We headed down yesterday morning and decided to go to Perisher - it's a nice, wide open space where there's plenty of room for little tackers to muck about in the snow without being run over by errant skiers or maniac borders!The other fun part of the day is catching the Skitube up to the slopes and back again. It's a very big adventure for someone who will be three in one month's time!
We hired some pants and some apres boots for Rom - she already had her Dora parka and gloves - so she'd be nice and warm and dry, and headed out into a glorious day of blue skies and sunshine and snow, snow, snow. (Okay, for you people in the US and Europe, this looks pretty patchy, but for here it's not too bad!)Romily had a great time, learning how to make snowballs and throw them at mummy and daddy, how to walk in the snow (sometimes easy, sometimes hard, sometimes too hard and daddy had to carry her), and not to eat it!After a couple of hours she was getting pretty tired and so was I! With an extra 10kg on board I kept sinking into the snow - it's hard work when you're nearly 8 months pregnant! We retired to the shops for a hot chocolate and a spot of shopping, before heading back down through the tunnel on the train. A leiusurely drive home, with a comfort stop in Cooma, and we were home by about 7.30pm last night.
A long day, but one that was well worth it :)
I made some fleece 'snow' pants for Rom to wear there and back. I had some pink and white fleece left over from a bunny I made her when she was a newborn, and that did the trick...I made the leg panels out of alternating colours - she liked them!--------------------
Last but not least, here's the applique top I made for Rom, using the strawberry fabric again - I promised to make her something when she spotted this fabric when I was putting Strawberries & Cream together. She liked this too. It's so gratifying when your daughter actually wants to wear the clothes you make her...that should last for another couple of years at least (I hope!).
