Two more days of Adventure!

Hi everyone!!
Yesterday was a busy day, where we took the kids to tackle their first mountain (mt. Iron)... Taryn and I honestly didn't think the kids would make it to the top, but with a little whining and some bribing about being the only kids at their school to climb a mountain, they both did it!  They were both very proud of their accomplishment (as were we!).  The rest of the day was spent visiting with their cousins, and playing their new favorite sport-cricket.

Here are some pictures of Josh and Jordan at the top:

Today, we ventured off to Queenstown, which is about 1 1/2 hours from Wanaka. Here we went up the Gonala, and went Luging down the mountain! The kids loved this (so did Taryn!) And then we watched their older cousins Budgy Jump! Jordan claims she wants to do it, but not until she is 16.  Here is some shots of the excitement today!

Finally we went to the park for some leisure time, so here are some photos:

And finally a little glimpse of paradise that we see everyday! This picture was on our drive home from Queenstown today.
