Kite festival

Standing on New Brighton pier looking south. The patch
of green in the distance to the left is the hill we live on.

Today is the last day of summer vacation for New Zealand schoolchildren which means everybody is at the beach. Tip Top Ice Cream sponsored a kite festival today at New Brighton and the place was mobbed. We had lunch at a nearby cafe and then let The Pea loose in the playground next to the beach.

She spent 99.9% of her time in the kiddie pool.

Then she was off for some saltwater fun. That lasted all of ten minutes before she spotted what she thought was a gift from the gods descending from the heavens...

The Pea is the small pink figure being restrained by LB. She was screaming,"HUG! HUG!! HUG!!!"

Kites galore.

How fun! An insanely jealous of pictures of LB in shorts (due to the gorgeous weather!)

I do have to say that the Kiwi's do love to take advantage of being outside

Adorable Pea, adorable family. The only thing missing is a picture of adorable you.

Story of my life, Erin - I'm nearly always the one behind the camera.

I was rockin' a huge Jewfro with all of the wind and humidity, which probably would have broken the camera lens any way.
