School Holidays

Hannah is now back at school for Term 2 after the two week school holidays. This year both Easter and ANZAC public holidays fell during the two weeks so Glenn and I didn't take any time off work, we're saving our annual leave for later in the year. Hannah spent a few days with Zoe, her cousins and a few days coming to work with me. 

But we did head away for a small Girls break with my good friend Tracey and her daughter Abigail, who is one of Hannah's best friends, to Palmerston North. We were only away one night but we sure packed a lot in!


Starting with a visit to Flip City, an indoor trampoline park - heaps of fun!




Followed by lunch at the Plaza and shopping - Hannah had been saving all her pocket money for weeks :)



New shoes for all of us, and Hannah picked out her birthday present, the latest Sketchers light ups, co cool :)


Sunday night we went out for dinner to Gengy's, which is a Mongolian BBQ restaurant.





Tracey and Abigail stayed at a motel and we stayed with Donna and Jess. We didn't see a lot of them over the two days but we enjoyed the brief visit catching up and a delicious breakfast at one of Palmerston's cafes called Joe's Garage.


The rest of Monday morning was spent at the Ice Skating rink. This had been set up for a few weeks in the Square and the girls had so much fun.  It was getting quite warm by the end of their session so there were quite a few puddles around the rink.



They also checked out the snow globe:



After lunch we headed to the Esplanade Gardens and park for a train ride and play.



Before long it was time to pack up the car and head home. The girls had a wonderful time hanging out with each other, lots of giggling and laughs.  Another fun trip to Palmy.

Until next time xx

Looks like you all had a wonderful time. I still find it strange that even though we are opposite corners of the world we have the same entertainment, the snow globes, the animals on the ice rink.
