Iggy’s granddaughter Aria is the only grandchild we have living in New Zealand. Yesterday, at Palmerston North’s Esplanade, we indulged ourselves, doing what grandparents do. Iggy lives by the philosophy that it’s never too late to have a happy childhood, so he had as much fun as Aria. (We both did, actually.)
We walked through the autumn leaves. (Thank you for the image, Renee.)
Iggy, Aria and Johnny fed the ducks.
Lots of people had fed the ducks before we got there. The ducks weren’t hungry, but it seems that Iggy and Johnny were.
Iggy and Aria climbed up to a platform for a view of the water. (Another lovely photo, thank you, Renee.)
Aria loved going down the steep and slippery slide with her father …
…but she also showed us how much she loved swooshing down by herself.
