I love this shot! Paul took it from the helicopter.
This is up in the Waihopi Valley, and we call it the spy station. There was always two massive 'golf balls', and no one seemed to have a good idea of what was under them. Well, one day someone went in and broke one as a protest only to reveal a satellite dish hiding under there. Hardly as exciting as aliens.
Marlborough is all about vineyards these days!

Today was the Snow White and the Seven Dwarves ballet production. My girls have been involved in ballet since they were about 4, and it's the highlight of the year for them to perform on stage. This year, like last, we photographed it for all of the parents. Here are just a few highlights for now.
This is my Emily.
Snow White and some rather nasty looking characters. I would stay away from that apple, personally.
This is my oldest, Kimberly.
Three of the seven dwarves, the heros in this story.
My Georgia is the one on the right. She does have a very pretty face too, I just like this one as a legs shot!
So, I've narrowed the photos down to just over a thousand. Silly, isn't it? Paul will be uploading them to a gallery for all you parents to go through. Not sure when exactly, but hopefully soon!
Paul took this one just this week. If I knew my wildlife, I'd tell you what type of bird it is, but I don't. So I'll call it a Feathered Yellow Header. No one call me if you have any emergency bird identifying needs.
This was when we went to Pupu Springs last month. This just appealed to my sense of humour!
