It's the little things

Finding joy in the little things - that's what and how I can appreciate the good stuff about my life. Sometimes I get so caught up in what feels like a whirlwind existence, and I have to force myself to stop, be still, and enjoy the sweet smell of the roses that line the path. Especially now that I have a little one, it's even more important for me to practice idleness of the mind, on command.

These are the little things that bring me joy.

❥ Impromptu playground stop when Kien spotted swings and slides, pointed and exclaimed "I want to go there!". Jef dropped a U turn and we were there.





❥ Dual sliding.



❥ Taking photos on the pier at Okahu Bay.



❥ Sitting on the dock of the bay (sorry, that just slipped out).



❥ Diving skills of a flyer.



❥ The view across to the city.



❥ Dramatic clouds over Rangitoto.



❥ Kien forgetting how to walk when his dad is around.



❥ The contrasting colours on an Oyster Catcher.



❥ Second playground stop.





❥ Geodesic domes.



❥ Feather chasing.



❥ ❥ ❥ and that was our excursion last Saturday morning.

What are your plans for this weekend? Hopefully those roses get a good sniff :-).

Impromptu playground stops are sometimes the best ones :) Great photo on the pier.

Beaut shots of family at play - you really know how to make Auckland look GOOD. I also love your 'sitting on the dock of the bay' shot :-)
