Okay, so here we go. I'll try and explain each picture to you as we go along. This first one is a family picture taken near Eyerton (not sure if I spelt that right, but it's kind of North Canterbury) where we went to visit some friends on Saturday afternoon. Some photos are taken by Abbie, some by me and the first two by our cousin's grandad.
|Yeah, so here's us. Left to right: Ben, Johnny, Caleb, Dad, Mum holding Jacob, Abbie, Lydia, Sophie, me and Danella. Notice how I am like, one of the shortest of us 4 older girls?|
|This is the entire group. You can see some Smithies scattered around! There are two other families, our cousins and THEIR cousins, who own the ten acres we went to see. We are all great friends.|
|Our cousin's cousins are building their house at the moment. The digger arrived to dig the foundations when we were there! Here are some photos (in the wrong order sorry!) of the digger's ingenious way of getting off the truck.|
|He first tips up the truck|
|And turns it around (notice the photographer being photographed?)|
|This is a completely random photo. It is of this awesome laneway of trees right down the length of their property!|
|Here's the digger getting off the truck|
|Almost done.... notice how the front part of his caterpillar treads are still off the ground. This affords a clue as to how he did it. It was quite spectacular to watch.|
On an extremely random note, we had pumpkin soup for lunch that day. I do love pumpkin soup.
