Auntie Mhairi & I took the kids to the Australian Open Tennis this afternoon. We purchased ground passes which gives access to Margaret Court Arena and all other side courts. We spent a lot of time in Garden Square watching on the big screen and keeping an eye on the kids who kept going in opposite directions. Ella & Charlie could be bribed to sit still for a while with ice cream but Ruby & Poppy had other ideas. Alan joined us later in the afternoon and he took Ella & Charlie to watch some of the juniors matches. We headed home before the Federer v Hewitt match because little people were getting too tired (as was I having been out of the house since 9 am) and watched it on TV instead.
