Hubby is currently on holidays for two weeks. It's been a while since he's had a decent break from work, so apart from a much needed holiday that we had planned, we decided to take the girls on a "Big Adventure - Little Ted style", and on Wednesday took "Popette" and "Cherub" into the city.
As "Popette" had been talking non-stop about treasure and treasure maps lately, we decided to take her to the Pirates exhibition at the National Maritime museum.
"Popette" and I spotted a trail marking the way to the exhibition, so in my best pirate voice, I let out a couple "Argh me maties", and "Shiver me timbers" (Hubby thought I had well & truly lost my mind!) and we made our way.
With our treasure map in hand we went in search for clues, and finally located our treasure in the pirates cave. "Popette" loved the exhibit, and was already to walk through it again when we persuaded her to stop for lunch (our girl loves her food!)
After some calamari and chips, and gentle persuation on our part, we headed off to the Powerhouse Museum for "The Wiggles" exhibition.
The girls loved the exhibit, particularly Dorothy on her swing and her little cottage, where "Popette" and I made Dorothy some paper flowers. We didn't get to see it all, as we ran out of time, so will have to plan a return visit.
Afterwards, we caught a tram back to Star City, where we picked up some macarons from Zumbo's (Mummy & Daddy's treat) then headed off to Rozelle for a quick play at a friends before heading home.
We all had a great day, especially "Popette" who couldn't thank us enough, which was so gorgeous.
So this week I am grateful for going on adventures; big or small, and for the time we spend together discovering places that are new to us or somewhere were we haven't been for a long time and forgotten how much fun it can be.
What are you grateful for today?
