Word on the street is you can't beat Wellington on a good day. Make that a couple of good days, and it becomes a sweet weekend.

Time For Dancing, a little wander around Cuba Mall, indulging in the best sushi and best pizza in town, Butler's Chocolate Cafe dessert, a 40th birthday at the pub, and a cowboy themed 4th birthday. As Taylor Swift says, "Like, it's exhausting!" And we didn't even make it to the Botanic Gardens to see the blooming tulips. Oh the stresses of life.

Dancing comes first

Cuba mall stroll

Some window displays for World of Wearable arts (WOW) awards on this weekend
Mouth full of chocolatey goodness @ Butler's Chocolate cafe

Now come the photos from the 4th birthday party. These parents put a lot of thought and attention to detail to getting the cowboy theme of the party through! Makes my efforts look pitiful. And these are only the photos of the food. They made a tee pee from scratch, and had the place decorated up as well. A+ for effort. We're definitely keeping this friend. Lol!

Home made tee-pee cake

"Eagle Wings" and "Gold Nuggets"

Look at that! So cute, right?

More food!

Thanks for visiting :)

ahhhh wellington! Wistful memories now of Cuba Mall wandering..and BOtanical garden hookups - I mean flower gazing...Sounds like a lovely weekend there!

But I feel like such a loser mum seeing all those birthday treats and food. I remember i used to make similar wondrous things a loooooong time ago. My later children are stuck with 'dinner at McDonalds, happy birthday you lucky thing!' I suck.
