My first snow day.

When we woke up we saw snow on the mountains and I ate some snow off the grass so that I could taste it. Then I played in the garden for a little.

After breakfast, at 8 o'clock I got dressed very warmly and wore a hat and a hoodie and gloves. 

Daddy, Mummy and I drove to Tunnel Gully to see if there was more snow there. When we got there it was snowing. We stopped the car and went in the snow. It was snowing and it was cold. Daddy and I built a snowman. My hands got really cold and I was sad and cried. After that we drove a little further to play at our river spot. Daddy and I threw snowballs in the river. They floated down the river. 

When we left Daddy put three snowballs on the car. They were still there when we got to our house. We threw them at garage and at Mummy.

What! My gloves keep getting wet!

Daddy took a little time off work to play in the snow with us!

4th of July - Kiwi style.

The Amerikiwis decided to celebrate Independence Day in NZ and invited us to a Sparkler Extravaganza!

Picture ten under fours, assorted parental units, root beer floats, cupcakes, pyjamas, slippers, sparklers and the front yard in the dark and cold.

They played tag, played with the sparklers, watched a few fireworks, laughed, giggled and monkeyed around.

Pretend tea was made and shared, Snail had a birthday cake and Monkey asked the whole party to stop and blow out the pretend candles. A few tears were shed, lots of kisses and cuddles shared. Happy 4th of July!
Enjoying Root Beer floats (Although he was convinced it was wine!)
And wouldn't you kill for BusyIzzy's hair?
Also note the new slippers - the only size 11 slippers in the store!
Pre-sparkler running -
No sparkler pics though as all the mums and dads were panicking about burns!
Happy hyper kids ready to go home after a great night of sparkler fun.
