On Holiday

Well it's not really a holiday, just a three day break from work and home with the boys while Michelle returned to work this week.

It's been fun and pretty packed with some exciting stuff. Yesterday we took a trip to the Auckland Museum and got and up close view of the largest Tyrannosaurus Rex ever found. The T Rex, named Sue, is naturally quite famous it seems and is on a bit of a world tour. Like most young boys , Jack and Sam are pretty keen on Dinosaurs and Sue made a great impression.

There's some great photos of Sue here.

After some lunch on the lawn in front of the Museum, we went off to the Parnell Salt Water Pools for a cool down. They have a great kids pool there with a slide and fountains which were a lot of fun. While I enjoyed cooling off as well I was able to enjoy some time lounging around pool side just watching them play in the water. It's great now they're at that age where you don't need to be with them every second when they're in the water.

Today we went to the Woodhill Bike Park for a bit of an off road Mountain bike adventure. It was Sam's first time here and he was a bit nervous to start out but he soon started enjoying himself, particularly on the downhills. It was hard work for him on the hills and there was a bit of walking and pushing from me but we got there in the end. Must have tired him out as he fell asleep in the car on the way home!

Just one other ride this week, on Monday, another six miles in about 30 minutes. If that seems slow it's due to it being a 'hill ride'. Found a bit of a loop which I did twice which gives me three hill climbs in all during the ride. Back to work on Friday so will do it all again then.

Have a good week.

That sounds like a great family adventure. That is a beautiful building - very modern. Have a great week.

I've never been to Woodhill but I've been meaning to for a while now. Sounds like fun.

You wouldn't want to bump into Sue out on a training run.

Funny about that photo of the museum - there's hardly a cloud in the sky ;)

Hi Bruce,

Hope your holidays went well, complete with plenty of festive things to blog about on The Kiwi Runner. I sent you an email a few weeks back about an opportunity to try and review ProWash activewear detergent. Now that the holiday rush is over, I thought I'd try you again to see if you are interested.

ProWash activewear laundry detergent is made for your high performance running clothes with "dry fit" qualities. While ordinary laundry detergents struggle to ever truly get performance activewear clothes clean, with ProWash you can quickly and easily clean and eliminate odors, bacteria and stains from your high performance workout gear. It's truly a brilliant new product. In facet, if you take a minute to Google "ProWash (or Pro Wash) detergent" and research it on Amazon.com and running blogs, you'll find hundreds of consumer reviews that will testify to it's success.

Would you be willing to try a bottle of ProWash activewear detergent and post a review about it on your blog? If so, all I need is your name and mailing address and I'll send you a full-sized container of ProWash to experience for yourself. Let me know what you think.

Thank you for your kind consideration and I look forward to hearing from you. Keep blogging and Happy '09!

Warm regards,



Ryan
