highlight #1 CAMPING@TARAWERA:
i think that hubby won the wasp-war.. D17 swatted only eighteen of the little stripers...
our very own tent city... complete with $14.95 gazebo/kitchen/dining room/lounge in the background.. cos we remembered the poles this time.... and didn't have to tie it all to an overhanging tree...
D17's tent-pitching skills
(girls only want boyfriends who have great skills.. )
Daddy and the boyz playing with the plastic soldiers, tentside.
R13 and S9 and J11 jumping off the bridge..
S9 doing tumble turns off the bridge...
jumping off The Cliffs of Insanity (photos to follow)..
floating down the river.. trekking to the waterhole,
S9 fighting off something jungl-ular...
Darryl's and Frank Spencer's (aka Hubby) swimming race across the lake at dusk..
great budgie-smugglers, boys...
(I know I am so naughty posting that photo *evil giggle*)
the beautiful Tarawera falls...
(some of) da kidzand with two extra kids, where shall we go?? (rhetorical question)
the trick with going camping.. it's all about *da peeps*.. the more the merrier, i say. and of course, Hubby's famous frozen pina coladas. so decadent.
highlight #2 WACKY*WEIR'KEND*:
Bee and Pea at our place: two very cool chickadees.
Bee and S9 braving the waves.
Pea and M5 making a sandcastle... with a moat...
the kidz: check out those sherbet-smiles
(and note the Charlie's angels:
looks like a photo from the past that I have of you'n'me, Doozie...)
love the fun, love the laughs, love the movies and the music, the mussels and pinot gris and chortling to Carl Barron.down with love, big ups to Napoleon...
cereal-heaven in the pantry:
and that's just the leftovers.
it's always a foodie-party with the Weirs.
