Canberra Trip

Back in during the summer holidays,
when the crowds are heading to the beach, 
we headed off on a road trip to Canberra,
it was a good 12 hours in the car, the boy's travelled really well.
I used to live in Canberra about 20 years ago and loved it.

We visited Parliment House

The Mint

Questacon, a great place, we could have spent all day there,

They made their own space ship to feature in a
3D movie, then watched the movie,
they even appear in the movie too

So much for the boys to do, all hands on
and a great learning experience.

We rode the beautiful old carosel in the city

Climbed on huge sculptures

Looked out over the city from Black Mountain,
(we were on the tower from the pic before)

Canberra is a great city, which does not feel like a city at all,
imagine how great these tree's look now that it's Autumn.
People give Canberra a bad wrap, but it's a great spot
for a holiday, lot's of free stuff to do, easy to get around
and great shopping.
(I did visit Handmade Canberra, more on that later :) 

We caught up witha few friends, my cousin and
stayed with the lovely Barker family,
it was great to catch up with all their crew.
They have 5 daughters, only the youngest, Annie is at home now,
The boys favourite part about their Canberra Trip was Annie,
(and the water fight at Sharons - later too)
They said she was so pretty and nice :)

With another lot of holidays creeping up very quickly,
I would highly recommend a trip to the nations capital.

Have a nice Thursday
and be good.
