Easter long weekend

This year we spent Easter at home. Our time was split between lazing around doing nothing and a couple of easy outings. Here's what we got up to.

Big trees provide hours (ok, maybe not hours but longer than you'd expect) of free entertainment for the kids.

Explored the Winter gardens.

Steve surfed at Port Waikato.

While we ate hot chips. And yes, they were hot!

Played with Lego when it got wet outside.

Made (and ate) Rocky Road.

Drank heaps of coffee.

Made (and ate) pancakes – perfect for every special occasion. These are seriously good. Leave a comment if you want the recipe. Of course, they're gluten-free too!

Personally, I've spent hours putting a Wasgij together. What's a Wasgij I hear you ask? It's a jigsaw but the catch is you don't know what it actually looks like until you've finished.

Got lots of chocolate goodies from E.B. (have seen Hop?)

We also went to the movies to see Hop and played Banagrams. We hope you've had a nice weekend too!
