big kids day out

Dadda had Friday off so we ditched the toddler at Grandmas and headed out of town for some big kids fun. First to Albany for some minigolf and then back to Waiwera hotpools
 

We were all a bit hit and miss (pun intended ;) with our shots...but I was quite chuffed about this shot. Oh yeah!
This was the first time the kids had played so it was a bit frustrating trying to  teach them with other players behind us waiting their turn.


Waiwera Hotpools



 I had a little play with a photoscape feature using the continuous shooting feature on the camera. Quite cool really. This was the kids favourite spot to be.

The last few times we have been to Waiwera I have been pregnant and not allowed to go on the slides. This time different story! They have lost two of the choobs ( the belly buster...and another one), but have added the twister and the speedslide. Its been a long time since I went down the slide. That along with the extra weight I'm carrying, meant it was super scary how fast I went! Good times!A great day out!
