The school holidays are still a highlight of our lives – counting down the weeks to family time – and these ones just been have been particularly lovely.
B.’s parents came to visit us in the first week, and then we visited my family in Auckland in the second week, and we’ve had many a springtime experience!
I’ve been hanging on to Easter goodies since April, and it was literally a dream come true to bring them out for a wee spring celebration for T. He had an egg hunt in the backyard, finding empty plastic ones and vintage-style egg tins, which I filled with egg shaped musical shakers, two homemade finger puppets (a bunny and a chicken) and a chocolate bunny (his first!)
We also spent time at both the Auckland Domain and Cornwall Park, two beautiful green spaces that were a huge part of my childhood and remain the places I miss most. Requisite tree hugging was accomplished with enthusiasm, as well as bird chasing, lamb spotting and general romping.
Wishing you all a happy spring!
