Sky Tower Auckland

We decided to go into the Sky Tower today. The girls had wanted to go up inside it ever since they glimpsed it. They were very excited by the glass in the elevator floor and doors, I have to confess I looked only at the wall. When the lift doors opened out raced Sienna and Denver, no fear at all, while the rest of us gingerly walked to the windows.

Eventually the rest of us relaxed and were able to enjoy the amazing views from the Southern Hemisphere's tallest tower.

Wow wee....! How exciting! Sounds like you are getting out and about and having some fabulous day trips exploring together. That's one thing on my 'to do' list with the gals.

The Word Party

Loving words clutch crimson roses,
Rude words sniff and pick their noses,
Sly words come dressed as foxes,
Short words stand on cardboard boxes,
Common words tell jokes and gabble,
Complicated words play Scrabble,
Swear words stamp around and shout,
Hard words stare eachother out,
Foreign words look lost and shrug,
Careless words trip on the rug,
Long words slouch with stooping shoulders,
Code words carry secret folders,
Silly words flick rubber bands,
Hyphenated words hold hands,
Strong words show off, bending metal,
Sweet words call each other 'petal',
Small words yawn and suck their thumbs,
Till at last the morning comes,
Kind words give out farewell posies....
Snap! The dictionary closes.
