New Zealand July 2010

the flight over from Perth to Auckland

We had a lovely time back home despite it being the middle of winter!
Our motel had central heating so we were nice & cosy at night. The days were a bit cool but not too bad. Some rainy days but we managed to find things to amuse ourselves.

The girls travelled well, sleeping quite a bit on the way over. Coming home Ella slept half the way after exhausting herself crying because she didn't want to leave. Kate on the other hand was packed & ready to go 3 days before hand. Funny kids!

We went over for my parents Golden Wedding Anniversary celebration which was a lovely lunch with family & close friends. The sun came out after a few days of rain, which was lovely!

We had a spa at the motel which the girls enjoyed most nights when we were back in time before it closed, it was more like a sauna though!

We drove a long way to the place with the longest name in the World!

Kate chose rock climbing, which they both loved

Looks like fun! That's an awesome place name - did you try to pronounce it?!
