Kiwi Mummy Bloggers

Yesterday morning I got up incredibly early for a Saturday to get ready for what turned out to be a FANTASTIC day of fun and friends at an awesome Kiwi Mummy Bloggers lunch in Auckland.

I started off early to pick up Paisley Jade and Jacksta-B so we could meet up with Kiwi at Heart at her place. My outside temperature told me it was 2C and there was certainly a lot of frost! But the day turned out to be a stunner and certainly gave us fantastic weather to drive with!

PaisleyJade doing what she does best!

We stopped in Albany for a quick loo & coffee break, it was also good to let the kids stretch their legs (and for Riley to get his tantrums out!)

Then we carried on and arrived at The Mediterranean

Bloggers started arriving and it was like meeting up with old friends! Everyone pulled out their cameras .. we are all bloggers!!!

And we got our hugs and chats and getting to know each other going!

Catalina's Cottage, Babble & Snaps & Kiwi At Heart

The restaurant was AMAZING! The had a wonderful waitress look after the kids like they were celebrities and I hardly had a peep from them! Riley & Abbey thoroughly enjoyed the attention and food and drinks and free rein of the entire restaurant!

Then the food arrived! Oh My Goodness!! I was incredibly sad when I had finished mine as it was delicious!!

I didn't hear anyone say the food wasn't devine!!

We had laughs, and more photos, name tag sharing and even prizes!! Then we all went our separate ways and us Whangarei ladies headed back home.
Thanks to ALL the amazing Ladies who I met and chatted with and had so much fun with!! What an awesome day! Times like that certainly make me incredibly happy that I decided to become a blogger!!

Loved meeting you Tracy, and your kids (and that waitress) were awesome! Hopefully it's not too long before another get together gets planned!
