A picnic at Pinders Pond, sausages cooked over an open fire and roasted marshmallows - a lovely outing on a cold and frosty, but sunny Central Otago's day.

A:   A wee pretend snooze in the sun. Peaceful and calm, but holding back the giggles. You are always so bright and colourful and stand out where-ever you go. Yesterday you asked Daddy how he was feeling: I'm ok thanks Anya, not quite as worn-out as this morning" he said. To which you asked: "So you're worn-in now?" :)

H:   Collecting rocks, stuffing all your pockets... so much so you had to hold your pants up. It was very entertaining to watch you on this challenging mission.

L:   There were a lot of rocks collected on this outing and you did your bit. Your pockets still had rocks in them, on the trip home a few days later. It is always intriguing to empty them and find all sort of things you've stored away! Chips, rocks, lego, lollies... And you are always particularly happy to discover a wee treat you saved!

  1. Looks like an amazing holiday adventure you are having.

  2. You can tell that it's both beautiful AND chilly from these pics - love the pretend sleeper - she had me fooled - I thought for sure she WAS asleep. Lovely holiday memories captured - and yes pockets are always a treasure trove - my N is forever putting Glad snack bags in his pockets after eating his morning tea at school and then they end up going through the wash and I wonder why the pockets won't dry!!!

  3. The pretend sleeper had me totally fooled .. .. .. not that she was asleep .. .. .. but that she was in fact her youngest sister! Gosh they look alike.
    Love adventures like this!

  4. I love the way the are dressed - they look so European/Scandinavian or something. It makes me want to start singing 'the hills are alive with the sound of music' or something similar!

  5. Gorgeous photos of the girls! and I love the way you have given us a visual picture of what they were up too! So funny x


Thanks for stopping by - it brightens my day!
