Been looking forward to today all week... we are going back to spend the day at the Marine Reserve up north.... and this time we have all the 'stuff' we need!

Goggles/masks and flippers... we will be able to swim and see the fish easily with our new gear.

I'm going to pack a really good picnic lunch... cos we are bound to get HUNGRY swimming for hours eh?

Until we get back and I can update... here's a few photos from last night's Party:

ABOVE:  Stew went as a farmer...

ABOVE:  the Birthday Girl sitting on her brother's knee, her Mum to the right and her Grandmother to the left....

ABOVE:  two of the guests....  Fairy Godmother and French Gendarme...

ABOVE: Birthday Girl's Hubby... Friar Tuck...

ABOVE:  more guests....

ABOVE:  where the party was...upstairs in Vulcan Lane, Auckland city...

ABOVE:  cutting her cake... which was a mega rich chocolate .... took some home with us!  

ONWARD... the beach awaits!

It's 5.30pm and we just got home from the beach.   To say we had a fantastic day would be an understatement!  I swam so much I am now completely KNACKERED!  I can hardly keep my eyes open...

Stew is cleaning all the swimming gear, Steve is putting all the uneaten food away and I am in charge of getting all the washing done.  At least we can share all the jobs out....  *yawn*... I have never looked forward to bed more!

I took very few photos today...well hell... I was in the water 90% of the time!  We are all prunes

P.S.:  I went to the party as a 'Fashion Photographer' so I could take photos for J.

End of Day:  an awesome day! 
DIET:  great!
nite nite.

  6. Wow, what awesome pictures! I LOVE costume parties but everyone around here is so darn serious. There is one I have in mind but can't get anyone do have the party. It's a thrift store one where you find the most interesting outfits and make it kinda over the top too. Like the worst outfits you can find. Tee hee... Would be so fun.
