Busy weekend in Wellington…

I am feeling jet lagged from our whirlwind weekend plus the change in time with daylight savings! I am in the tiresome process of washing and unpacking from our trip. We caught up with lots of friends but not everyone one so will have to do it again sometime.

We left here on Friday and got in Wellington at about 1pm or so. I dropped DH & Ariana off at the Zoo while Makayla and I went to Spotlight for some crafty supplies. I also got a new cake tin for Ariana’s birthday cake as well as a cake board and super duper icing transfer picture plus some icing gel pens to write on the cake. That night Megan and Glenn came around to catch up and they gave Makayla a gorgeous birthday pressie which she wore yesterday at the birthday party.

Saturday was action packed with a gathering at a friends place in Lower Hutt and then from there we caught up with some of our old antenatal group from when Ariana was a baby. The kids had a blast at the macca’s playground!

Chaos!

We then travelled back to Wellington to have a bit of quiet time. I finished the dolly pinny for the birthday party the next day (see below post) and took some cute photos of the girls. Meanwhile DH was running/walking around the Karori Wildlife Sanctuary (crazy buggar!).

Then on Saturday night the Inglis family came to visit – lots of fun and noise!! Max and Ariana are great wee friends so had a blast catching up as I did with his Mum.

On Saturday the clocks changed forward an hour (yah for Daylight Savings!) so we had to get ready quickly to get to Carterton way for S’s birthday party. The day was so summery and the kids had a great time. Here are some neat birthday party shots….
