These days. These fab, fab, fab days. Ekeing out every little moment of time. Taking these minutes to remember and multiplying these into the memories that will have to last us for the coming years.
We've explored so much of Wellington already, and it's only been 2 days.
Weta workshops. What a wonderful, free activity. Wow, even as a proud Wellingtonian I had no idea how much Weta has put Wellywood on the movie map. Weta has been involved in over 100 movies since Lord of the Rings. Roughly 12 movies a year. Not to mention developing the Wotwots and Jane and the Dragon for children as well. Oh we have a lot to be proud of.
Wellington Zoo. The best little zoo in the world. Arrived just in time for the tiger talk. Wow. Jack was enthralled. Mylo was tickled pink. Literally. Every time the tigers put their front paws up on the fence to be fed, he giggled and giggled. Unbelievably funny. The giraffes put on a graceful show following in each other's footsteps. The kiwis were literally close enough to touch - what an amazing experience for our special visitors to see all this in one visit.
The cable car and Beehive. Two must-do's for tourists. And the views did not disappoint either.
To see the bond between these two cousins develop so instantly, living half a world away from each other as they do, is nothing short of amazing. They have settled into this beautiful, loving, accepting and sharing relationship as if they see each other every day. To see two boys jumping, laughing, playing, biking, drawing, and cuddling so beautifully is a delight for the four parents to see. Beyond our wildest dreams. And the oceans that lie between us....well they have parted like the Red Sea. Its as if Jack and Noah have never, ever been apart.
And then a trip to Waiwhetu marae....and well, that is a tale for another day....
