We are here!

If you can believe it, we are finally here! It was a bit of a rough start, as Taryn forgot Jordan's passport on the printer of the computer, and had to drive the whole way back and be back before 1:30... our bags were checked at 1:28 pm, at that point we had to RUN to our gate after checking security, where we just made the plane by two minutes.  Yes, we were the family running through the airport!  The kids were so well behaved on the airplanes, and really the long trip was a lot easier than I thought! We did get some luck as there was ONE seat open on the plane, and it happened to be near us, so Taylor had a little sleep on it!  

Jordan was lucky enough to hand out "lollies" on the plane! We arrived in Queenstown after 33 hours of travel, a lot of stress, but a lot of fun! Here is a picture of the kids outside the last airplane we went on! 

We rented a car and here is the kids in it, on our drive to Wanaka! They were in remarkable good spirits!

Today they got to meet their cousins for the first time, and also got play cricket which they LOVE... I have a feeling we will be playing a lot of cricket here, and we will be teaching their friends this summer! Today we also got to play in the sprinkler:

The Jet Leg has been okay, Taylor is having a hard time adjusting, and I was up with her from 2 am until 4 pm... Tomorrow, more family arrive so the kids will have even more family to play with!
