Parks

One of the things that we're enjoying in Australia is the existence of wonderful parks that are full of great things for children to do.

It seems to be quite common here for people to meet and entertain in parks -- many people do it instead of entertaining at home. There are 'barbie' facilities -- a flat surface heated with gas -- that you can use for free. Many of the areas are fairly well shaded and there is great equipment for the kids to play on.

I headed out to Wynnum at the weekend. It's on the bay and has a great park where the kids and I had a picnic and they had a wonderful time playing.

There is the jungle gym, whales that squirt water (Kai's favourite) and a rope type of climbing structure (Slade's favourite).
