♥ Weekend Bliss ♥

By PaisleyJade - Monday, November 21, 2011

Tonnes of weekend fun was had this weekend!  

Our local Playcentre held a Gala day which was awesome!!  There were heaps of games, goodies to buy and even pony rides and a petting zoo.  We manned the ticket stand together for most of the Gala, but also  had some time to check out the fun stuff.  The girls and I loved it!

This little girl kept squealing with delight for her whole pony ride.  It was her first time riding on a pony and she loved it!  p.s. I love the Lazy Day skirts - so easy to make!!

Hubby and I also went on a road trip on Sunday, as Symon was preaching at a church in a nearby town.  We discovered Burton coffee there, which Symon Burton thought was pretty awesome.

Check out the amazing New Zealand landscape.  We are so blessed to live in such a beautiful country!!

How was your weekend?
