Well.... I think I've got it all... all the stuff we need for today, and all the stuff Keera will need for her holiday with Steve and Bex.

Stew has to load the car in a minute, cos we shall be heading off by 8.30 am to get to the Bounce and Beyond venue in time to meet up with everyone.

NOT that we have a large group, just a few members of the family.

All going well, Lacy and her flatmate Jono will arrive too.   They have at least 5 hours to travel to get down to Auckland.  It's really lovely of Jono to bring Lacy down!

Keera is going to be so happy to have her Mum attend her 5th Birthday. 5th Birthday's are very special here.  It marks the start of being a 'big school kid'.  

We should be home again late afternoon, then we can have dinner and relax for the evening.  And tomorrow morning... I CAN SLEEP IN!  I feel guilty ... Bex will have to get up to 3 kids.
But, it will be good practise for next year right?  lol

So, until I can update, either during the day, or when I get home.... catch ya later.


We are safely home after a lovely, lovely day.
I'm flat out cooking dinner and editing photos.  I will post a couple tonight after dinner, and more tomorrow.

So until then.... hang in there.

ABOVE:  having fun ... it was HOT FUN.

 ABOVE:   Keera was really happy to spend some time with Lacy.

She had an awesome day, bet she sleeps well tonight!

 ABOVE:  She was insistant on cutting her own cake... NO HELP thank you!

ABOVE:  Lastly for today, Steve got MY EARS.  And his Dad?  A pretty headband.  He's a right hard case is my man.

Dinner tonight was macaroni cheese with bacon and red onions. Bloody yum.

Now... going to relax for the rest of the evening.  

Tomorrows post will be later than usual as I have a lot to put up... and there will be a massive rant at the end of it.
