Oh how I wish I was still relaxing down south! It was such a gorgeous weekend and I’ve been enjoying reliving it a little through our photos! 
On the saturday we had a little bit of a late start, then decided to head into Maragret River but on the drive from Yallingup down to Margs we decided to stop somewhere for an early lunch. So many people had recommended the Cheeky Monkey Brewery so we decided to make that our lunch spot and we were SO glad we did!

We loved this place as soon as we walked in. It’s beautifully decorated and so light and airy inside. 

A little advice – make a booking even if you’re arriving right on kitchen opening time like we did!!! It gets FULL and luckily they had 3 tables that weren’t booked. Next time I’ll book though just to make sure we don’t miss out!

And you just can’t beat this view while you’re having lunch – can you!?

But wait – there is a HUGE playground for your kiddos here. Fully enclosed. Thank you Cheeky Monkey – for thinking of the parents with kids!!
We definitely enjoyed our lunch experience here and the food was delicious! We were a bit sad we weren’t down south an extra day or so as we would have loved to come back for another lunch and play before heading back home.

We also spent a morning at the Country Life Animal Farm. 
The kids really enjoyed getting up close with some of the animals and feeding them from their bucket of carrots!
There were cows and ponies.
And cheeky alpacas {they really do like to spit!} and some sheep.
And LOTS of bunnies, guinea pigs and chickens!

And no little holiday is complete with out a stop at an ice cream shoppe! Even if it’s winter and cold outside! Haha.
We decided to stop at Millers Ice Cream Farm Cafe. 
Not only was there lots of really really delicious ice cream –  made from fresh milk from their own dairy cows…
But there is a playground. Thank you again for thinking of parents with kids! You can also get a nice hot coffee here and sit at the many little picnic tables while your kids run around and play. Or best of both worlds have an affogato {coffee and ice cream!}

AND you can try your hand at milking a cow :o}

We had such a lovely time and I can’t wait for another opportunity to head down south again. I really love these places that make it easy to take our kiddos out and allow them an enjoyable time, too!
