We took the boys on a mini holiday over ANZAC weekend.
We spent a day in Queenstown, watching boats, climbing trees, and buying wine.
We did our first whole-family walk up Mt Iron (the littlest one made it all the way to the top; the biggest faceplanted onto a rock and is now sporting an impressive black eye), scootered alongside Lake Wanaka, and climbed things we thought we couldn’t climb.
We recharged our batteries, ignored much of the outside world, enjoyed the autumn sunshine, and returned home feeling rather relaxed.
It was blissful.
