Kings Park Treetop Walk….A Photo Journey

Through the course of my new blogging hobby I have come across a fit mother of two who blogs over at Fit Mother Hubbard.  One of my favourite things that she is doing is to have a family active day on a Saturday or Sunday for all of 2014.  You can read about it in this link.  Such a small thing, but such a great way to make fitness a priority but also something that is fun and just part of family life!  I try to incorporate family fitness fun into our everyday life but it got me thinking whether I do commit to this as much as I could?  Could I make sure that our family participates in a family active day once a week for a whole year?  I am going to give it a crack and I hope a few of you will join me too.

Tying in with this goal was the Kings Park Tree Top Walk that I have been wanting to do with the kids which is on my current hitlist.  Hubby was away this weekend and the kids and I were in need of an outing before it ended in tears from one or all of us!!  I only had my eldest son’s ipod as I forgot to grab the memory card for the camera before I left the house….but here is our Sunday family active day!

It is Spring Festival at Kings Park which I had temporarily forgotten until there were no parking spots to be found.  We ended up over the other side of the park and a little more of a hike and adjustment in plans.  Kids were thrilled...whinge, whinge, moan, moan.

After a hike up and over the hill we made it to the tree top suspension bridge.  Spectacular views.

It is very difficult to fit us all in for a selfie.

There is something about a smooth green hill that just asks for kids to roll down it!

Sometimes I had to carry the youngest....or the two scooters.....or both.  Kids were a little over the walk (just under 2km there and 2km back) so had to resort to good old fashioned bribery in the form of ice cream to get them home.

Lots of people out and about in Kings Park today...fancy some tightrope walking?

Spring in Western Australia with all the wildflowers is just stunning!

  1. Oh I just love this. You guys look like you had the best day. Isn’t it funny how when the kids are going a little crazy indoors, an outdoor activity can make the world of difference. Thanks so much for sharing 🙂 x
