Lily and Caden are doing a tennis camp this week from 9-11a with TopSpin, the same outfit that they took lessons from before school, but this time down the hill at the TopSpin courts -

Seeing as how we are on school holiday, each of the kids gets a day to be in charge and plan the day. Embracing the birthday holiday sham, we headed into Freo right afterwards to visit the Fremantle Markets (which are usually not open on Mondays). And Monday is Gia's day to be the "Little Girl In Charge" :) Her plan with the markets was to get a picnic lunch to take to the Esplanade play set. So we did just that, stopping to enjoy street performers on the way.

|Gia watched from the comforts of her stroller :)|
She really wanted to ride this riveting ride, as did her brother and sister, which was $5pp - seriously! Aside from the merry-go-round, there was a goofy little clown game where you threw ping-pong balls into the clown's mouth and they would chorale into different number shoots, and a bouncy castle. The genius businessman working the merry-go-round offered to let all kids do two of the three for $20. Deal.
|Cute hair caused by the wind, not the speed of the ride, which I could lap hopping on one foot.|
After a bit of a play...
...Gia convinced her Uncle Randy to take her on the long coveted Ferris-wheel. With those crazy curls and big blue eyes, she takes makes her day to be in charge look effortless - especially where Uncle Randy is involved :) It was a perfect day for the Ferris-wheel. A clear day with the beautiful Perth-blue sky. The views were incredible.

Next stop was out for a coffee at Moore & Moore... Randy and I enjoyed a cuppa while the kids played in the little kiddie area.
|The infamous door that opened when Gia was playing here last week. And yes, I am yelling at the kids in the background '_'|
Then our route home took us back by the markets, and there was another street performer out, so we decided to sit for a bit...
|Great shot of the kid's faces watching the performance.|
|More fire juggling. I think I'll keep my day job. Wait - I don't have one right now! Even better.|
|I am laughing hysterically, as were all passersby, because when Gia turned around she had a big chunk of crepe hanging from her mouth!|
