Well my boring Saturday ended up been a great one :)
Jase ended up staying home today and we decided to head over to the Pukekohe AMP Show. We packed up a picnic lunch, lots of snacks and bottles of water and headed on over. There were rides and Animals all over the place. The kids had a blast! We saw sheep, donkeys, horses, cows and alpacas!! We got to let the kids go on a couple rides and then on the way home we went through McDonalds and got ourselves a 60c icecream (still dissapointed they have raised the price on those!) Here are some of my favourite pics from the show ....
While bringing in washing from out the back this afternoon, I noticed quite a few perfect spiderwebs hanging from the trees and fence. I decided the kids and I would catch a Spider Web. If you have never done this before this is what you must do ...
#1--> Find a perfect spider web which is suspended between something ie so nothing is behind it
#2--> spray the web all over with a mist of water, or find your web in the morning when it is dewy still
#3--> carefully place a piece of black paper behind the spiderweb and gently pull it forward so the web gets stuck onto the paper
#4--> sprinkle glitter or flour all over the paper and then shake the excess off and you end up with something like this ...
You could experiment with white paper and different coloured glitters but I really like the black and white look :)
Well that's it for me .. off to blob with an ice cold coke infront of American Idol!!
