                 Its Holidays.....

Labour weekend brings with it all that is good about not working to breaking point  and it's about taking a break.
1. The Holiday Celebrates the Achievements of Workers.
2. It Is Closely Linked to Labor Unions & Was First Celebrated in the 1880s.
3 It celebrates the introduction of 8 hour  working days  and the working 40 hours a week rule.
I certainly had a lovely break with  the Grandchildren

The first outing was the annual Wanaka Rotary Duck Race.

Of course one little blossom can never resist the urge to pick the flowers...

The next outing planned for after a breakfast of waffles. Yes it was off for a Picnic 

The bread rolls with cold meat from last nights leg of lamb were very much appreciated . By the local ducks....Oh My.

It was a beautiful day Hot sunny and a bonus was a young family came up to the rock behind us and shouted WOW we found it..we went to investigate and there was a geocache It was a plastic stone hidden under the rock The stone opened to reveal the tiniest geocache note book...There was great excitement.

It has certainly whetted the children's appetite to go searching.

After the picnic it was off to the big racing car track and to do a Dinosaur safari...

It's such a wonderful thing to do on your day off ...spend time with children YOUNG and OLDer

Family ..It can bring so much joy It reminds you that this is the reason you work so hard and try to give so much .
It is a love that never leaves you.
I look at all my children and still see them as the babies they were. 
I am grateful for the daughters in law  my sons have brought into our lives and son in law our daughter  has brought into our lives.
I also see them all in their children. 
It sounds so funny when I talk about 'The Kids" because in 3 weeks the youngest kid will be 30.

I see our kids, now so clearly reflected in our Grand children. 
I am so glad I took myself away from the lawn mower,the garden fork, the rotary hoe ,The vacuum cleaner and the mop.
I am glad that I left all that labour and replaced it with the joy of Family...

 ....and you know at the end of the day we all got to sit in a beautiful garden and eat frozen yogurt with fruit and enjoy the labour of love created by someone for us...I do hope the workers get to have a weekend off.
