How pleasant it is to be in this great city. Melbourne is one place the children and I have not been with my husband during a shutdown, so this is wonderful.
Being born in Geelong I do have a lot of family and friends spread throughout Melbourne so my time here is turning very social.
Arriving into Melbourne we had a pleasant surprise from my cousin Jenny and her beautiful family that met us on the highway for a quick catch up. Was not long enough like always.
The children & I made a trip into the city via the train to visit the Aquarium then to the Pancake Parlour for lunch.
I totally exhausted the kids!
We had a special evening with Jeanne and her lovely family, the only problem was, time went too quick again!
We made a trip to Geelong on Sunday to fellowship with my home church, catch up with close family friends then a very last minute stop at the Geelong show 1 hour before it shut, which we got in for free and quickly grabbed the kiddies a couple of show bags each for fun.
