So we met up and split into groups - boys went to the Tim Burton Exhibiton and the girls went to ABBA World!!!! We couldn't wait to get in! Oh the costumes! The Arrival helicopter! The Karaoke (I rocked) then we got on stage and our dutiful daughters applauded and screamed....IT WAS SO MUCH FUN AAAAHHHHH! Then the gift shop! My sister went absolutely bonkers and spent a small fortune, I was a bit more conservative and bought a bag and a t-shirt and Martha and her cousin Olivia scammed a teddy wearing ABBA t-shirts each.
Unfortunately Jo and I only got a few hours of Sisterly ABBA goodness before she had to return to in-law duty. It was a great morning and the cousins had a ball together. After parting my kids and I had a wander up and down some arcades that Melbourne is famous for, Angus our young artist; loved the street art in alleys. Then it happened, I found them! The shoes! The shoes I have been dreaming of!!
But that's another post I will save for tomorrow!
