Our Melbourne adventure (pt 1)

Originally the plan was for us to go to Melbourne for the weekend and I’d attend the digital parents Conference and we’d come home on the Sunday. We sat down and had a thought about and thought about what we’d like to do and decided to make it a bit longer holiday for the whole family. And it was miss K’s first plane trip.

As per usual for me I had all the details planned and packing lists created using a couple of useful apps (but that’s another post) so we were all set when it came time to leave on the Thursday.

I was pretty much all packed and ready to go on Tuesday night! Wednesday saw us catching up on a few last minute things including the hairdresser for me, dropping off our car to get fixed & doing my nails.

After the usual morning routine, Mum picked us up & we headed off to the airport. Miss K had a lovely time watching the planes come in and leave. Our flight ended up being delayed by about 20 mins but it was no biggie.
So all was good up until we got on the plane and Miss K didn’t want to sit in her seat! There was lots of tears and “mummy, knee”. The Jetstar staff were lovely and gave me an belt extension. Things were ok after that as she had a feed and promptly fell asleep and slept the whole flight until just before we landed!

The original plan was to get the Skybus to the CBD then the train to South Yarra. We ended up getting a direct to hotel shuttle for about the same price and it didn’t involve carrying luggage around. Always a good thing.
We got to where we’re staying about 6 so chucked the bags in the room then went for a wander to find some food. Our meal for the evening was from a lovely little fish & chip shop – Watergrill. If you are ever in South Yarra check them out. Hubby had a piece of flake and chips (which Miss K shared) and I had a grilled chicken pita. YUMMO!

We had a quiet night in watching the footy and trying to get an excited little girl off to bed. She ended up going when we did.
