And now 2

Enjoying sandpit time

Alayna is now 2 years old which meant a party and lots of celebrating. Alayna recieved lots of cool presents including loads of clothes, many great books and games (the fishing game from Aunty Bridget and the clan Burdett is fantastic). There were a number of gifts that were made rather than bought such as the wonderful rocking horse from Phil and Elaine and the sandpit that I made with a design adapted by Keryn from free plans found on the Internet. Keryn also made a lot of things such as a doll that she’ll detail at some point. In the meantime here are some of Alayna’s new things.

With the arrival of spring we’ve had a few lovely weekend days and we’ve been spending some more time outdoors. The weekend just gone saw the annual tulip day at the Wellington Botanical Gardens and we went along to check out the events. Unfortunately (for me anyway) I took my camera but left the memory card at home. So instead of photos from the day we’ll have to make do with photos from the previous weekend visit where Alayna had a grand old time at the gardens playground.
