We had quite a busy long weekend, unusually so as I managed to take off work the Sat & Sun. I know,right, having to work Easter Sunday!?! So we made the most of it!
We headed to Whakatane (Fuk-a-tah-nay, not wok-a-tane- for you non Kiwis) to catch up with some friends. The boys were in heaven…other people’s houses are always more fun than your own!
rest stop in Te Puke
The boys were awesome on the almost 3 hour trip. I had every number of treat packed to keep them occupied if need be but they were quite happy to watch everything out the windows & occasionally engage in some singing!
guess who learnt how to ride without training wheels!? He jumped on, told Hubby to push him & he was away! Hubby was so impressed he hasn’t stopped telling everyone he comes into contact with.
I’m so clever
and then there was the bike. Now calm yourself down,Master 3 wasn’t wearing a helmet as we were at the park & he was being taken slowly across from 1 side to the other by Mister 7, who was in full regalia from having ridden all the way from home. ‘Coz I know there are some people who don’t let their kids out of their site without a crash helmet on, we just do things differently(but safely!)
An afternoon at Ohope Beach….

a big weekend for us…
sleeping in the car is awesome!
All in all a great weekend spent together…if only all weekends were 4 days long!! Today we are recovering, with the boys tired & miserable and very clingy. And 4 cups of coffee later I have resorted to a DVD & popcorn to curb the whinging for a little while. Now for the rest of the afternoon….
