It’s been ages since our last family day, we had one back in February, for Valentines, but I didn’t manage to tell you about it.
Saturday the 12th of June was Family Plane Day.Â We had a very busy day with planes from breakfast to dinner.
The children were greeted with the following when they got up out of bed…
And a little ‘light’ decoration (supposed to be clouds and the ribbon is blue for sky, just in case you weren’t sure!)
We packed our suitcase and hand-luggage…
Watched an emergency procedure video…
Handed out our boarding passes…
And we were off in our car-plane (or is that plane-car)!
First destination a nice stretch of tree-less grass by the river where we unpacked our suitcase,
munched on morning tea,
made rubber-band planes
dodgy $2 ones, that ended up quite wonky… but cute none the less.
and made an attempt at flying a plane-kite (or is that kite-plane?).
Time to reboard our road-craft and head to the next point on our itinerary.
Elisha was so excited.Â I was so surprised.Â He has been here once before.Â Three and a half years ago when he was two and a half.Â Yet as soon as we pulled into the driveway he knew where we were going.
We stopped for a bite to eat before heading in.
The main attraction in the museum is this beauty, a Lancaster.Â It is so BIG.
A rest was required by several of the passengers, so a brief home stop-over was made.
Later in the afternoon we went to Jandakot Airport.Â This has been a favourite spot of ours to visit for a long time.Â I’m so glad it was recommended to me and that it is not too far from home.
Our day was nearly done, but I had one more easy idea, Brett raced off to the video shop and we watched Chitty Chitty Bang Bang while eating dinner.
And that, my friends, was Plane Day!
