Christmas in Melbourne

The Fella had an excursion with Joey Scouts to the city this week to see the Myer windows. (Myer is a department store that decorates its window with a theme each Christmas)
The program went something like this:
*Take the train into the city
*Walk to the City Square to post letters to Santa
*Go see the Myer windows*Mc Donald's for Dinner
*Then take the train home and on the way practice Christmas Carols for the concert they will give to the elderly next week.

It was a pretty great excursion. The Fella's Scout leaders are a wonderfully dedicated bunch who are so great with this group of boys and two girls. The Fella just loves going. I took The Angel too, who was thrilled because she 1. Got to come and 2. Had a friend who was also a sibling to hang out with.
Some memories I will take with me are:
A large group of excited 6-8 year olds weaving in and out of all the 'suits' excitedly while running along the city streets.
The sticky floor at McDonald's and the sucking noise that came form my feet as I walked to find a seat.
The look on the passengers faces on the train when the bunch of little kids bust enthusiastically into 'Jingle Bells" on the train......... in November.

....... Ahhh Christmas................
