No running but plenty of R.I.C.E when I got back from our outing. My ankle does feel a little better though.
Rouse Hill House and Farm
This morning we headed out to Rouse Hill House and Farm for A Peachy Picnic, which is a school holiday program that the Sydney Living Museums put on. I was a little hesitant about how T2 would go at a structured holiday program at a historic site but he had a marvellous time, in fact we all did. My poor husband and eldest had to carry everything as I was hobbling around.

The photo above is from a govt website as the school holiday program took place outside and in the alcove of the house. I'll have to return for a look inside.

|It was a picture perfect day|
|First up was 'horse riding'|
then the good old sack race
|T2 needed a little help|
|Despite their best efforts they lost the tug o war|
|Three legged race - I love this photo|
|Our leader Karina was great with the kids|
After the games it was time to have a picnic in the baskets supplied - there were real crockery teapots and teacups (as well as unbreakable cups). As a serious tea drinker I was very pleased with tea leaves and a strainer! Karina supplied everyone with peaches and wedding cake! This is because the kids who grew up in the house in the 1940s used to sell peaches on Windsor Road and their mother used to bake Wedding Cakes - I must say it was delicious and I was so hungry I forgot to take a photo of it. While we had our picnic Karina read the story Beauty and The Beast and then she rehearsed the kids to act out the story and dress up. T1 and my eldest enjoyed it and T2 joined in for part of it and really enjoyed it too.
|Crockery and tea leaves - tick!|
|This was a separate house where the grandchildren grew up - its so small.|
