Loving this week

First of all

Loving loving!! Walking with Dinosaurs.....

( Pictures are blurry, because we couldn't use the flash,
although it didn't stop many others doing so... so rude! )

I bought the tickets in February, so this has been a long awaited trip in our family.... and it was so worth it!!

The picture below, shows the scale of the presenter and the Brachiosauruses... which the largest of the two was only 2/3's scale,
and still huge! And I learnt lots..... did you know a adult Brachiosaurus is 3 stories high and the length of two buses...
 I didn't!



And of course the T Rex was awesome, truly the best, and he came over to our seats and let out a huge roar above us.....
loved our seats!!!!

We took only the boys along, so Nana got to spend some quality time with her grand daughter, loving that...
and loving the mittens that my mum bought for her that day, and then sewed elastic to just like her mum used to for her..... 
and this is what awaited me that night on my bedroom door.....
loving you Mum




Loving our weekend in Auckland,
and our trip to the land...
 even though it was raining Big J and I still got to have fun jumping around in the long long grass and getting thoroughly soaked....
can't wait to live there, even in the rain it is simply peaceful

Loving bonding time with Big J.... simple things like walking around the mall, arms wrapped around each other... love this and soaking it up as much I can.

Now we are home....and I'm loving my old china set that mum found.   I had squirrelled it away many years ago.... carefully wrapped up in tissue ( peach coloured, do they still sell that colour? ) and packed into a box that one of our japenese students gave me...



I think my Nana bought this for me....
and now lil miss can enjoy



Last of all love this rascal.... even though she has just undone all my hard work... hmmmmnn!


Yes! thats undies on her head.... done all by herself

We loved it too! I bought the tickets when they first went on sale so it seemed like forever ago - but they were good ones. We were in the middle so we didn't get a T.rex roar directly, but we were at eye level and got stared at in a most disturbing way. Very glad it was just mechanical! I did know the dinosaurs were that big because I've seen the skeletons, but that doesn't prepare you for the bulk of them, or seeing them move around. It was really amazing. (I took videos with my phone instead of photos, they came out really well) My favourite bit, rather oddly perhaps, were those inflatable plants. So cool when they all went popping up the first time!

@Jacqui Yes I actually had butterflies in my stomach when the T-Rex came out, even though I knew she wasn't real... so awesome.. and the plants were so cool... oooh and the butterflies how they popped out into the air so quick that I only caught them floating down... such a cool affect! I could imagine alot of kids running out with nets trying to catch them, like the elefun game! lol
