Vincent Turns One

24.10.18  POST CATEGORY  :  Together | Lifestyle | Children | Family | Celebration
Its not every day you get invited to go to an Alice in Wonderland teaparty, of course they really should be everyday events because they are soooo much fun to attend. Vincent got to celebrate his very first birthday with his family and cousins in his Grandparents beautiful garden and although I'm not sure he really new what all the fuss was about, one thing I am sure of, is that he thought the bright blue cupcakes were pretty delicious, along with the little blue candles too!

Bonfires and Chinese Lanterns

Genevieve celebrated turning twelve this year with some geocaching around a wetland with her friends, followed by lots of open fire cooking at the beach. Dampa bread, sausages, marshmallows and tinfoil wrapped bananas! Yum!! The girls all lit there own fires using a flint which was pretty impressive. The cake was a bonfire of course, and naturally it had to be on fire, a left over box of sparklers provided this element. The evening was finished off with eating cake and lighting Chinese lanterns, watching them float out to sea. A lovely way to finish a perfect evening. Click to view full blog post

TranzAlpine

2.8.18  POST CATEGORY  :  Together | Personal | Lifestyle | Family

The end of the school holidays saw us take a train trip across the Canterbury planes to the West Coast on the Tranz Alpine. It was lovely to have extended family with us, let's just say the tubing that took nearly a whole hour just to get into ones wetsuits, wouldn't have been nearly as much fun without everyone there! No one would know who we were talking about when we drop 'Mr Green' a newly invented term, into converstations from now on either unless you were actually there ;-) The Tranz Alpine is one of the top ten train journeys in the world and I can understand why, although being a fellow kiwi, it just seems 'normal'.

The cloud formations as we left Christchurch were pretty impressive...

Balloons at Elephant Rocks

Sophia has just turned four, and what better way to celebrate than with some ginormous pink and white balloons!! There was going to be four balloons of course... but maybe one balloon had other ideas. Of course the gas canisters said they'd fill 30 balloons, but managed a sum total of four. It didn't matter... you know it's going to be a good day when the lighting's stunning, the sky is thunderous and someone declare, "Can we do a funny face" a great family day out with a story to tell for years to come :-)

Happy Birthday Miss Sophia!!

Baking in the Park

It's not everyday you get to photograph three generations icing a cake together... in a park! Sometimes life throws you a curve ball and the best thing you can do is throw it back! 'Carpe Diem', seize the day and have some fun! That's what these girls certainly did sporting war paint icing on their faces and just a little bit of 'fairy dust' icing sugar falling from the skies. Such fun. Click to view full blog post
