Family Fun Day at Brimbank

 

Community Fun Day – Station Road, Brimbank Shopping Centre
Rotary Club of Brimbank Central Inc.

After Baby D’s final music lesson for the term in Williamstown and some Saturday household cleaning chores, lunch was a no brainer at the Community Fun Day at a local reserve. Organised by the Rotary Club of Brimbank Central there was entertainment, rides and food from 11am to 9pm so Baby D had an array of colourful distractions to occupy him all afternoon!

Filipino BBQ skewers with rice and a coffee & mamon combo from Randy over at Cafe Rende hit the spot as cultural dancers and an Elvis impersonator took over the stage. Baby D went on his first ride on the hot air balloons and turned bright red on his first round because he was holding breath! He’d been staring at them the minute we arrived so I thought he’d enjoy it but as soon as the balloons gained momentum and height, he started looking a little worried. A quick diversion from tears meant some time in the mini animal farm! I saw a piglet and was immediately sold on going in with my little man – that and the fact that it was free! 😉

More dancing and music showcased some of the local talent in the area and the weather was perfect for an afternoon of outdoor fun. I’m so glad there are plenty of exciting things for Daniel to see because watching his face light up is priceless. What outdoor activities do you get up to on the weekends? 🙂

Mamons are super soft sponge cakes with finely grated cheese – yes you read right, cheese! Filipinos are infamous for adding cheese to desserts lol!! – don’t knock it til you try it. These mamons are so good you need to try them!

Daniel loved the watching the animals at the Animals 2 U enclosure – so many different types of animals that he didn’t know where to start!

A great range of performers!

He totally looked like he wanted to ride the balloons but then when he did, he looked like this… 🙁

Bumped into some mothers group friends! 🙂
