We were lucky to get cheap flights and planned on going on a weekend when there was a good game of footy on. We knew we would only be in Melbourne for a couple of days as we have to get back to school and work, so we planned on filling the days with lots of things to see and do.
The kids were so excited to see each other. Nicki and Alex's kids loved watching the boys on their gadgets.
Scienceworks Museum. Aaron and I had actually been there eighteen years ago - before we got married. The boys thought it was pretty cool to know that Aaron had actually been there. The boys had never been and kept asking me what it was like, but I couldn't remember a thing! All I could remember was that there were lots of interactive exhibits and that it was really good.
Jalen doing a weather report, which he could then watch back.
It reminded us of the National Sports Museum in Melbourne, where we went once before with Aaron. There were lots of cool things to do. We especially liked the wheelchair racing.
The House Secrets section was cool as you could see how different things in homes work.
Before we left we went outside and had lunch and a play in the outdoor playgrounds. It had an amazing view of the West Gate Bridge with the city behind it.
It was such a beautiful day - about 24 degrees (celcius) so we loved being back in shorts and t-shirts again.
We spent the rest of the day doing a bit of shopping and I hoped to take Harri to the footy that night to watch the Bombers V Cats, but we didn't think about it till we got there and it was sold out. I kept reminding Harri that it was okay as we had tickets to go to the footy the following night, which he was so excited about. I forget that there is usually more than one game in Melbourne every weekend. It was probably good that we didn't go as it would've meant an extra late night and we were tired already after a fun and busy day.
