Harry's 12th Birthday

Last Wednesday was Harry's 12th birthday.  He was still on school holidays so he got to choose what he did for the day and his choice was to go to Elm Park School with mum!  He spent the day helping out, delivering to classrooms and catching up with some old friends.  At lunchtime we rushed down to Pakuranga Plaza and he spent some of his birthday money on some Skylander figurines.

That night he was allowed to choose what we did for dinner.  He has several favourite restaurants and also favourite meals we cook but instead chose to get Wendys takeaways and eat them at home while watching Masterchef Australia!!!!  Afterwards we all had a go playing Skylander on the Wii.

All in all, a pretty perfect day from Harry's perspective!

Bromleys in Auckland

It was so much fun to finally meet Hannah while the Bromleys were in Auckland recently.  She is adorable and so placid.  Harry took a real shine to Hannah and even Georgia eventually warmed up!

Tree Adventures

Georgia and Harry both love going to Tree Adventures and we've been a few times this year.  The parents are too chicken to have a go but we usually manage to persuade a friend or two to come along and share the fun!

Book Character Day

Back in term one Harry dressed up as Harry Potter for Book Character Day at school.  Of course he knew all of the spells off by heart ...
