BBQ at Glen and Kates

had a great BBQ at Glen and Kates today, helped break in the brand new BBQ! (helped get it dirty, and then left...) Ella had a great time playing with all Tom and Joe's toys, and as a special treat Ella got IceCream! but why do they make it so cold!!! Ella kept shovelling it in, but then grabbing her mouth as it must have been making her teeth hurt!!! Ice cream headaches all round...

dont ask who dressed me thismorning

Talking on the phone to Bam-ma
and there may have been issues with getting dressed thismorning.

its alive!

let go of the power cable Ella....
(No seriously, no power cable involved, just Ella worked out she can turn on the dehumidifier and the fan blows her hair up in the air...) maybe we could gel it in that position and design a new hair style...

captain hook

thats better Nat, where is your hook, Captain? hhhaaaarr hhaaaar hhhaaaaar

Dress up

at the Beamish household

Ella the princess and Sophie loafa the dreadlock fairy

then nothing like a good dig in the wet sand pit after the big kids have been in there creating lakes and erupting volcanos with the garden hose...

Nat the Tiger fairy. (yes I was confused too...) hopefully a stage that he will grow out of...


up the peak with Grandma and Barry.

and when it gets too steep, and i'm tired, i can just talk Barry into a shoulder ride...

party at uncle mikes house

Poppa taught me some cool balancing tricks and how to do a forward roll on the trampoline, and Lachie drove us round the lounge on a train we made from all the little chairs...

new tricks

thanks grandma, for teaching me how to blow this recorder, now when ever i see one i am able to make a LOT of noise...

oh that, no that wasn't me, um that was that rolly dog, not Ella, she wouldn't run down the hall with the loo paper spinning off the roll in the loo! I just happened to be walking past and noticed the paper on the floor Daddy...

Weekend fun with the Beamish's

Saturday morning sleepin with Finn and teddy's... Don't tell Mummy, but Daddy took me to McDonalds and I had a burger all of my own, and fries and was then super charged for an hour of fun in the playground!!!!!!!
Nat and Sophie were having a ball too.
Everyone was supercharged, in more ways than one, look closely at Sophie's hair, all up on end with the static charge from the warm plastic slide... shocks all round!!!
Ella had a ball on the slide too...

Then we went fishing at the Napier pier. Well Finn went fishing (with a support crew of at least 5.) The girls just hung out in the porta cot, and threw bread to the sparrows. No fish caught this time but Finn got his cast down pretty good, and could cast just about half way across to the inlet! (no eyes or fingers missing at the end of the day either which was good.)

gisborne wine and food fest

Ella getting a ride on Uncle AJ's long board, (thanks for the style tips uncle Cole, they came in handy on this occasion.)
and then this one might come up again later in Ella's life, Dancing on the tables at just 20 months... look out

Weekend in Taupo

Have just come home from a great weekend break in Taupo, to catch up with Chris and Ness. The weather was not all that crash hot for skiing so we opted for a bush walk instead, and a bit of mountain biking. Saturday afternoon walking in the bush was much more pleasant than being out in the very strong wind... and was followed with a nice swim in the hot pools at Tokaanu.

Cool man, Chris brought along her long board, and all 3 of us can fit on for a ride at the same time!

Nat and Ella throwing stones into the lake, and Guy flying Nat’s kite. (which was obviously not as exciting as throwing stones.)
Nat has quite a good throwing arm on him. Guy was having a bit more trouble keeping the kite airborne…
Bush walk followed by a lovely swim at Tokaanu hot springs.
Hitching a ride
Anyone would have thought it was Christmas, with strawberries, ice-cream and mini pav’s for dessert
And then when we got home, it was so hot, someone needed to cool off in her own private spa pool…

hair do

I was such a good girl at the hair dresser the other day, that she even did this fancy thing to my hair after she had cut it.
I must have had the prettiest hair at day care that day...

the photo doesn't do it justice Daddy...

helping feed the lambs

had to help feed the lambs today at the Beamish's house...

very important job that required loads of concentration...

new game

this is a trick learnt at day care... honest.

what started off as some harmless water play,

ended up being a bath for one!

Grandma and Poppa's visit

Grandma and Poppa came and stayed for the weekend, taking Ella here there and everywhere. (or was that Ella took Grandma and Poppa...)
Poppa built me plenty of castles to kick down...

here you go pussy cat, have some milk for breakfast

Look out Poppa I'm going to get you wet!!!!!!!!!

Ella took control of the hose, and didn't need much encouragement to start cleaning the car... good effort Ella, keep that up...

the girls and their coffee... (Ella is only having the fluff off the top, honest...)

such a helpful little girl

Ella just has to be doing what Daddy is doing or maybe she really is just that helpful...
tonight she had to help pack the dishwasher...

I dropped Ella at daycare, but when I went back to pick her up all I could find was this kitten...

pot head

no not that sort of pot, just a kitchen bowl on my head!!!
Ella got bored this evening waiting for her dinner and had to play with the pots/pans in the cupboard...

Ella the ambulance driver

I wonder if Ella was being an ambulance driver here, poor bear is looking a bit sick, and was being rushed around lying down on the car…

sleepover, and Aston

Don’t know who was more excited about the weekend, Ella or Grandma, or maybe it was puppy Aston, but anyway Ella had a great time on holiday with Grandma for the weekend. Her first weekend sleepover!
I went to Wellington for the weekend and Ang had some work to do on Saturday, so I dropped Ella off at Grandmas on Friday, and she stayed the weekend with Grandma and Poppa.
Ella wasn’t to sure of Uncle Cole and Aunty Tania’s new puppy ‘Aston’ but did have a little pat, and lots of pointing and Woo woo-ing…

whos a clown?

guess what game we played at day care today?
it all started because one of Ella's friends has a broken arm and I assume the face painting was a nice quiet inside game to play with your arm in a sling... anyway all her friends, Ella included, then had to have their faces painted so they could all be happy little clowns together...

guess who we bumped into down the street

Hilary and Doug just happened to be cycling up our street yesterday, and Ella and I were off on our bike about to go for a ride, when we crossed paths... Ella was excited to see a Dog getting a ride on the bike just like she was getting a ride on Daddys bike. When we rode up for a closer look we discovered that it was 'Monty' the dog with Doug and Hilary, doing some sight seeing by bike in the Hawkes bay. So we all flagged riding and stopped for coffee!

looking at me?
