Raise your arms Maurice! It’s more fun when you raise your arms like this!

If you’ve got kids or seen Madagascar 2 then you get the title ha ha!

There is a fun day event that lasts 4 days and happens every year at the Alexandra Raceway and it’s completely free!!!. I find out about it every year too late and always think ah well next year. Found out about it this year on opening day at 8.30am. “GET DRESSED! GET SHOES! WE’RE GOING OUT IN 15 MINUTES!”

Got there just after 9am and off we headed, small crowd, no queues pretty much and especially not for the rides my boys wanted to do. The bigger two braved the Ferris Wheel, Crazy circus fun house, big bouncy slide and climb. All four of us went on the rockin’ tugboat ride. Then it started to rain – heavy! Bad mummy didn’t grab the umbrella out the car or bring any jackets oops! So we ran to the marquee and they waited patiently while I went and grabbed a bag of hot mini donuts. Another mad dash back to the car and home for a movie day.


Sunday morning we were spontaneous again and all five of us went this time. Did all the same rides as last time and more. Teacups this time, and I was so excited that Hunter and Peyton went on the sizzler with me as that is pretty intense for kids who have never been on a fast or slightly scary ride before. We all went on the rockin tugboat again and I got them to raise their arms (except Hunter his BFF was the bar to hold on too). None of them were keen for the one that went up in the sky though! Ah well next year!

Best mornings ever!
