Here's a few snippets of what we got up to...
On the first afternoon after a wander to Queen Street we decided to do the Sky Tower...
We were lucky enough to see some people doing the Sky Jump. Mr Mischief was enthralled and kept asking for "more jumping" - I sense he will be a daredevil when he's older!
And we were very brave and all stood on the glass floor and looked down at the street 186 metres below us
On the next day was a visit to Auckland Zoo. We have a very similar shot of me when I first arrived in New Zealand in June 2005.
We saw Burma the elephant giving herself a sand shower then her keeper gave her a shower!
And I was ecstatic to see the tiger right beside the glass. I've never been so close to a tiger before and it was great to see all the markings and huge paws up close...
That evening we took the ferry over to Devonport and had dinner there. This shot was taken at the Wharf while we waited for our ferry back...
And I loved seeing the amazing yarn-bombing in Devonport. There was a part of the main street that had each pole/post covered in yarn in various colours and patterns with different adornments.

The next day we took it easy after a busy few days. We took a stroll to Albert Park and were lucky enough to see them setting up for the Chinese New Year Lantern festival
That night I met up with Cat from Catalina's Cottage and Leonie from Sunshine x 3 for dinner. It was great fun meeting some fellow bloggers and will be lovely to see them again in Christchurch in a couple of months!
And on our last day we headed to the airport to check-in then went out to Butterfly Creek. It was definitely worth a visit and a great way to spend the few hours between hotel check out and our afternoon flight. We got to stroke a baby crocodile...
And Mr Mischief held a 9 week old rabbit :-) (Wondering if I should make Easter cards this year with one of these shots!)
And that was us...a great, exhausting, rather warm and busy few days.
Thanks Auckland - you were awesome!
