Sailing into summer on New Zealand's flying fox. :) We might call this a zipline in America, but in NZ the "flying fox" can be found in many of the parks and playgrounds. They can be fairly tame (like this one in Tui Glen Reserve) or long and quite fast! It took my kids a little time to brave up for these playground staples but now they love them. (And I do too. I'll hop on when no one is looking ;) To all my NZ friends, which park has your favorite flying fox? Summer break seems a good time to check out some new ones!
My baby, the girl with the most special heart! You were born to light up this world and you have done that day after day, always with a smile, always so full of life! ❤
7 years ago we received the scariest news - our baby would need major open heart surgery before the age of 3 months. We were terrified, devasted, but full of faith and hope. When Daddy and I handed you over to the doctors on Dec.16, 2011, our hearts breaking as yours was about to be rebuilt, we knew we were in the right place @bostonchildrens and had the ultimate trust in your medical team led by Dr.Banka and Dr.Emani. We knew we had to be strong for you but in reality you were the one that showed us how to be.
I always say it and I truly believe it, you, Kaia Faye, are the strongest girl in the world, stronger than I will ever be. I am writing this with tears in my eyes because of how proud I am of the amazing, kind, smart, compassionate, and happy little girl you have become. I love you the mostest, forever and always❤
Ok...so seriously funny story here, and now we feel like idiots for it 😜. While on vacation in Playa Del Carmen MX, we decided we really wanted to see what else was in Mexico other than that beautiful beach. We decided to take an excursion which included a ziplining tour, swim in a cenote, and a snorkel tour (your typical tourist excursions). Well while in the shuttle with about ten other people, our first stop was the zipline tour. Haha...I'm dying from laughter even thinking about what I am about to tell you! ⬇️
So picture this... your watching a movie scene where these group of tourist think they are being escorted to some random spot out in the middle of the woods...ok you picturing this?!
So this was us, we pulled up to this gate that had 5 locks on....5 MASSIVE LOCKS on this gate. As the driver gets out and takes 10 minutes to unlock this gate (felt like 30 minutes), all of the sudden....everyone starts to murmur... 'What the heck is going on', 'Why is this taking so long', 'Does anyone else feel uneasy about the amount of locks on this gate', 'Why is there a locked gate at a tourist location??'....haha, then Nate said it...'This seems like a scene in a horror movie, where we are takin to the jungle and our kidneys are taken out to sell on the black market'....😜 morbid, but O.M.G...this is a TRUE story haha. Long story longer, we finally got thru the locked gate, and about a 2 minute drive, we arrive at this massive area with a ton more people, and you can see the actual ziplines haha!

[Viagem à Tailândia, dia 6] BUENOS DIAS MUCHACHOS! Dia maravilindo por aqui, espero que pra vocês também. ❤️
(Reiterando: pra quem está lendo no facebook, indico ler no instagram, que é onde os posts serão continuados nos comentários. O post de ontem foi assim)
Hoje fomos ter uma grande aventura no Flight of the Gibbon, que lemos na internet ser uma excelente tirolesa. E realmente, foi MUITO divertido! Eu nunca tinha feito, mas adorei. Os guias foram super divertidos, tudo muito seguro, exceto obviamente meu nervosismo por estar a mil metros do chão em escadas balançantes e etc, hahaha!
E depois disso teve um almoço delicioso, na qual havia uma banda tocando. Eles me convidaram pra tocar um sino com eles na banda, tô feliz de aumentar meus talentos para incluir “thai music star” 🤩
E depois disso fizemos aula de culinária tailandesa. Aprendi a fazer pad thai, stir fries, curry, sticky mango with rice... várias coisas bem fáceis de fazer e bem saborosas! Só tenho que ver trocas de ingredientes que talvez não existam no Brasil, mas tá de boa. ⚠️ Aviso a todos os possíveis crushes ⚠️ Quero informar que tá permitido chamar pra rolês gastronômicos porque agora sei fazer lanchos. Pela atenção, obrigada. ... e fomos pro maior mercado noturno da cidade. Sério, foi a melhor feira da minha vida, e olha que eu gosto de feirinhas. Tinha DE TUDO. TUDO. Obviamente comprei mil coisas e presentinhos.
And that’s all, folks. Não foi um longo relato, mas foi um belíssimo dia pra se estar viva.
Lembrem sempre de se permitirem tentar coisas. Quando foi a última vez que você fez algo pela primeira vez? 😉
