After a morning of slaving over post-Christmas toy-sorting and culling we headed out to enjoy the day with a picnic lunch and a hike. Tim drank his tea up too fast, but Matilda was generous and shared her big milk.
On our way to the trailhead we stopped to goof in the old zoo cages for a bit.
This kind of gives you a sense of our destination, although you can't really see the whole rock formation. It looks like a big hive and is called Bee Rock.
I can't resist a holding hands photo.
The park is so pretty this time of year, all green and lush. It felt amazingly good to be healthy and outdoors in beautiful weather, getting exercise.
Matilda leads the charge up to the top of Bee Rock.
Pretty good views if you can look past the fencing.
Good rock crannies for snacking, too!
We also discovered this huge dirt pile and it proved to be irresistible. The kids went crazy sliding down the pile.
