A turn for the Better or worse?

Well there comes a time in one's life when his wife has produced hundreds of blog entries and he has done nothing.  Much to some surprise I don't even read them most of the time. Hey I'm here doing it, so I know about what's going on. Maybe when i am 60 I will look back and read them, and think how weird the stuff we did was.

Don't worry I'm not going to ramble on like Katherine does with all the writing and detailed things that have happened. I am going to do one better. Pictures.  It is said that, "pictures say a thousand words."  Be prepared to have thousands and thousands of words thrown at you. And a caption or two under them.

Won't be seeing Temps like this for a while
Or have your eyelashes freeze shut

So we decided to have a round of Golf for 8 bucks to warm up.

This is true
Not so true for travel like this.
First one to see the sky tower in my blog post.

A great morning for a surf.
Now it is final, water goes down the drains in a clockwise formation.
Stop asking now.

Traffic on the way to surf.

They are remaking this video in town:
I'm in some tryouts for the kid at 1:08
and the guy with the gloves dancing at 2:15.
Cross your fingers for me.
Katherine is trying out for the waving at 1:33
 And is this song in your head now?

Hey who wants to have a beer with this shield looking trophy? More on that another time.

We can see a boat from our house!!!

Birthday present

Don't know what this means
This is how she paid for it

Kai, what a sweetheart of a dog.

This is the game for me

This kid went to the top of this sand dune on a boogie board and I only caught the end of the jump.

Taranaki Rugby!

Some photos from the game on Saturday afternoon. The wind caused a few wayward kicks and the torrential downpour mid-game made the ball slip all over the place but then the sun came out and Taranaki won! They were playing Canterbury who are now behind them by one place in the rankings. We had fun and managed to walk there and back without catching any of the rain. The steam-breathing drivable mascot I don't think the photo does justice to just how much it was raining! Line out Go the 'Naki! (They are the yellow and black team.)

Not for the squeamish

Well the long hours of work and planning and helping friends demo sheds and paper shuffling and biking and cooking and eating and cleaning have caught up with us and Dustin has relinquished his right to tell his story from last week. **Note, the pictures are gross so beware if you are a little faint seeing blood... So, last Friday I had worked the early shift and was back at home on a call with a virtual assisting client, so naturally my mobile was on silent, and as soon as I hung up, the home phone rang. (This is a phone that only people who have had a part in giving birth to one of us tend to use... that and wrong numbers, we get a surprising number of wrong numbers...) Anyways when Dustin's voice was on the other end the confusion began. "Hi, I'm at the hospital. Come here now." "What happened??" "I'm fine. Just come up here." (Wheels spinning in my head...) "Are you sure? I think it will take me too long to bike because I
