Sometimes it’s fun to do things as a Family – The Winery Tour 2017 GIVEAWAY

January 20, 2017

I have openly admitted on the internet that I sometimes hide from my children and today I openly confess to you, people of the internet that sometimes it’s fun to do things as a Family.

When we do those things as a family,  they don’t always turn out as planned, but it’s always eventful and mostly fun.    For example..the time we lost Jacob at the Hamilton Night Glow (the longest 2 minutes I have ever experienced) , and more recently the Bee incident at Muriwai beach which resulted in my kids falling in the water.

One thing we have not done yet –  as a family, is attend The Winery Tour, I went with a friend way back in 2011.  I think that it would be a great family friendly, fun-loving atmosphere AND The Winery Tour have made it affordable because kids under 12 can attend for free with an adult who has a ticket.

The lovely artists Brooke Fraser, Bic Runga, and new comer Benny Tipene will be performing!  From now until then my spotify app will be getting a workout.   They will be playing old hits along with new music YAY.
