Our day in Sydney was based around the Narnia Exhibition at the Powerhouse Museum and Meg's request for Yum Cha. I had asked for recommendations on facebook and was told Marigold on George Street was the answer. Having never experienced Yum Cha I did some googling so that I knew what was involved. It was a great, if not slightly scary, experience!
We'd eaten most of it by this point!
We then had a quick dash to Gap and back to the Powerhouse. The kids all enjoyed Narnia, Robert insisted on a quick whip around the Wiggles again, then the Lego exhibit before heading out to Darling Harbour where we couldn't drag the kids away from the playground.
Darling Harbour appears to be haunted!
On the way back to the car they were all doing their usual jumping about in fountains when 2 of the boys collided and Jonathan went in, we all laughed, then Meg went in! We laughed again and then Joseph went in! I couldn't believe it and couldn't speak for crying with laughter! Thankfully they were also laughing and not too far from the car to get stripped and cosied up!
When Saturday came around she had requested Lego, which, as you can no doubt tell, is the "in thing" in these parts at the moment, and I was very glad indeed that the Target Toy Sale just happened to coincide and meant I could get both things she had mentioned, from us and on behalf of the "rellies". Thank you Target!
She did some building, then we had a little Mother-Daughter time at Frankies Place, then friends came for dinner and Sand Castle birthday cake in the evening. Rachel made flags for the cake and decided on a Saltire for Meg's place of birth, a Tricoleur for Bastille Day and the Australian flag for our current position. If there had been room, there would have been a Union Jack. Niamh was a little disturbed that there was no English flag! Meg declared it to be the "Best birthday EVER!"
"Happy Birthday to you!"
