"Go see the ducks." "Off to see the ducks." A couple weekends ago while we were enjoying some of that summer heat, Jacob suggested on a Saturday night that we should go the next morning and see the ducks down at the Wellington Botanical Gardens. The boys were keen. It turned out to be a lovely… Continue reading Duck!
In case I haven't mentioned it before, some of Jacob's family moved recently, closer to Wellington which is awesome, into a gorgeous, 100-year old farmhouse. It's beautiful, peaceful and quiet. It's just outside of the town and surrounded by rolling hills. If we didn't have the house we have, I would have killed for this house!… Continue reading Another summery sunny weekend in Whanganui

Anything from fondue to pork hocks, or coq au vin to spaetzle. It gets a little out of… Continue reading A very special Monday..

Life is good here in Wellington. We have lucked out with the weather. It's been simply stunning. Being able to play outside and get that fresh air makes all the difference in the world. We had a great weekend spent with family and spending the time to catch up on little things ie. tree trimming and… Continue reading Another Sunny Weekend!
It can be really hard to deal with school holidays and two crazy boys. But we manage. Playdough, drawing, outings to the dog beach, reading, playdates, baking. It's exhausting. There are those days when you want just five minutes to yourself, and it never seems to come. A key thing I've discovered the last couple of… Continue reading School holidays… Again.
And by that, I mean - Mom, here are the latest photos of your grandsons! Yeah. Seriously. Oh and I'm also catching up on the hundreds of photos I've taken over the past week, with a NEW CAMERA!
