Life as we know it is busy. Between two school-aged children, after school activities, working full-time, running a household, and all of our other commitments; we’re simply exhausted. Knowing that taking time off between now and Christmas is impossible and impractical; a weekend escape is the perfect remedy!
We are really blessed to live on the NSW South Coast...just 2-3 hours north, south or west, and it's completely different scenery; and that's the perfect travelling distance for us for a quick weekend away...particularly as being cooped up in the car for an extended period of time tends to drive the kids crazy (that's if they look up from the iPads). Hubby and I have been brainstorming our next short trip...
Me: "We could go to Young? They have the Cherry Festival coming up in December. I've always wanted to go cherry picking."
Hubs: "I don't think the kids would be overly interested in a place like Young."
"There's a fudge factory"
"I stand corrected."
"What about Boorowa?"
"There's nothing in Boorowa."
"I wonder if we missed the annual running of the sheep?"
"There's Wyangala Dam. We could go fishing."
"How about Canberra?"
"Seth just got back from Canberra."
"Yeah, but this time we can all go to Questacon, and the museum."
"True, plus there's the zoo. Seth slept through our last visit to Canberra Zoo."
"Well, he was only 7 months old."
"Let's head to the Blue Mountains! We haven't been there for years. Actually, I don't think the kids have ever been."
"Yeah, we could take them on that scary train thing that goes down the side of the cliff."
"Jenolan Caves isn't that far from there either."
"Let's add it to the list."
So, that's what we're going to do. We're going to let the little kids choose where us big kids will take them...as long as they factor in the following...
- There has to be fun and interesting stuff to do
- A nice hotel or cabin to stay in
- Loads of fresh air
- Access to good food
- The big kids get final say.
