Last week we had our first family outing to Movies in Parks. These run from February to March and are put on for free by the Auckland Council.
The movie was Toy Story 3 so you can just imagine the excitement in our house at the prospect of watching it outdoors on the big screen!
We trecked through the bush down to Little Shoal Bay and set up our picnic blanket and Rosie and Harry's camping chairs.
We managed to stay for about half of the movie before the kids got tired and we had to come home and put them to bed.
I must say that we did pay the price the next day with tired and slightly grumpy kids but it was worth it for the joy they had in trying something new!
