Labour Day Long Weekend - Part I

We just had a long weekend just past and since DH is home at the moment, I decided to plan some activities to do as a family and hope we will have a fun filled weekend!! There are so many things to see and do in Perth at the moment which is just fantastic.

We took Sabina to Sacrilege - which is an inflatable replica Stonehenge bouncy castle in the Supreme Court Garden. I myself was actually pretty excited as I've never ever been on a bouncy castle before. So you can imagined I was like a little kid, bursting with excitement!!

It was a hot day so we decided to go there early in the morning, right after breakfast. Sabina was quite happy running around and exploring the park while we wait for our turns as they only allowed 75 people to be on the bouncy castle at the same time. Luckily, we didn't have to wait too long as each group are only given 8 minutes to be on the bouncy castle.

By the way, luckily my friend told us to bring socks!!! As it was quite a hot day, they were hosing water on the bouncy castle before every session because it can get quite hot and I've heard of people getting blisters from bouncy castle!! Therefore, if you ever go on a bouncy castle, remember to bring a pair of socks!!

When it was finally our turn (Yay!!), Sabina was a little bit afraid in the beginning but she eventually did warm up to it and had a great time bouncing around. It looked easy to be bouncing around but I tell you, I was puffed and tired after a few minutes!!! I am seriously unfit and need to do a bit of exercising soon!! Eeekks!!

As it was such a lovely day, we laze a round in the park afterwards while Sabina continued to explore her surroundings while drinking from her water bottle. She was really fascinated with the leaves and twigs that she found. She was constantly running around with either leaves or twigs in her hands and it was so funny to watch. She was having a blast!!

It made me realised that you don't need big expensive toys to make our kids happy. You might be surprised that sometimes it's the simple things that will bring us the most joy!! Just spending quality family time together is more than enough. When we got home that day, both DH and I were filled with so much happiness and joy. We had such an amazing and wonderful day that we decided we will try to go out for family day and do something together at least once a week or once a fortnight. I am definitely looking forward to our many family days now!!


  1. Oh, she can;t be walking already? Where does the time go? What a great day and I love the bouncing castle. I have never been in one either, I don;t think they were invented when I was little. You are quite right, you can have a lot of fun with mum, dad and some leaves!! Sabina won't remember expensive toys, but she'll remember the fun times she spent with you.

    1. Hi Cindy, yes she's walking already!!! I just told my DH the other day that she's growing too fast!!!
