As the kids go to an American based curriculum International School, their summer break is right over New Zealand's winter! Not really the best timing - but we still manage to have heaps of fun :-)
The kids didn't go to school on their last day as we left for the airport at 11am. My sister planned her trip to visit us so she could travel back to NZ with me and the kids as Lyndon had lots of work travel happening. Managed to snap a picture of her, the kids and all our luggage outside KLIA.
Kids and I on the train that goes between terminals.
We spent a while outside the boarding lounge, Aaron and Maddison were on their i-Pads and Samuel ran around and around and around and around the travelators!! Thought it was the best fun! hahaa (fair wore me out!) When we got into the lounge he played with his set of little dinosaurs. :-)
Sunrise somewhere between Australia and New Zealand.
We had a couple of hours at Christchurch airport. We met up with Lyndon's mum. :-)
On the little plane to Invercargill my sister had small lego sets for both Aaron and Maddison - kept them busy for a while.
The cousins had fun together and it wasn't long before they were outside. Aaron was funny ... He'd been inside a while then said he had to go back outside to cool down heheee
That evening Samuel didn't eat any dinner, he fell asleep at the table and had a huge long sleep. He did a couple of small watery vomits in bed the following morning though. Aaron and Maddison went to bed around 7.30pm. Maddison woke at 10am and Aaron at 10.30am. :-). They all had breakfast and after Samuel went outside he lost his breakfast in the garage ... thankfully it wasn't inside on the carpet! Pretty sure it was just due to tiredness and jetlag. The other two rascals were fine though.
So things we have done that first week ...
One day Grandma took Aaron and Maddison to Queens Park for a bike ride to feed the deer and ducks.
Thanks for visiting. Will be back another day with the next installment! :-)
