Auckland Anniversary Weekend

At 8am on Saturday morning we decided we were going camping. There was a few spots left in the campground at Mangowhai Heads, so we packed up the truck and set off. Keep in mind this is the First Official Jack Family Camping Trip.

We scored a spot in the best campground ever! Families all around us, right on the water and close to the kitchen, ammenities and showers. Plus the weather was amazing, not a cloud in the sky the entire weekend!

This would have to be Ethan’s idea of a perfect afternoon! He had so much fun with his new mates from the campsite.

Ethan discovered that if you dance on top of the truck more people can enjoy your perfomance!

Dave's 1st Swap-a-crate

He is so proud! For those of you who have never experienced the joys of swap-a-crate drinking, let me explain;
The crate is filled with 12 very large bottles of beer, once you have finished drinking them, you can return them to the wholesaler and swap your empty crate for a full one at a reduced rate. Magic.
