The Aquarium and back

Yesterday we went to the Sydney Aquarium.  As we left, Mollie insisted that we  buy the photo that they take of you as you walk in.   Funny thing is that I think Mom and I look okay in this photo.  Mollie looks scared, and Will looks like he's trying to escape.

Kids had a great time and enjoyed their rides on public transport (ferry, monorail and train).    I have to admit I've become a bit of a suburb dweller and didn't see where to stick the ticket at the gates for the train.  OMG totally embarrassing!   I will just claim that it was at the end of the day when my brain capacity was greatly diminshed by the over-stimulation.  The day's adventure was too much for my introvert self.   

Today we went to the toy store for my mom to buy Will a birthday gift, and we went to look at outdoor furniture.

Tomorrow night Mom and I are off to see Wicked.  We were given three tickets for my birthday.  One is for Mollie, but I am not convinced that she will like it and more importantly I am concerned that she will be frightened by aspects of it.  She scares easily.   Anyone seen Wicked?  Do you think Mollie would like it and would it be appropriate for a 7 year old?   Not sure if I am looking forward to trekking into the city again.  I'm not really a fan of musicals.

Great photo! Although I do think Will probably has the right idea in trying to run away LOL

Ok, I am taking Moo to Wicked. Just had a phone call from our friends who've seen Wicked and have a daughter that is Moo's age (Moo's best friend's parents). They said they thought Moo would be fine.
