There were farm animals to pet and lots to toys to play with
Simply a lovely day out, free of charge and with glorious weather.
What a great way to spend a Saturday.

Ribbet !!

These are the newest member of the Strang Clan, two tadpoles.
Max is wanting to see then turn into frog and of course as every four year old does he expects it to happen in minutes.
So the waiting begins, lets hope they survive living in a four year olds' room.

Stillwater Dinner

We are finally able to have the night off from cooking dinner in out small part of the world.

Some clever guy saw the need for a takeaway place here in Stillwater and it has been running for a week now so we felt the urge to try it out..

So as it was a beautiful evening in Auckland we headed down for a late afternoon swim and dinner over looking the water. Bliss

Meeting Rosa Strang

It was with great excitment we got to meet the newest member of the Strang family during our Christmas Holiday. She was so pretty and tiny, Max was smittened by her.
Clucky is what I was sure I was going to be on meeting a "girl" newborn all dressed in pink and yes I was but also very aware of the massive amounts of work the goes with a newborn and the lack of sleep. Hmmm the Jury's still out on that one.
