Camping at Healesville

We headed to Healesville this weekend and I’m glad to report the weather was completely the opposite of our last camping trip – approx 34 degrees! It’s funny how you forget to factor in occupying 2 toddlers in the time it takes to pitch a tent….a good hour was spent and its actually really hard work, especially in the sun. We explored the campsite which had a great children’s park and swimming pool – both Ella and Charlie were reluctant to come out of the water. Surprisingly they both went to bed fairly easily and Alan & I enjoyed a glass of wine with visits from the local residents, possums. These guys were tame enough to eat crackers from our hands.

Once we packed up on Sunday morning we headed to Healesville Animal Sanctuary. Ella loves to see the animals and Charlie is just starting to appreciate them (although everything says ‘woof woof’ at the moment). All the fresh air and walking around took its toll and we had 2 sleeping babies on the car journey home.

Charlie kept befriending people and wandering off
