Drag boat racing family day

All the males in my husband's family love going to the drag boat races once a month during the racing season. This was the first time that our 3 year old son went to the races. We made sure that he had ear muffs, as the loud noises the boats make often scares young children. Once Joshua got used to the boats he loved it.
The atmosphere at the races is very different to what I originally expected. There is rock music from the 90s blaring out of the speakers and hot food vans everywhere!

My son's favourite race was when 6 boats raced instead of the normal 2 boats.

We are looking forward to the next drag boat racing season, as Joshua will be able to show his little brother around.

Family trip to Melbourne Aquarium

Recently our family went to the Melbourne Aquarium when we stayed in the city for the weekend. We loved seeing all the different tanks that contained a variety of animals from deep sea starfish to sharks and stingrays.

 The first area that we went to was set up like rock pools and you were able to touch and feel the sea creatures. The boys loved being able to see and feel the sea animals.

 Then we saw many different types of crabs and sea spiders.
Later on you were able to go to an educational room that had lots of children's activities. Joshua's favourite was colouring in the sea creatures.

  The sting rays and sharks up close.
 Joshua loved the sharks!

 The aquarium even had tanks that contained turtles from fresh water and estuary environments. The turtles were very cute!

 Lastly we saw the Antarctic penguin enclosure. Joshua loved seeing the penguins and remembered seeing the penguins at zoo.
