Since I had an update here. I hope you had a fabulous Easter, our girls are now on school holidays for two weeks, they are both due for a well-earned rest. In about 10 days time we are going on a family holiday to the Gold Coast, Australia with another family. Everyone is very excited, it is the girls first time on a plane since they were babies(they're now 7 & 9), and they are also anticipating lots of fun at Dreamworld, Seaworld etc. Their passports arrived recently, and that just raised the excitement level a little more. We are leaving right at the end of the school holidays, so they are also pretty pleased to be getting an extra week off school!
During Easter we visited Te Anau, a lakeside town in Fiordland. We took our jetboat and got a couple of days in playing on the lake. It is getting pretty cool down South now, but we all rugged up to keep warm and had lots of fun. Friends of ours were there as well with their boat, so all the children had a great time too. A bit cold now for waterskiing and tobogganing but the kids had a go at fishing(with not a lot of success tho!) Boats look a bit squished in this pic - oops!
