Busy weekend for the Little Man

What a weekend the Little Man had...first up was our trip to the Blue Mountains. Funny story to go with this actually...we heard about a great weekend in Winter last year that Scenic World were holding where the kids could feel like they were in the snow. Well this sounded great seeing as the kids had never seen snow and even I had only seen it once. So off we go, my sister, niece, little man and I for the hour and a half drive up the Mountains to see this "spectacular" snow event.

It was bitterly cold but we were all so excited that this didn't bother us. We arrived to NO SNOW and a few little tents which held a colouring in competition, face painting and a "find the prize" game. To say we were disappointed was an understatment and everyone else was complaining as well. Then they announced that there was going to be a "snow blizzard" starting at 11:00am so we waited for that to happen and guess what....it was just giant fans blowing detergent bubbles!!! Can you believe it! After hyping the kids up to see the snow we left very disappointed with the whole thing and then drove the hour and a half back.

Anyway, got back to tell everyone about our day and Mum decided to write a complaint to the place and a few days later we received a family pass to go back up there and have full use of the Skyway etc. So this is what we did on Saturday. However, when we turned the corner just before the place it was blanketed in complete white! My sister and I just looked at each other and decided we were never meant to come back to this place.

We proceeded anyway and thought what the heck the pass was free and we could still have fun. Our first ride was on the Skyway and going over was still very white. We could see a little as we went through the cloud and then whilst we were waiting for the return trip, all of a sudden the cloud just lifted and we had a perfectly clear sky! It was amazing and needless to say we had a faboulous rest of the day!

This is when the cloud started lifting

At least he isn't scared of heights...here is the little man looking through the floor of the skyway

The Three Sisters

The little man then had a sleep over with his cousin and on the Sunday the kids were taken out on another secret adventure day by my Mum and Dad. They caught the ferry into the city and to Darling Harbour and went to the IMAX cinema and saw the Dinosaur movie in 3D. Mum and Dad said it was hilarious watching the kids trying to "catch" things as they came out of the screen.

I must say I have never seen Mum and Dad looking so exhausted after their big adventure! But my Little Man certainly had a lot to tell at Pre-School yesterday.
