The Light in Winter

Ever since I was little I have loved lights. My parents were regularly loading us into the car and driving up high hills to show me the city lights. May go some way to explaining my love of sparkly shiny things ;)

This weekend we decided to take the kids to Federation Square to see The Light in Winter. A month long event with different activites on daily.

On the way we got to take in a personal favourite of mine, the ferris wheel at Birrarung Marr which is lit up beautifully at night.

While we waited for the sun to set we enjoyed a hot chocolate and the little man did some exploring.

The centre piece of the Light in Winter is called Solar Equation, apparently people can use their iPhones or other iDevice to alter the patterns on the surface, we were content just to view it as other people did the techo stuff.

Last night there was also a Mexican Salute with music and dancing, however it was a bit hard to photgraph with our little cannon point and shoot.

It was a nice night out, and we were home in time to put the kids to bed by 8:30pm!
