We are staying amongst the Bush on the hills of Normandale, Lower Hutt 15 minutes drive outside of Wellington in a gorgeous family home. We really love it here, it is cosy and there is a space for the children to play, we decided to stay longer. We are surrounded by trees and the familiar sound of the cicada. Today Bethany and I went to a Timbernook playgroup in the Belmont Regional Park 10 minutes drive from here. It was so much fun, we read the story ‘Dragons love Tacos’ and then decorated the trees and campfire ready for our own dragon taco party where we toasted cheesy tacos on an open fire. What a great way to spend the morning and a lovely chance to make new friends.
