Martinborough Weekend

As a treat to celebrate Mallory's Birthday on the 25th of August and me getting a new job with the NZSO we decided to book a trip to a little town - aren't they all - called Martinborough which is known for its wines.

Here are a few shots of our Bach that we rented.

On our last day there trying to kill time waiting for the only bus to get back to Wellington, we took a walk down by the river.
Happy Birthday Mallory!

When Mallory came back home our need to travel and explore was still with us so we decided to take a trip to Porirua.  We ended up playing a game of mini-golf which Mallory beat me handily.

Cape Cod Summer of 2011

This time around Mallory and I were smart and arranged to go back to the States together although we went our separate ways once we landed.  Here are some photos from my stay at Cape Cod with my Mom, my sister in-law Cara and Kevin, Kell, Emma and Lauren.
 The first day there Kell and I built a robot and  he tried on his new Green Party T-Shirt. Then came the rest of the gang!
All the excitement got too much for Grammy
We went to a Cape Cod League baseball game and got caught in the rain
Auntie came down and we all went out to dinner.  Of course lots of seafood was to be had.

Kell and Lauren were my clam buddies
 and then there was always ice cream!
