Wentworth Common

Went to pick up chicken coop today, only due to a small size misunderstanding it turned out we could only fit it in the car if we left the kids behind.  We were fine with that, but the chirpy fellow at the warehouse was convinced we were being amusing.


We spent the rest of the day at Wentworth Common.  This is a park area that's part of the Olympic stadium complex at Homebush.  We drove past the Bicentennial Park playground first, but it was heaving, so we continued until we found the Common, and there we had the whole wonderful adventure playground practially to ourselves.

There was a great sandpit which had taps and a wet area where you could play streams / rivers / dam-bursting-and-drowning-all-the-poor-sleeping-people.

And a slide - it was difficult for the kids to get up there, but once they did (with hubby's help) they were so pleased with themselves.

And a we climbed the hill (called the Bay Marker) -

It has a spiral pathway up it - perfect for bikes ridden by pre-teens intent on mowing down pedestrians - and looked at the view from the top, and had a rest.

Miss Five took that photo - how excruciatingly talented is she???  Also, I have a white hat on, its not a halo, just in case you were wondering.

Hmm, I wonder if our local Warehouse would like to acquire two small children of mine? Hahaha
