Our two snowball, or pom pom, trees on our drive way are in full bloom at the moment. I love seeing the snowballs turn from lime green to white.
Last Sunday Hannah and I spent the day at Acres Wild, a riding school in Pakipaki, Hastings, with fifty other Hawkes Bay Girl Guides and a group of parents. We had a great day, well, apart from getting drenched in the last half an hour because we were out on an orienteering treasure hunt in one of the far paddocks! All good fun though!!
The girls spent the day participating in various activities including games, croquet, archery, riding, and horse care.
Hannah's horse was called Chocolate, and she had a fantastic time.
The archery was heaps of fun too.
This year our local supermarket had a Pumpkin competition for Halloween, and this is the creation Hannah came up with, with some help from her Dad with the carving of the face, a pumpkin fairy.
She was so excited to get a phone call from the supermarket after school on Tuesday to say she'd been chosen for the first prize! Yippee! First prize was gift card to spend in store so she was very, very happy about that and has already been thinking up a list of all the goodies she can buy, lol.
Halloween was earlier in the week and Hannah did some trick or treating around the neighbour hood with big cousin Zoe and a couple of her friends. This year she put her costume together herself, a witch's cat. This year there seemed to a lot more children out and about so the kids had a great time checking out all the costumes.
See you soon xx
