The simple things in life

One of the best things about bringing up kids in Brisbane, is that you don't have to spend a lot of money to have a good time.
Or in some cases, any money.
Here are some of our favourite things to do, without emptying the wallet:

Feeding the ducks and turtles at Forest Lake after school on a warm Autumn afternoon
Taking time to play in a local playground
Exploring a beach - the rocks, shells, crabs, tiny fish, and pelicans. Here we are at Shorncliffe

There are fairies in the bottom of our garden ...

Readers, what do you like to do that doesn't cost the earth?

So true and kids don't care how much you spend! :D

Yes ... My two are at the age where the biggest gift I can give them is time! That isn't to say they wouldn't love a wii, pay TV or even a DVD player that actually works, but they just love hanging out with me, which is fab.
