our Melbourne Adventure

Every summer, after spending 10 days at the beach with my parents, our family has a Melbourne Adventure. Each of our 4 children - and sometimes the adults! - gets to choose a place to visit in or around Melbourne, and we pack sandwiches and go out for the day. Here's some holiday pics from this year.

Andy (3) decided he'd like to go on the "twain", so we went on Puffing Billy, an old-style steam train in the hills outside Melbourne.

Ben, as always, chose Scienceworks, where we went to the Planetarium and the Lightning Show, and explored the exhibits.

Thomas (6) wanted to visit the animals at the Melbourne Zoo. Here's Andrew getting up close and personal with a lizard in the reptile house.

Happy-go-lucky Lizzy - as always! - chose something that was pure entertainment: this year, it was Luna Park.

As you can see, we had a lot of fun!

It looks like there is lots to do in Melbourne for kids.
