what did you get up to?


a morning in the city.

we love going to the city. it is by far one of our favourite family outings. we’re lucky that we have family who live in the centre of sydney so we frequent it loads. the other morning, with sick kids in tow, we decided to go for a coffee in the city. sometimes just going for a coffee is a mission for us, so it seemed totally achievable. we wanted to coffee in miller’s point but there was not much open early in the morning so we walked down to the rocks and circular quay. it was b-e-a-utiful. such incredible architecture, gorgeous little alleyways, and of course, the spectacular side of sydney – the opera house and harbour bridge.

we were pleasantly surprised to discover that the MCA has opened it’s new wing. yippee ! of course we just had to pop in and have a look. wow ! it is awesome. the art is (as usual) inspiring, entry is free (as usual), the lift is fully glass (so as not to lose any of the view), the building is fresh & best of all they have a kids art section which provides a ‘hands on’ experience. yes ! we were winning that morning.

one of my favourite artworks in this exhibition is ‘the lover circles his own heart’, 1993, by hossein valamanesh. combined with le carnaval des animaux by french composer camille saint-saens this little video we made makes me smile.

Here are some more pics from our little (unexpected) adventure.
