How does Santa arrive in New Zealand?

On a bike, of course!!  Merry Christmas everyone! I hope everyone had a great Christmas! It's been a busy last few days with events planned with our family reunion!

Christmas Eve, we went for a really nice boat ride, and hiked up a mini mountain where we got to see some rare birds- WEKA. One particularly liked Josh, and thought about pecking at his feet.  We were able to play on beach, go swimming, and then enjoy a nice bbq dinner.  Here is a picture of Josh with the Weka:

Here is Taylor enjoying a walk on the beach after the hike:

On our "down time"  Taryn and I have taken the kids to a few nice beaches. The kids really liked playing in the beach, and with the hot weather, it has been perfect beach weather!Some beach photos for you:

Tomorrow is the day Josh has been waiting for! He gets to ride in a monster truck, drive an ATV, and go karting... This will be the highlight of his trip for sure!  Hopefully it won't take me as long to update our trip next time!  Until then!
