A couple of weeks ago we headed to New Zealand to visit with Jason's family. This is a general post on the Wellington visit and over the coming few days I'll do specific blogs on some of the activities we did while in NZ!
We travelled to NZ via Melbourne which meant Ethan could have a run round in between two 3.5 hour flights. We were very lucky to have an extra seat allocated to us the for both flights. But unfortunately Ethan did not sleep a wink while we were travelling. Luckily Ethan has finally gotten used to using headphones and he could watch all his favourite movies on the iPad!
We got to Melbourne airport and Ethan ran round like a crazy lunatic for half an hour...Here he is just hanging at the airport watching planes (after running around like the crazy lunatic!)....
We arrived in NZ at around 11pm (which was about 8pm for Ethan's body clock). By the time we got back to Jason's parents, had a quick catch up, played with some of the cool toys Grandma had for Ethan and got Ethan down to sleep it was 2am NZ time. I've had more relaxing flights, but all in all it wasn't too bad.
The next few days we had very strange sleep times for Ethan (i.e. sleep in to 10 am, day sleep at 4pm and bed at around midnight!).... but he slowly bought those times back. Although we never got him to bed any earlier than around 10pm. These timings worked for night time activities though - we got to go out in the evening without the 5pm witching hour!
Wellington was a little colder than Perth... here we are all rugged up!
I think this is the last time Ethan will fit in the porta cot!!!
That's just a snapshot of our NZ trip. Watch the blog for some specific posts of the activities that I particularly enjoyed and deserve posts all of their own!!!!
