We traveled a fair bit these holidays. The kids had a blast. So many new learning experiences and awesome memories created.
We took the kids to Whakatane where we lived for 6 years. Still feels like home.
We then headed to New Plymouth, for a wet few days, and discovered the awesomeness that is Pukekura Park and the Lights Festival.
There were a few wet days in Taupo as well. We actually had to buy the kids raincoats here. Did someone say it was summer? A little bit of rain never stopped us though.
And two fun filled weeks were spent at Cooks Beach, adventuring with cousins, swimming till we were water logged, going for endless bike rides and the kids caught their first fish each.
There were hours of fun spent at the Hamilton Mountain Bike Park - lots of dirt, tumbles, laughter, tears and achievements.
In between all this a special princess turned 3. She has now moved up a class in kindy and calls herself a 'big girl' when she wants to do something and a 'baby girl' when she doesn't.
Really looking forward to this year and all that it brings. Hopefully lots of special op shop finds....
