Yum Cha, Fountains, Sharks and Chocolate...

Yesterday we had an amazing day.
Two of our good friends from our old area came down to Sydney for the weekend and we were lucky enough to squeeze in a day full of fun with them.
I only wish I had taken our camera so better than phone snaps could have been taken.
Silly baby brain makes me forget things!
We started off by having a gigantic delicious lunch at the Marigold Yum Cha, followed by a quick shop across the road where we discovered a dollar store with too many goodies! I couldnt risk this really cute wall sticker set for only $3.

After a bit of retail therapy (and a messy nappy changing experience in the pram involving wee everywhere!) we slowly walked down to Sydney Harbour. It was a warm day and as we approached the water fountains we saw parents with children swimming, splashing and taking advantage of the cool water.
So we decided to do the same.
We dipped our feet in.
Then jumped right in, clothed and all.
The water was just about knee depth and the sweet coolness was so refreshing.
We stepped under the water jets and splashed around.
Eve came in with us though was a little scared at going in the water and preferred to sit on the edge and dangle her feet in.

(Just a little bit sunburnt by this stage!)

We finally dragged ourselves out of the water and headed off to the next stop....
The Maritime Museum.
Our friends had found out there was a free shark exhibit and well, we all like free things so we dove on in.
It was fascinating, so many teeth and terrifying facts and stories of attacks.
Us girls were more visual, don't read, lets walk and talk and explore while the boys slowly walked behind, reading every plaque.

The most surprising thing was that Eve managed the whole time in the pram and only fussed towards the end. We checked the time and somehow it was 4:35pm already! Time really does fly when you are having fun.
We decided to quickly head on over to our final destination....
The Lindt Chocolate Cafe.
Mmmmmm YUMMY!
I should have taken a photo of the food while it lasted.... But that wasn't long.
I ordered profiteroles and the hubby had an iced mocha.
The profiteroles were chocolate custard heaven. The small serving was not enough.
I explored inside the shop where they have so many more flavours than I have ever seen before. I went a little crazy and bought myself one cookies and cream ball.... For $1.25!
I can't say if it was good or not as it still sits in the fridge waiting......
Then it came time to say goodbye, find our car and drag our very tired selves home.
Waiting for the next adventure.....
