A Family Day Out At Sovereign Hill: 10 on 10 Photography Circle

Hello! It's the 10th of the month so it's time for some photos.  

This month I'm sharing our family day out at Sovereign Hill, an outdoor museum that re-creates Ballarat's first ten years after the discovery of gold in 1851.  In the few short and chaotic days before Christmas we hit the pause button, put pre-Christmas obligations on hold and took ourselves back in time to the Gold Rush days of our fair city.  It was a really lovely day out - Sovereign Hill is a special place - and it was just what we needed to reconnect as a family and recharge before Christmas hit us full tilt.

It's the 10th of the month so it's photo time.  It has been a busy month and I've had camera troubles so I really thought I would miss this round of our wonderful photo circle.  I had nothing prepared until Monday, the Queen's Birthday Holiday. After two cold and miserable days we were in need of an escape from the house so we set off on the third stage of our exploration of the Yarrowee River Trail with coats and hats, a yellow scooter for Mr 3, a football for Mr 6, a bottle of water and a banana each for sustenance.
