Dad and Daughter Time

Me and little e have all of Saturday on our own, as E is going to a playgroup seminar thing. I am trying to think of something interesting (yet manageable) that we could do, rather than just sit around at home all day.

I am not very adventurous when I am on my own with her, but I reckon I should try more things-- after all, I want to be a fun Dad, not a hesitant, boring one.

A lot will depend on whether we have the car or not, but any ideas??

how about the aquarium?
little e LOVED the fish tank at Steeles house.
a few times I saw her convince master C to climb up with her to have a peer in... :)

Thanks L, that's a good idea..

I know Sophia is organising a trip to Cockatoo Is to see the biannale - involves a boat trip which would be fun for little e, but I suspect the art would be more for you than her!!

Thanks Aimee-- that's a good idea too. Sounds kinda ambitious!

I am, and you and little e are welcome to come. Sam has invited a male friend too, so you won't be amongst a gaggle of girls either! Let me know if you want details.

Ben McLaughlin said...

Hi Soph-- thanks, I will definately keep that in mind:)

You are always welcome on our side of the world... we could take you on a world wind tour of every period home that has been recently used for any Jane Austen novel... and then we could give you tea!

Yeah, Cockatoo Island might be a bit ambitious, how about England instead! Sounds good Kate-- can you get me home in time for little e's arvo nap?
