I found summer...

It was in Palmerston North. Michael took me on a surprise night away for our Anniversary. He had planned to take the kids too but Nana Harding offered to have them instead.

So we tried out the air conditioning in the new car - it was amazing to see the temp outside rise as we drove away from Wellington (and then fall again as we returned!) We had a nice break away, dinner out at Lone Star - just time together without the kids was nice.

While I was there I looked up an old friend. She has seven of her own kids and one foster kid at the moment - they've just bought a new car that seats ten! And life in their house is so much more organised than in mine - what was I thinking that three kids was busy???? Try eight - and the oldest is not quite 13!


No more complaining about my three ... maybe none of their's has a personality like Jessi.....

I think you must be using our summer, 'cause we had a nice couple of days, and now it's gone.

Congratulations on the anniversary, and glad to hear you enjoyed your time away.
