You couldn't wipe the smiles off their faces.
Cousins Taris Roussac, 4, and Tyson Leonard, 5, were thrilled to be hanging out at the Warrnambool Skate Park again on Thursday.
The park was re-opened under step three of the state government's coronavirus pandemic roadmap.
Most outdoor sport facilities were closed during stage three restrictions which lasted from August 5 to September 13 in regional Victoria.
Taris was counting down the days until 'Dan the man' (Premier Daniel Andrews) gave the green light.
Tyson would look to see if the closed sign was still there whenever his family drove past the skate bowl.
As soon as her heard of the sign being taken down he told his mum, Nicole Brown, they needed to invite Taris to the skate park.
So it was no surprise they were among the first there with their scooters.
The boys said they felt sad when the park closed and were stoked to hear it was open again. They'd normally go once or twice a week.
They said the best thing about going to the skate park was they got to hang out and do tricks together.
Taris' mum, Susan Brown, was thrilled to see them enjoying themselves at the bowl.
"He missed it. He's a very active, outdoor child so not having the skate park open was a countdown until it was re-opening," she said.
"And the first day it's open, we're back here."
Brown said the skate park was a favourite spot on their usual walk.
"It's a great place and I've got a young five-month-old so it's easy for me," she said.
"We often do the walk and come back. We've really missed it."
Brown added it was a good social outlet for the boys as well.
"Obviously with the older children here there's that role-modelling," she said.
"Our sons obviously aren't at the stage of doing tricks but just that fresh air and watching other kids do stuff - I think it's really great."
Taris and Tyson weren't the only ones enjoying the bowl yesterday with plenty of youngsters doing tricks after school.
