Mini break in the deep South

Finn and I won flights to Dunedin thanks to More FM and Jetstar. So early yesterday morning we set off.

Finn loved the flights and has now decided he'd like to me a pilot/flag collector when he grows up.

When I asked Finn what he wanted to do in Dunedin out of a train ride, a castle visit or the chocolate factory his answer came without hesitation. Choclate factory!!!!!! I told him he'd have to be careful not to fall in the chocolate river like Augustus Gloop and I said "No, I am Charlie the good boy!".
The chocolate factory is Cadbury World and is definitely worth a visit if you are in Dunedin. Finn was the only child on our tour and was suitably rewarded.

We also visited the Otago Museum which was absolutely fantastic fun.
Finn is obsessed with flags at the moment.

We walked so much and Finn did so well. Dunedin has some lovely sights and we definitely want to go back with Colin, Mikko and Kasper.

This was my first time leaving the little boys and Colin did a great job looking after them. Mikko was thrilled to see me back this afternoon, Kasper didn't seem to notice I had gone!

lost photos found!

I just found photos that I had forgotten about from Mother's Day this year. We have a Mother'd Day tradition of going to a particular restaurant on whenever we drive past it Finn yells "Look! There is Mother's Day!"
So here are some photos of my lovely family.

Brother inlaw/Uncle

Kasper rather enjoyed the dessert...

and cousins enjoyed each other's company...... and jellybeans!

With 5 little boys it's always rather noisy but lots of fun!
