Well the sewing machine has been working hard and the quilt is almost finished.
In the mean time Mr M&M celebrated a big birthday, one with a zero on the end of it!
I organised a surprise birthday weekend, and all the children would be there waiting for us.
We went to Tokaanu at the south end of Lake Taupo.
|My little sis and Traci|
We stayed in the old post office which happened to be celebrating its 100th birthday. It had been renovated a little so that it resembled a home.
Here are a few pics from the weekend.....
This was the music room and was the postmasters room.
There was also a ski room and a fishing themed room.
But Tokaanu is renown for its thermal activity, especially the hot pools!
These pools are filled with boiling water.
|Little sis and I get some jumping for joy in|
We also discovered these man-made pools fed by water from a small thermal pool that kept erupting.
There were also lots of plopping thermal mud pools
And thermal pits that locals were using to cook food in. The steam cooks the meat and vegetables.
However, the best part of the weekend was this.
It's a hot tub and with the turn of a tap bubbling hot water is pumped out of the ground and straight into the tub.

It didn't matter that it was a scorching hot day, it was great fun!
We did go for lots of walks to explore all the surrounds, there was some stunning vistas.
|Little sis and I do some more jumping on the shores of Lake Taupo|
And we got to have a few more cuddles.....
I'll post some pics of the quilt when I get the binding on.
Have a great weekend everyone!
