Our 3rd Week

3 weeks ago we left KL! I can hardly believe it. Time is just zooming past.
Aaron has been helping Grandma in the kitchen a bit (probably a bit of a hindrance than a help! But anyway!). Here he's washing the carrots and getting himself rather wet in the process.
On Thursday we met my sister in town and picked up M as she had an appointment. So we went to the Museum to see if Henry the Tuatara was out sunbathing LOL.
Henry lives in an area like this one.
Aaron and M checking out the info board with skeleton & eggs.
Henry was no where to be seen, but these little fellows were. :-) They were quite active.
Maddison spent ages looking and chatting to one little fellow through the glass. Don't know if you can see in this photo, but he was right up close looking at her. She was fascinated.
After that we walked through the rest of the museum (quickly as you do if you have me or the kids with you LOL). We walked through here and this seal "rose"up from behind the rock and barked. Maddison thought it was a dog and Aaron insisted it was a shark for a bit, hehehe, but we showed him another seal and so then he got his story right to tell Grandad all about it!!
Aaron told me straight away that these were kiwis.
And these were penguins.
They spent a few minutes watching "The World's Fastest Indian".
Then home for Maddison to have a sleep and after lunch the boys spent ages outside on the trikes. I don't think I need to explain the "glee and excitement"! You can see it on their faces.

Love M's legs heeheee

After a while doing that they came round to the deck and Aaron had his first go at a trike with pedals! M took charge of the tractor.

This afternoon Grandma took the kids to a local playground. When they got home Aaron informed me that he climbed on the wire bridge but Maddison couldn't cause she was too little! LOL

She was determined all the same to do things herself!
She climbed a LOT of stairs all by herself ... didn't want any help thank you very much.

Just so she could go down this slide.
It was big and steep! Mum took a little video clip of Maddison coming down it and it's funny because Aaron was yelling out "Maddison wait for me, I come" and she's saying "NO" and heads off down the slide on her own. hehehee (I will see if I can load it up tomorrow.)
I have just realised now I have put all these photos in here that I have missed out a day! A very important one! Cousin T's 5th birthday!!! So I will do another post another day about that! Too tired now.

I love the pictures of the 2 boys on the trikes coming down the hill. Definitely something to scrap about.

Love the trike pics - we used to do that at Mum and Dad's old place. I destroyed a dress my mum had literally just finished sewing doing it. She wasn't happy.

It is going to be pretty boring when they get back home after having days cram-packed with fun things like this!! You are going to have to plan 'outing' for them at least once a day when you get back to KL!! Kate
