Museum of Fire - Penrith NSW

If you stopped by last week, you already know that we celebrated William's 3rd birthday and had a Fireman Sam themed party :) 
As an extra treat, the next day we drove out to Penrith (nearly 2 hours away!) to visit the Museum of Fire. Charlotte is also a huge Fireman Sam fan so I thought it would be a fun day out. It also happened to be Fathers Day, so it was nice to do something just the 4 of us.

First I want to share William's 3rd birthday 20 Questions! I asked Charlotte the same questions on her 5th birthday. The answers are all his, lol.

I love how he says 'Newsmeum' hehe. He obviously enjoyed the day!

They had the most awesome fire engine themed playground outside, the kids had an absolute blast on the equipment!

and  then, she {snapped}
 
They were both so brave and climber right out to the end.



I kept trying to get a picture of them sliding together but somebody kept shooting down before her little brother got to the top ;)

Such concentration! 

Very cool slide!
William took a bit of a tumble down the ladder up to the top of one of the structures, he landed with a leg either side of a rung, ouch! Then the poor thing did it again! 
He was screaming "Again! Again! Again! My bottom is hurt again!" :(
One of the fireman must have seen what happened because he came running over with an ice block to make him better. And one for big sister too of course! 
I love this picture of my babies :)

I had a terrible time with red colour casts on everything from the plastic fire hats!

HA!




Of course we actually did stuff IN the museum as well, lol but it was a lot harder to get pictures in there because there wasn't much to bounce my flash off!
They had the best time in the kids area! There were all sorts of activities, fire engines to climb in and even gear to try on. Plus Fireman Sam was playing on the TV!
HOw cute are my kids, they wore their own little fire hats and bought all their Fireman Sam toys in with them :)

All in all it was a great day, definitely worth the drive out there! (Except for maybe William's "Where is da place? Where is da place? Where is da place? hehe)

Better in BulkThanks for stopping by!

These are such fabulous pictures; looks like such a fun day for the kids! That slide has to be one of the biggest ones I've seen! Don't you just hate color casts? I take lots of pictures of my little one in her red wagon which also has a red roof and casts all sorts of red and orange on her face all the time. I spend so much time trying to remove it in my processing (it's a pain really). Absolutely love your perspective in all these shots! My favorite is the one of him coming down that slide!

I had fun choosing this particular painting online that now hangs in my downtown office, from Wahooart.com, who sells canvas prints of art masterpieces. While the original is treasured in some art museum in England, my print http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/Opra/BRUE-8LHS4U, of this painting by Edward Burne-Jones is very much appreciated by my staff and clients. The print quality is really excellent.
