Today our mission was to head to the Scholastic Book Warehouse sale.
The book warehouse was very close to Colmslie Beach Reserve so we took the opportunity to go exploring.
This park is right next to the Brisbane River which begged us to get closer.
However we were torn between the shore and the sky. You see, this park is not far from the airport so every few minutes a plane flies low over the top of you. Mums of boys will understand that this is a huge thrill.
If you aren’t deterred by these signs…
there is a flight of steps down to the riverside and a short boardwalk.
The boys were a little in awe at being quite so close to the river.
We could have sat admiring the river activity for ages.
It was such a beautiful quiet spot
…in between the plane flyovers of course!
This playground was a winner with my little men.
Their imagination was working overtime.
I had to encourage the boys to climb into the shipwreck though. It looked dull from the outside
…but, once inside, the boys discovered that it was a musical boat! They were intrigued and delighted.
There is so much attention to detail in this playground
and lots of surprises.
Even the plants tickle the senses.
Brayden couldn’t stop saying, “This park is so much fun!!” over and over again.
Oh, there goes yet another plane…hehehe
My little men
had a truly wonderful time.
They bought home a hodge podge of colourful nature finds
and I bought home a big bundle of books.
Ahhh, the perfect day 🙂
