{my girl} Autumn leaves

Apologies for the rather sporadic updates to this blog! The weather here has been rather dismal, and not particularly photoworthy, so that's the excuse I'm sticking with for now. I went back through some of the photos I took while we were in Auckland and found these cute shots.

One thing we miss out on here in Brisbane is the glorious colour of autumn leaves, so I was keen to find some we could play with while we were there.
Miss TikiBoo and I went to Cornwall Park one Sunday afternoon, to meet some friends for coffee. We arrived early, so took the opportunity to have a little fun, dance in the sun, throw some leaves around and take some photos.
Cornwall Park was one of my favourite places to go as a child. It's a gorgeous domain located on of Auckland's many volcanic cones, One Tree Hill, and is partially grazing for sheep and cattle - delightful in spring when the lambs and calves are around. It's a lovely place to spend a sunny afternoon, there are walking tracks, places to picnic, historic buildings, plus trees to climb and hills to roll down, both of which our girls enjoyed immensely (until one got stuck in a tree and the other slipped over).
It's also a very popular place for wedding photos - we saw 4 brides in the short space of time we were there, including a very cute Japanese girl wearing red converse sneakers under her dress! We grabbed our iPhones to try and get photos, but we weren't quick enough.

Here are some of the photos I did manage to take...Miss TikiBoo in action!
