"Culture Vultures"

On Sunday we went to two plays; one in the morning then another in the evening. The weather has cooled down a bit so it was a lovely day out. The morning play was Hansel & Gretel at the Norman Lindsay Gardens. This was the first time the kids had seen a play in the park. They loved it.

The play was interactive and it was set over different parts of the park. The kids could join in by pretending to be trees and rocks in the forest when Hansel & Gretel got lost. Following the actors around the garden was good for the little ones - they did't get bored sitting in the same spot.

After the play, we wandered around the gardens as the kid played. Of course, Katie had to test out the garden trees.


Katie and her brothers met some friendly goldfish that nibbled their fingers...



... and in the other pond there were some tadpoles that were almost frogs.

In the evening we met some friends down at the Penrith Regional Gallery to see Little Red Riding Hood.

What a brilliant idea! getting the kids involved is an inspired way to prevent bordom and restless bums that don't want to stay on their seats anymore! Sounds like a fun day out was had by all xXx

A beautiful day. Those fish are divine. One of my favourite things to do with the girls is to look at the fish at the Adelaide botanical gardens pond.
