We enjoyed a good couple of days this weekend. The sun shone again and on Saturday afternoon we had our first New Zealand BBQ of the season, hosted by our friends Andy and Zara. On Sunday we took a road trip up to some amazing beaches on the east coast north of Auckland. The boys went for a surf whilst Lila and I built some sandcastles and ran races along the beach. Lila also had her first surfing experience, being pulled along on Daddy's surfboard in a pool of shallow water on the beach, which she absolutely loved. She is now asking for her own 'pink' wetsuit!
We have decided it is time to start potty training (have been putting it off long enough!) and while I will be very glad to see the back of nappies for a while, I am a little bit daunted by the task ahead of us. I especially fear for the condition of the carpets. Today we went out and Lila chose a potty - which plays songs, no less- and she has been very keen to sit on it and also use it as a high chair for her teddy. So fingers crossed it will not be too much of an arduous task.
