The North Island Farm

The hillsides are to die for!

10 °C

Hello everyone! Unfortunantly, the weather has just been aweful with rain, but you'll still see the beauty of the land! The second day I was in Wellington, we left early to visit a farm (the brother, Andrew, of Jackie owns the farm). The family has 3 children (yay!). There is Samantha, aka Sammy, at age 7, Charlize at age 4, and little baby Ben at 7-9 months... not too sure on that one!

We hung out and watched movies, Sammy took me on a walk to see the chickens and her puppy Bella, and we ate a delicious pasta bake that was like lasagna with shells. Sammy said we were like sisters, because we both have blonde curly hair; I happily agreed. Here's the gumboots (or wellies, whichever tickels your fancy), and the chickens we went to feed.

This morning I was woken up by a rooster (which was GREAT!!); I literally smiled when I woke up. Next, the kids climbed all over me, we played games, watched Dora the Explorer, and welcomed everyone who sleepily entered the living room.

Sammy was nice enough to ask me if I wanted to go for another walk on the farm and beyond, so I said I would love to. She even drew us a map! How cute is that? This is her with the map, being my tour guide, followed by us at the top of the hill by the gate and some scenery.

On our way back, we said hello to Tom the neighbor, and went to pet his cute cute cute puppies! They were so happy, and reminded me of Sparky when he was that size - so fluffy, happy, and stinkin' cute!

Ok, two updates in one day is quite a bit, so I'm going to get off this stinky computer and hit the hay - haha, get it? OOooohh no. That's a sign for me to go to bed haha. I love you all very much, and I'll be doing some fun (and typical Kate stuff) tomorrow so look for an update on that as well! Make sure you read the post before this, because it is new as well.

Cheers!
