A day out at Sovereign Hill with the grandsons.

I was spending the week with my grandsons while their mum and new dad were on a special honeymoon cruising the Great Barrier Reef.
I planned a busy day out with the boys at

We climbed the tower for a great view.
Xavier was petrified and as a bribe for getting to this level he was to get some special lollies.
He did a good job.
Then down underground for a mine tour. Both boys were very brave and followed along well.
I'm sure they had a great time.

We had some free time so the boys tried some gold panning. No luck.
Nicholas did think he found a speck but I am not convinced. They did try hard.

We went on a horse and cart ride around the little street.
Yes, the boys saw the horses do their business. It got a funny reaction.
They sat in the old time scales even though they thought it was a swing.
We saw the soldiers fire a gun. Boy it was loud.

We had a great day, weather, fun and play time. 
Then went home broke and exhausted.

Such a great day out with the boys. Sew nice for them to see how things worked in the past...
What is it with boys that they like poo and farts !!! LOL.

There's something to entertain all ages at Sovereign Hill, I think. But yes, it is easy to go home broke! Looks like you were there on a lovely sunny day.

Guaranteed a good day out there, so much to see and do. Poo is always entertaining for boys isn't it!! Great you can spend time with them.

Looks like you had perfect weather for it Jo. I love Sovereign Hill. If I lived in Ballarat, I would want to be one of those ladies dressed up, sitting in a cottage stitching!
