Happy Father’s Day – 2009 Celebrations

Well today was Father’s Day. It started out with the girls making Tata his breakfast. JAHG had decided to play a trick on her Dad. So the night before she had put some breakfast cereal into a bowl with some milk (half way) and then placed it into the freezer to go solid. Then the next morning she placed some more cereal and milk over the frozen breakfast.

SZG was very impressed that his little girl had made his breakfast. He sat down at the table with a big smile on his face and as he started to tuck into his cereal he ‘hit’ a snag as the spoon hit the frozen breakfast in the bowl. Thankfully SZG seen the funny side of his daughter’s prank and laughed along with us all at his breakfast demise.

After a second attempt to eat breakfast, we all had full bellies. Then we all got ready and went out for an adventure of a different sort! SZG had decided that we would venture up to the top of Mount Wellington and enjoy some fun in the snow. The girls and I had tried to get to the top of the mountain a few days earlier, but were unsuccessful after the roads were closed off due to heavy snow fall and black ice.

Today however we were very fortunate and able to enjoy some time up the top of Mount Wellington. NIK had never experienced the snow before and she had a lot of fun and excitement playing in the white stuff. We all enjoyed a Snow ball fight, falling down into the snow as we tried to walk across certain areas of it and just being together.

Here are some photos of our adventure.


Happy Father’s Day Tata, we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!
