The past weekend was a relaxing and quiet weekend. We didn't get up to too much. On Saturday morning we set off for the city where we first went for a quick visit to Te Papa. It is one of my favourite places to go to in the city and best of all it is a free activity. As always my girls loved it and ran from one exhibit to another. We couldn't stay too long because we had to get Paul to his road relay.
Paul was the last leg of the relay and the 5th runner. Paul would usually be one of the first legs (or so I understand), but he has been struggling with a niggly calf. We followed some of his team mates and at first Paul thought that the gap might be a bit too big for their team.
Dropped Paul off and then we set off for the finish line. We were stuck in traffic a bit and I worried that we might arrive after his finish. Got to the finish line, quickly found a park and thankfully just made it as I could see Paul running towards the finish line. Now I knew Paul ran fast and probably at least twice my speed (which he is able to maintain significantly longer than I could ever dream to maintain), but to actually see him in action as he came thundering past me really put it into perspective. Don't think I will be challenging him to a running race any time soon...

The rest of the weekend was just fairly quiet. What did you get up to?
