The Top Ten Holiday Park and camp ground where we stayed was awesome, so much better than the camp in Paihia. One of the great services they offered was daily recycling. This became one of the best parts of the day for Ethan and our neighbours Bradley and Aaron. The recycling man Tony was quite happy for the little boys to ride along with him in the back of his truck and ‘help’ with the daily rubbish and recycling collection. This is pretty much the most boyish activity I can even imagine. Digging around for others discarded treasures, climbing off and on the truck, getting filthy and hanging out with a guy that seemed to love their company. They would be gone for almost an hour each morning and were paid for their time and assistance with fresh watermelon. Ethan thought he was in heaven!
I live in rural Auckland, New Zealand. Two boys, one big, one not so big and 2 boy dogs belong to me and I them. I love Coca Cola in all of its sugar-less forms and I love you internet. I take way too many pictures of my kids and collect them all here. This is what I am doing when I should be cleaning or cooking or doing other 'useful' things.
