After church and our monthly church lunch we decided to have a family fun afternoon. We were going to go into the city on the train, but the children were not enthusiastic about that idea, so instead we went somewhere I have been wanting to go for quite awhile.
Elizabeth Farm was originally the home of John and Elizabeth Macarthur, famous for their merino wool (although it seems they may have promoted themselves somewhat more than was really justified). The oldest part of the house was built in 1793 and it has been largely unchanged since 1830. Tim had already been here on a school excursion and Ben is coming here later this year, so they were both quite excited to go.
