As memories of sunny summer slowly fade away, we're lucky that winter has been quite mild so far. At the St Kilda boat ramp there is still plenty of activity, and the recently renovated St Kilda adventure playground continues to attract large crowds of families to enjoy all the activities for kids.
With the federal election campaign under way, we're all finding ourselves the prey of a pack of politicians on a long and arduous election trail. Election signs are everywhere while smiling senators and mooning MP's litter the evening news bulletins. Luckily there are still plenty of fun things to do if you hunt through what's on in Adelaide, although in winter you may need to try harder.

Consuming food and wine are among the most popular topics on Weekend Notes, and free things to do in Adelaide like Museum Bites and Science in the Pub are natural choices for family fun. Both take place on June 3.
There are loads of fun things to do in June if you're prepared to open your wallet. The Magic X Wine show will be a magical mind reading moment on June 4, or have Dinner with a Scientist for charity on the 9th. For family fun for kids head to Disney on Ice which is in Adelaide from June 10-13.
The Sea and Vines festival in McLaren Vale is the perfect place to sample premium food and wine together. If you can still find accommodation it would make an awesome weekend away, finishing up with the Vale Market. Otherwise enjoy Dinner in the Dark at the National Wine Centre, but it will set you back $165.

Unfortunately my dogs refuse to stay inside for too long, so I need to take them to a new dog park occasionally. The Jo Gapper Dog Park in Hillbank is next on their list, with a bonus park for small dogs too.
