Daddy in the garden...

While Grandma Sandra was here Daddy took a bit of time off from work, and used some of it to chop down the big hedge between our house and our neighbours, Jan & Noel. It was a big job, and looks really good ! At first we thought a new hedge would be put in, but now it is going to be just a fence instead.

We have also been busy planting vegetables in our new vege garden, which is growing really well so far. We have lettuce, spring onions, a few different herbs, silverbeet, broccoli, and cauliflower, as well as some lavender and aloe vera. This weekend we put in some seeds for peas (climbers), radishes and carrots, although it will be a while before we can eat any of those. We will try and take some pictures today to put up later.

Mothers Day

This year it was a first for Jax, so as a special treat we all went out to dinner - well, all the grown ups that is ! Our wonderful friend Margo came over to babysit (even though Miss Erin was already in bed), so Jax, Roland, Nana Trish, and Grandma Sandra went to a thai restaurant. It was yummy! We also got to drink some lovely sparkling wine, and finished off with a wonderful dessert as well.

Oh, and as it turns out Miss Erin must be super duper clever, because when Jax woke up in the morning (after a great sleep-in) she discovered a box of chocolates and a card next to her on the bed - mmmm, chocolate...

Love Jax, Roland & Erin

Rub a dub dub, part 2 !!

We have been a bit quiet here in blog-land the last few days as we have had a special visitor, Grandma Sandra ! After spending some time in Sydney with Uncle Alex, Aunty Karen, Zara & our new little niece/cousin Jamie, she came to NZ to stay with us for a few days. We had lots of fun, and would also like to share some of our latest bathtime photos.

Getting ready...

Ooooh, lots of bubbles !

Gasp! It's WET in here!

Rub a dub dub

Check out our new makeshift bath tub !

As you can see, Miss Erin enjoyed herself quite a lot - especially with all the toys. We do still hope to get a "real" bath though, someday !!
