Playground #368 of this trip had some very cool elements. And it nicely matched Blake’s colour scheme. The fountain at Mission Bay.We’ll always find time for mini golf.

Beautiful Long Bay Beach.With a delicious picnic. The ducks were very interested in Blake’s sandwich too. Another round of mini golf.Playing at Wendy’s school playground. This neat ramp thing is a toy car run and Blake is trying to beat the cars to the bottom. Very, very cool.
Blake’s favorite game, hands down, is mini-golf. He loves it!!!! It was the one thing on this vacation that Blake wanted to do, so we found a course near by and hit it. Look at this concentration.For anyone who wonders where Blake got the tongue sticky out thing – look no further.
Of course we’ve all been enjoying the lovely, fresh, homegrown New Zealand fruits and veggies, but every chance he gets, Blake enjoys a nice hot chocolate or an icy popsicle. Yum!

I did bring my camera on our morning excursion, but I didn’t bring my camera battery. Too bad because we did cool things like cliff climbing … Continue reading
