Weekend escape to Canberra

On Friday Hubby and I took the girls away for short stay in Canberra. We had been craving a quick getaway, and the chance to see the Toulouse-Lautrec exhibition currently showing at the National Gallery of Australia. Hubby & I used to love weekends away as a couple, and would often zip away for a night or two to Canberra or the Hunter Valley...how things change when you have kids. The last time we went to Canberra was when I was about 3 months pregnant with "Cherub", so it was lovely to take both the girls (even though the drive there took longer than usual, with the 3 stops we made on the way!) away and enjoy the different scenery.

Here's a little collage of our trip:

"Popette" loved running outside the gallery, sitting under the different countries flags, had fun making a shadow puppet in the family activity room inside the exhibition (great idea) and playing at a local park.

All in all a lovely little break from the usual routine.
