JULY 2019 June 2019


Hi & welcome to our July Issue!! Here we are at another school holidays - I feel like these ones have come around so fast! The boys don’t think so though, they believe they take “foreverrrr” (insert groaning voices!) With all of them at school now I really do look forward to the break and spending time together. We’re planning on a visit to Sydney to see my sister and their cousins in the first week. Just me and the boys - driving to Sydney - how hard could it be? They all want to take the dog Louie too but I think I might have to draw the line there! School holidays usually means lots of money spent on keeping the kids entertained but we’re so lucky with what’s on around us that’s either free or low cost. You should check out the local library for details of the activities they have scheduled for the two weeks. Greensborough Plaza has a Winter Wonderland with a Ice Skating Rink open daily from 10am until 3pm plus other activities. In Bundoora at Inflatable World you can book in your child for a 3 hour program for only $25! They have a café there too! At the Ivanhoe Hotel every Sunday (12pm - 3pm) is Family Funday with free kids entertainment, half price kids meals & free kids desserts - winning!! Plus we’re spoilt with the amount of playgrounds we have locally if you want to get them outside to burn off some energy. This month we reviewed Malahang Reserve in Heidelberg West. It’s such a fantastic playground with plenty to do for everyone - play equipment, basketball court, skate park, plenty of seating area undercover and BBQ’s. You can check out our review on page 10 in “Out and About”. Just remember pack a towel incase it’s been raining to wipe down any wet equipment or to dry off if it rains. Do you have a park you like to visit that we haven’t been to yet? We would love to hear from you - send us an email or message us through our Facebook page. As always I hope you enjoy this months magazine and I wish you and your family a fun filled July!!
