Friday night

Our latest Friday night involved five families, with 15 children, 11 of whom were boys! The kids were great and we had a fun evening. A late night for the children since it was after 9 pm before we got home. The next morning I saw they were all lying around on the rug outside in the sun so I think we wore them out!

Banks Peninsula Walk

I spent the weekend walking a great track on the Banks Peninsula with three friends. We had a great time! The walk was great, gorgeous scenery and views, and the accommodations were so sweet. They had done a lovely job making really quirky, cute places to stay. Along the way we also saw fur seals and had a nesting blue penguin and two chicks on our deck on the second night. We also got very lucky with the weather!

Orana Park

We had a nice day at Orana park in the holiday with a few friends. The kiwis were a highlight because there were running around chasing each other and calling to each other. We also enjoyed watching the lions getting fed. One of the tigers also gave Eben a look like he hoped to eat him!
