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!
