Lego was a highlight this Christmas and the boys, especially Hugo have enjoyed the cooler weather as he has been busy creating many Lego models.

as i walked down memory lane, i watch new memories being made with the next generation. priceless

morning ride

this morning i woke and went for a 10km run along the beach, a perfect way to start the day and to kick start the holidays. (although i have had 2 weeks off its not until Christmas is over that i really stop, relax, unwind and it feels like holidays. part of that i think has to do with the beach and how that unwinds me) so i had had a good run and then i was greeted at the gate with 2 excited boys on their new bikes busting to go for a ride. mum and dad live on a hilly road, so the flat road at the bottom of their street is pretty busy, so after playing policeman for awhile i suggested we go along the beach track. great for them but i think i ran another 2-3 km jogging alongside them and sharing their joy. we stopped walked on the beach, paddled in the water, skimmed shells, rode some more, till eventually i suggested we should have morning tea and a break and then we can do it all again then hit the to love long summer days


Posted by Picasait turned out to be a cool day but the boys still fished and played on the beach.

christmas morning

its the small things that got their attention and excitement the most on this special morning. a toothbrush and tiny figurine were more exciting than the gear bike that Santa bought!!!!
reading the note that Santa left and checking what he had eaten and drunk before their sacks were even looked at !!!!

camping out

Posted by Picasawe gave the boys a tent for Christmas along with their own torch headlights.
i thought it might be a bit of fun over summer to do some back yard summer camping.
mum and dad have a large upstairs deck round the house at the beach so we decided to set the tent up Christmas afternoon and then they slept in it tonight.
they were so excited to be sleeping in their own tent.
they carefully arranged all their toys around themselves, snuggled in and were quickly fast asleep, with the best camping view you could have !
the boys slept all night and then spent the next 3 nights camping out. they loved it !!
