Another Beautiful Wellington Day.....

See, I told you "Wellington Weather" is a myth perpetuated by Aucklanders. Here's us having fun by the sea at Island Bay:

And you need wind to windsurf, right? A wee gust of wind or two keeps this going, now worries at all:

We called in to the airport to pick up Uncle Darren and Aunty Dorothy, here's their plane - no worries landing at the airport:

Chef Shari cooked us the best Bacon and Egg Pie in the world, L6 got the recipe he loved it so much:

Coffee with Nana and Uncle Trev completed our day out:

A12 hardly ever has a bath these days, but with spa jets and the option of a ton of bubbles, the little boy comes out in him:

Playing Hairstylists.....

Nana saw some girls in town last week with a cool 'hairnet' made from their own hair, and copied it on the girls:

I did L10's, and it wasn't anywhere near as neat and tidy as Nana's attempt on H8:

Tree Felling at Nana's.....

Nana and Poppa were getting some trees dropped at their place and it was fascinating to watch the guys in action - when you are skilled at something and are doing a professional job, it's certainly made to look an easy one:

Even the native birds come for a nosey - kereru don't like eucalypts as a rule, so we're not doing him out of home:

Here's H8's first trevally of the day:

And bad photos of cake with his mates at bowling:

Love you, big fellah xoxoxo

Giant Doodle Pads.....

We've been having fun colouring these pads lately, it flies against all that I know about the evils of pre-printed colouring books ;o) but sometimes you just have to accept you wanna go the lazy way:

Netball Tournament.....

Here's L10 in action, shooting a goal for THE Dream Girls (Tauranga Home Educators Dream Girls). We learned a valuable lesson today, that you need to be vigilant with score cards, even at this age level, and that some parents have no scruples. We know we won the game fair and square and should have got the runner-up prize packs, and the team who diddled the score card knows that, too.

I'm not bitter about it, at all ;o)
