Day Trip

We decided to escape the dreaded heat in our hometown and made the 1.5h journey to Ballarat and visited Sovereign Hill. Only 1 of our 3 kids still at home wanted to come so L got to spend quality time with Mum and Dad!

L was also the only one of our 4 kids who hadn't been yet, and boy did he enjoy himself!! He had no luck panning for gold though!

J thought he could do with a new hat (no Sweety, that one!)

To my delight it was soo much cooler in Ballarat! We had a wonderful day exploring the Goldfields in the 1850! I bought a sampler to embroider and a cook book with recipes from the 1800s. May have to try some of those!

Love the hat! Sounds like a good day, especially when you can escape the heat!

Hi Jazy, thanks for your visit today! The pattern with the circles is called Autumn Pennies, and it's in the book "Simple Seasons" by Kim Diehl. GREAT book!
