Last night we took the girls to the Winter Solstice party at the Collingwood Childrens Farm. It wasn't an overall success.
The place was absolutely rammed, take a normal market Saturday and multiply by 5! Parking was a nightmare, we were meeting friends there and in the end didn't even find each other. The queues for food and drink were crazy and they ran out before we reached the front.
I'm sounding miserable I know, but when you get organised with the kids and it doesn't work out, so frustrating. The bonfire was amazing though - the highlight by far. Perhaps next year we'll have our own at home and get the cozy feel we were looking for - with a much smaller fire.
