all i can say is... i'm disappointed with the melbourne aquarium! i guess i just hadn't expected it'd be that tiny :( you could certainly have completed the tour in under 30min
on the positive side though, ethan and emma had a really good time at the birthday party on sat. the cupcakes were simply unbelievable! till this day, i'm baffled by how much time and effort people invest in making such pretty cupcakes. i just don't think i'm that sort of person with that sort of patience. you can count on me to eat them though! hehe
so anyway the kids came back from the party with some goodie bags (filled with lollies.. what else??) and a paint set each. they insisted on doing the painting on sunday morning as soon as we woke up.
thank goodness for the alfresco cos i would NOT have been happy if they'd made all that mess inside. it helped that we had a warm sunday too - 27 degrees as compared to the chilly 15 degrees today!! no wonder i'm falling sick again!
i think they had more fun mixing all the different paint colours up than actually painting the pictures itself. looks like they're finally starting to enjoy the fascinating world of science!
