We went for a ride on the Puffing Billy steam train yesterday. The kids had an amazing amount of fun. It was a lot chillier than expected, but the weather held off until we got on the train back home. We had a little picnic at Emerald Lake Park. Everything was amazingly lush, green and wet. (I nearly took a slide down a muddy embankment because I was in a hurry and didn't follow the footpath.) The kids climbed the trees, looked at the ducks and made a wish in the wishing well. All in all quite a successful day.
We got home a little late and with one child sick with a cold, so we never made it to the store to pick up my birthday present. Seems the new camera will have to wait a few more days.
