Last night hubby came home and announced he had to head to Canberra early this morning for a meeting - practically for a couple of hours and head home. I said 'wish we could come, that would be cool for a day out' and as soon as it came out of my mouth I realised I didn't have to wish - we could do it - because I wasn't going to work and the girls didn't have an activity planned... so I stayed up late and made some Chockie-Wheaty-Treaty-Bikkies (recipe coming, promise!) and packed lunches for everyone.
Bright and early (well actually it was dark) we set off at 6am dressed and breakfasted, down the M2, M7 and M5 to not-so-chilly Canberra - it was quite a nice day and not raining like Sydney. Hubby dropped us off at DFO, where Monkey Mania - a play centre.
Kids loved it, and even I got into the action, on the slippery slides (lost my stomach!) jumping castle, ball pit, ball play court and foam ball launch pit. It was great to play with the kids and perfectly suited to their age range. Fun. We had a great time making music on the foot keyboard too (pic above).
If you're a Canberran, or a visitor to DFO they also do a shop and drop where they will babysit for you for over 5 year olds.. (I had too much fun to even think about leaving them!) and also do birthday parties etc. Until the end of this month they also have a special $5 per child and 1 accompanying adult free.
