We celebrated a birthday in October and I made this lemon yoghurt bundt from Donna Hay. It was beautiful and came out really well the first time. I enjoyed it so much I made it again.
However, the second time I kinda winged it with the ingredients I had at home. I didn't have enough lemons and the icing wasn't as thick as I used different measurements. Still it was lovely but although a bit dry after a few days in the fridge. Anyway, it's a great recipe if you stick to the measurements! I love how it doesn't use any butter, just flour, oil and eggs.
Anyway, we didn't pay for rides and it was sprinkling a little. We are in Spring down here and the weather goes up and down. One day hot and one day cold. I got the kids to participate in the fun and free sport activities like shooting a netball hoop and got a few free water bottles out of it as part of the "Make Healthy Normal' stand. You know you can never have too many and they're pretty sturdy ones too. There was a Silent disco and some stage shows but we missed out on the ones we wanted to see. I liked having the music around though. It gave the place a good vibe.
Kids got tired and bored after lunch and wanted to go home so we stayed a little bit longer and then went home. I don't think I would pay for it next year. I don't think it was worth it for my kids. I'm sure everyone else may have enjoyed it and getting the tickets early is much better.
We met up with school friends on the weekend and flew kites in the park. It was nice. I don't normally have time to do this stuff but sometimes you just gotta make time. You know??
