Cherry and Me visit NGV – Andy Warhol + Ai Weiwei

It’s not often that Cherry and Me have the entire day to ourselves. Since she’s graduated from senior kinder, we’ve been making the most of our time together before we all head up to our holiday house for the Summer holidays.

This week, we’ve splashed in the Children’s Gardens at The Royal Botanic Gardens, dropped into our favourite cafe’s and local shops, caught up with friends and, best of all, explored the latest exhibitions at The National Gallery of Victoria.

Then we dropped in to The Children’s Exhibition Space, where Cherry met up with her best friend, Flora!
