Once upon a time I liked nothing more than a weekend outing to the local shopping centre. Which, I'm a little ashamed to admit, always involved a little arm twisting with my reluctant other half. Since moving out here I feel worlds away from the crowds, the parents rooms, and the multi storey carparks.
When you have this in your backyard, it's not a difficult decision to pack a last minute picnic and head out into the mountains. No arm twisting required. Forget about the grass that needs mowing. Getting away from it all, if even for a few hours, can be just what this family needs.
