What a cutie :)

Last Saturday we took Tyler to the Weber Bros. Circus. He really enjoyed it, especially when a clown came and gave him a High 5! Every day we detour past the circus so he can look at the big tent and relive the experience in his mind.

After the circus visit we went to Queens Park for Tyler to play in the playground. He demanded that I go down the big slide after him. So I hauled myself up there and then started sliding down. Only to get stuck 2/3rds of the way down because kids had been going down in wet bathing suits. So I half stood up to get myself over the damp bit and WHEEEEE! I did the big banana-skin slip. Thought I had sprained my thumb, had a seriously ouchy elbow and my butt.....oooooh the pain!! It's even worse now! And did Chris rush over and soothe my bruised body (not to mention battered pride)? Nope, he couldn't stop laughing long enough! Here's the bruise 2 days after the event.

With all this lovely weather, Tyler has discovered the joys of the Queens Park water play area. He still won't voluntarily put his head underwater, but he will run under the jets (shrieking all the way).

Goodness it's been a while since I updated! And things have been happening. We have signed up for another property. A 5 bedroom place in Kennington with a games room, conservatory, great decking and an acre of land. We are only a backup contract though so have to wait to see if the prior one falls over.

We also have a conditional contract for the sale of the farmlet, so a waiting game there too. I guess if it's meant to be, it will be. Chris' Mum came down and had a look at the Kennington place and felt good about it too.
Last weekend I went to the NZ Masters Games in Dunedin for netball. We were unfortunately in the wrong grade but we had a blast all the same. On Wednesday Chris and I played in a Waitangi Day touch tournament - our team was called Ngati Pakeha! :)
I have been having blood tests since my miscarriage as they found something slightly awry after testing the POC but it looks like all is OK now.
Tyler cracked us up the other day by calling out "Hey Dad! C'mere a tick!" Sounded just like his Daddy.
