Birthday Celebrations for Hannah

 Hannah May turned 13 years old last Friday - can you believe it, I can't! 

She seems to have literally sprouted over night and is now only a few centimetres away from being taller than me!  We think it's all the dancing she is doing, lol. This year's dance classes consist of ballet, jazz, tap, contemporary and also, this year Hannah has taken on the challenge of solo and duo dancing. Many hours every week but she absolutely loves it with a passion.

This past weekend we decided to have a little break away for a few days, and it was just what we all needed. Although the weather wasn't the best, we enjoyed our weekend stay at Taupo, by the lake.

Brunches out - I love having Eggs benedict with salmon 

A visit to the Honey Hive for some treats

Always stop by Huka Falls 

Of course, I found a lovely fabric and knitting shop called the Eye of the Needle and picked up some fat quarters

The girls got to pick where we had dinner, one night it was MacDonalds and the other Indian Delight, which was so delicous

This is the villa we stayed at, very quiet and very spacious with a spa bath for the girls to enjoy

We also visited De Brett Hot Pools for a few hours, it was so good to chill out while enjoying a soak in the hot pools.

My youngest niece Sally also celebrated her birthday last weekend, her birthday is the day after Hannah's and she turned 10, where have the years gone?

See you soon xx

My daughter is 12 and a half, and she was very happy to discover last week that she is now taller than me. Although, at 5ft, I'm not difficult to beat, lol! Is that fabric and wool shop new? I'm sure it didn't exist when we were in Taupo a couple of years ago.
