We like an outing to the bridge over a busy street at our local university
We ask about it every day when we drive under it
Mum quite likes to take us
she wonders if the atmosphere might even rub off on us
as if we might somehow inherit a love of learning
just by osmosis
We like to play tunnels and hang upside down
Despite the fact that we're a bit noisy
and Mum has to say the 'shh...' word a fair bit
since there are people trying to study in the vicinity
But most of all Mum likes that it's free fun
We just like that it IS fun
We like that we can look out on our beautiful city from here
We like that we can do all this while taking flying leaps in the air
We like that we spotted tuataras
and we had no idea they even lived at the university until today!
We like that they were not at all shy and that we spotted three!
We like that one of them had a really pink mouth
and we like that that fact surprised us
We like that we can play in the park
and be so near to this iconic symbol of our city at the same time
Travelling up, travelling down, travelling up, travelling down
We like slides.....swings not so much, but slides yes sirree.
We like it that we're confident enough to climb all the way to the top these days
We like slides that are big enough for two at a time
Well to be fair..one of us actually likes swings quite a lot
We like to think we are going higher than ever before
and we probably are
And we like to ahem do what boys do
We like to wave at the travellers on the cable car as they pass
and we really like it when they wave back
We like to turn the camera on mum sometimes too
you know...just to get the evidence she was here too
And we all like cuddles in the sunshine
Yes we like them a lot!
But of course we like light saber stick battles too.
Let's face it..we like being boys.
And that's all there is to it.
