Thursday 14th June ... seems ages ago now actually! Aaron didn't go to school on his last day as we had another appointment at the hospital for his finger. The nurse checked it and dressed it, gave me a pile of banages and back home we went to finish packing.
Lyndon got home from work after lunch and there was the usual mad scurrying around tidying up before we headed to the airport. We flew to Singapore and from there to Auckland. The kids were pretty good on the flight. Samuel watched an animal dvd rather than the entertainment system on the plane.
After getting our rental car we headed McDonalds where we met some friends for lunch. After that we went to our motel and the kids and I chilled (we kept warm by getting into bed with the electric blankets on!) for the rest of the afternoon while Lyndon visited his old workplace.
Saturday 16th was spent catching up with friends. Unfortunately I didn't get my camera out for our visit with Penny :-( Feel bad about that. The kids had fun together and Maddison wrote her name on a piece of paper for Penny's daughter so she wouldn't forget her and would miss her! heheee
In the afternoon we visited some other friends who have kids similar ages to ours. Maddison and Heidi had such fun together (2 months apart in age).
Antarctic centre one day. It was awesome! I really recommend it even if you go just to see the 4D movie! Fantastic and really really well done. :-)
After our visit there and lunch we headed to play mini golf with J and B. None of the kids had played before, so we just let them at it and had a good laugh at their expense :-) B was very stylish with her handbag over her shoulder! (she's a few months older than Samuel).
Now we are at Grandma and Grandad's in the deep south ... but that is a post for another day. Thanks for visiting and apologies for the photo overload! ;-)
