Sunday!
Our friends were away for the weekend and lent us their car, so we thought, why not go to the city again! And the hubby wanted to do a picnic, so we cooked spaghetti bolognese, bundled everything and everyone, and off we went.
One of the things that excite us about Melbourne is the outdoor life. Even before we moved here, the hubby and I were talking about going to Melbourne parks every other weekend. So last weekend, we made a visit to the Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria, specifically for the Ian Potter Foundation Children’s Garden.
After being in Melbourne for more than 2 weeks, we finally got the chance to visit the city last weekend. It’s not a journey for the faint-hearted though! It took us about an hour to get to our destination, and then another hour back.
As we are all new to winter and cold weather, I am constantly thinking about how to keep my kids warm and at the same time how not to overheat them. My mind is constantly planning how to dress them – how many layers, which material, which jacket, when to remove the layers, how to prepare them for the night, etc.
One of the biggest things that my family and I had been preparing for was this big move to Australia. The hubby came first two months ago, to get settled down in his job and to get a house. And finally, the kids and I are able to join him.
