We visited The Begonia House, which is where Pete and I had our wedding reception, a very long time ago...
The girls loved throwing coins into the fountain...
...while I enjoyed the colours, shapes and textures.
We all loved this hanging monstrosity - the Staghorn Fern.
Why the name? Well, look up...
I have always loved water lilies - they are just so serene.
The girls just wanted to find fish.
We always visit the wonderful Te Papa (Our Place) Museum, and how happy was I to discover the Webb Ellis Cup (the Rugby World Cup) on display? Delirious.
So back in Auckland and Pete tells me the girls are invited to meet the All Blacks
Yes, Lily does have her hair band over her All Black beanie! Boys and footwear huh?
Anyone else noticed that the 'and partner' tickets seem to morph into single tickets beyond the pool rounds?
Happy holidays. Annie x.
