Wiggly Wonder

It's been a while since we went on an adventure. And today, I was keen to take the boys somewhere they had not experienced before. So the Powerhouse Museum it was. We met up with Nana in the city, as she loves joining us on these excursions. Angus and Felix had not been swept up in The Wiggles phenomenon... until now. The museum are running the most fantastic exhibition, with interactive activities aplenty. Both boys were quite content to park themselves there for the day. And we humoured them, as they ran free for a couple of hours. Because observing the joy on their faces, actually also humoured us.

Among many memorable moments, some highlights were:
*Riding the big red car, in front of a giant movie screen... absolutely. mesmerised.
*Dorothy the Dinosaur's garden, where we made paper roses and held a tea party, while a massive Dorothy sat swinging and singing her lungs out.
*The distrusting looks Felix kept shooting in the direction of Dorothy on her swing... on reflection, she does look pretty scary, especially through the eyes of a two year old.
*Colouring in special messages to post in Wags the dog's bone letterbox.
*Cheeky giggles shared in Captain Feathersword's ship... they seriously melt my heart.
*Prepping fruit salad in the wiggly kitchen. 
*And... playing mechanic, servicing the big red car, with real working, noisy tools.

Followed up by lunch with Nana and a big play in the park, at Darling Harbour. Big day, big fun.
