In New Zealand they speak English, but it's not quite the same way we do here. For example, while Nana is here Grampa Wayne is 'going bush'. It sounds funny to me. What it means is he's camping out, or doing something in the great outdoors/woods/bush. The first day Nana arrived, we went bush....but only for an hour or so. The flight to/from NZ to here is loooong! It's hard to adjust to the time change at first. One thing that helps is some fresh air - especially after being cooped up for hours and hours and interminable hours on the plane. Our bush is not quite as remote as where Grampa Wayne is. Ours is right out our door! But it's still in the woods, outside, and there are bushes. Or trees. Vegetation of some kind. So it qualifies as 'going bush', I'm told.
Ignore the big black boots D is wearing. They're his bush boots, apparently. They go so well with his hairy white legs. Nana had her first Croc experience and the day after this went to buy some for her very self! I'd say she liked 'em. :)
Maddy is LOVING her Ergo. So are we, actually. I'm wearing her on my back in this photo, but I can wear her on my front or even side with this thing. It is the best baby carrier we have found, and we tried several kinds of slings, front carriers, and back carriers. This one does it all, and will do it all from birth to 40+ lbs, depending on how long you want to carry your babe. It's so comfy.....I know I sound like an advertisement for Ergo, but really - it's the best!
My guy and his mum. How sweet.
We're interspersing days of relaxation between days of activity, and we're all having such a lovely time. I wish every day was a vacation day!
