Today our main event was a family visit to Te Papa.
Luke left early in the morning and met up with a friend – Dan for breakfast at a place called Neo. The boys and I got ready and we all took the train into Wellington. It was nice to not have to push the pram around – Gramps took care of that.
We met Luke at Te Papa, and we strolled in as one big group – three generations out to enjoy Te Papa. It was such a great museum! So much maori information, which I don’t know much about. It was surprising to me how much maori stuff was in there, I was expecting it to be more like museums at home. There was heaps of great exhibits, and the kids areas were awesome! The earthquake area was really informative, and fun too. Now I know what it’s like to be in a building during an earthquake!
We walked around and went to Monsoon Poon for lunch. Gosh, the food was amazing. I wanted to eat nearly everything on the menu! I would definitely recommend it. The kids meal Lior got was very generous, and I was so pleased that there was not a chicken nugget in sight! It was all great Asian food!
Because we planned to go to the snow at some stage I wanted to get Eli some gloves (you might remember that he grizzled a bit in the snow when we were in Hobart, and I thought he needed mittens), so we searched through heaps of shops and couldn’t find any. Soon enough it was time to head back on the train. It is such a beautiful view sitting in the train looking out to the ocean because it’s on the side of a cliff.
