Back in October my nephew Lukah turned the big EIGHT, and as I'm a believer in less "stuff" and more experiences I asked my brother Josh if Lukah would like to come to Wellington for a weekend, rather than receive more "stuff". Josh thought he'd like to come and with that I booked some tickets with Air NZ for Lukah to come and stay with us in the big city.
Wellington Cable Car as he had been learning about it at school.
Te Papa next, but in the ended decided to that it had been a pretty big day for him already so opted for the Wellington Museum instead. It's a much smaller city museum rather than being the national museum like Te Papa. We also knew there was a new exhibition called The Attic which was going to have all kinds of interesting things on display (the idea being its a bit like your nana's attic and its full of all kinds of interesting and random things).
What we do in the Shadows. If you haven't seen it yet you should probably go and and see it immediately as its HILARIOUS (and made in Wellington).
After the museum we decided to walk Lukah to the park so he could play, but on the way there Lukah spotted a lady who was selling rides on a bunch of electronic cars. I think the electronic car was probably the highlight of the day!
Tui and Lukah really wanted to go and watch as he said Tui are his favourite birds. Long story short, the Tui was really sick and had lead poisoning and I had to explain to Lukah what euthanize meant. I think I'm going to stay away from the hospital zoo from now on, but at least they managed to save these cute penguins which seemed to cheer up both Lukah and me and bit!
