Family Time.

J and V arriving at 7.50 pm on Friday evening, on a Bombadier Q300. The sky was prettier than it looks in the photo.
Yesterday was a beautiful sunny day in BOP we had 19 friends and family here. 9 young ones ( aged 5 to 16 ); 8 were boys! They played ball games, swing ball, went on walks of exploration and ended up playing board games on the carpet. All were happy and well behaved.
I nearly forgot to mention a yummy treat I was given as a gift by J and V.  I hadn't had them before. They know their Mum's tastes..... only really dark chocolate and sharp citrus, yes! I did share and still have some left.....making them last! ( they look like a sea creature of some sort in the picture )
I added this final embellishment ( a skink ) and have done a bit more quilting on the top half - mostly successfully I think...one more small area of reverse sewing....I want this right.
We are still cleaning up after yesterday; the young ones have gone into the city then later we are all going to walk around the Mt. ( Mauou - Mt Maunganui ).

Lovely to have precious family time.
The countless feet that have walked that Mt! When I think about it, it is a wonder there is any of it left!!
