Canberra Day 1 of 2

Hi all it is now Monday afternoon and what a full day we have had, I woke Jessica at around 8ish to go to Macca’s for breakfast before we headed to the dinosaur museum only to find they didn’t open till 10am so we ended up going to Cockington Green which is garden with miniature buildings it wasn’t free though and we had to pay $19.50 per adult and $11.50 for Leo, if you are interested in knowing more go here: http://www.cockingtongreen.com.au/

Thankfully Cockington Green was pretty much across the road from the dinosaur museum, of course the main reason for the trip was to go to the dinosaur museum as Leo loves dinosaurs, Leo also too his toy dinosaur “Harris” with him to the museum to check it out. His mum also bought him a large green plush dinosaur who he has named Green Arrow Leefin Meadows. Harris doesn’t have middle name as when Leo got Harris 6 years ago he didn’t know about middle names and it is too late now to give him one, according to Leo. Jessica also bought a plush dinosaur for her collection who is called Roar-Roar Roar Meadows

We finished off our sight seeing with a trip to the Royal Australian Mint where they make our coins the paper money is firstly not made out of paper but polymer is printed in Melbourne. http://www.ramint.gov.au/

While at the mint my feet started to really hurt, and I ended up taking my shoes off and walking around with just my socks on, something I would not have dreamed of doing a few years back but I have reached the age where I chose comfort first fashion second.

So when we called in at Coles (supermarket) I didn’t bother putting my shoes back on and felt ok walking in just my socks, I could have tried walking barefoot but I don’t like that just saying. Socks I am ok with barefoot not so much unless of course when I am home where in summer I rarely wear any type of footwear. Tim said I should had worn my thongs but no thank you I find that the thongs I have also hurt me feet after a short while.

So now we are back at the cabin, Leo is in bedroom playing with his toys and Jessica is reading via her ipad and Tim is reading his bible and I am writing a blog post, with no tv on as background noise. Wow how things have changed wasn’t too long ago both Tim and I liked to have the tv on for background noise now both of us have times when we like the quiet, I do more then Tim but he is beginning to like the quiet more and more.
