Today we are going to have Dante for the day... which is something that will make me very happy.
He's such a delightful, entertaining kid.

And he loves being here.

I'm hoping to talk Stew into taking us to the beach, Maraetai would be lovely I think.  It's not too far away, and it's a very safe beach for littlies.

Maybe I will have my first swim this summer?  Ha ha, summer is pretty much over eh?
Oh well.. I hear the water is still very warm.

So that's the plan.  Get the kid and go out somewhere for some relaxing downtime.


Well, even though the day was a bit windy and overcast, we decided to still go to the beach.  Steve and Bex also came along.

It turned out to be a lovely few hours.  The beach was virtually deserted!

Random photos:

 ABOVE:  See... deserted!  It was perfect weather for us, not too hot.  No one had a swim as we just didn't feel like it.

 ABOVE:  Typical teenager... at the beach... but more interested in her phone!

 ABOVE:  Archer surrounded by seagulls, he spent a lot of time crawling around trying to catch them.

 ABOVE:  Ok... it's a random duck.  

 ABOVE: We had hot dogs and chips on the beach for lunch.  It was lovely.  Archer tried drinking the tomato sauce.  *smiles*

ABOVE: It was interesting watching this guy kite surf.  He was pretty good at it.

The rest of the day has been spent relaxing and just enjoying family time.


  1. A fun, relaxing day is just what you need. Enjoy!

  2. Have a great day :-)

  3. The pictures are awesome. The beach is so beautiful and I have never seen one empty before - that would have been heaven to me. Bex had on such a pretty blue shirt - I loved it. Archer and the seagulls are a real trip! lol

  4. How awesome to get to the beach and it be like your own personal beach deserted those blue eyes gawd you could get lost in them! seriously

  5. Beach! It's 6 degrees Celsius here. Looks like you had a lovely day. Archie is a sweetie.
