We are all pretty exhausted after a full day at Upper Clements Park yesterday. The small theme park is in a beautiful setting about an hours drive away. The most scary ride being an old wooden roller coaster, but my (not so little) girls 'still' enjoy visiting once a year. We had a picnic lunch in the surrounding apple orchard and did quite a bit of walking around the park. Included is an animal area, where some indiginious animals were featured, black bear, kayote, racoon etc. The black bear feeding time was at 3pm, we managed to catch it at the right time and found it quite entertaining. They actually sit at a picnic table and munch on oat biscuits fruit and honey!

My Mum and I braved the rickety wooden roller coaster (just once) and a couple of other rides which were fun, but a little jolting!Jemma and Amber on the carousel
At the end of the day our next door neighbours' Wayne and Rhonda popped over for drinks with their two children and were able to meet my folks before they left.
