Karen's visit

Sadly, our friends Karen, Mark, Charlie and Courtney left yesterday, heading back to the UK (via a couple of days in Dubai). We had such a wonderful time while they were visiting. They were here for 12 days and these are the places we went:

In between trips out there was also a bunch of this:

They also headed out on their own day trips twice - to Sky Tower and Rotorua - while I caught up on things at home. It was the perfect visit with (thankfully) amazing weather and we made some wonderful memories.

 Some memories I want to remember:
  • Watching An Idiot Abroad and eating lots of chocolate every evening
  • "What's it called again? ............. Eton Mess!"
  • The amazing day at Karioitahi
  • The perfection that was our Kaiaua trip
  • Karen's peas!
  • How well the kids played together
  • Karen screaming as she jumped out of the frame at Hunua Falls and then realised she had to land
  • Mark's neon sunburn on his head
  • Karen thinking she could wait a while before putting on sunscreen; being convinced by me to put it on right away ... and burning like mad anyway
  • The delicious dessert platter Karen and I shared, mmmmmmm!

  2. I love the collages you have done!! The pics are fab!! Guess what, not quite Pokenos but we had ice cream today in Dubai! Vanilla, watermelon and tropical flavours!! Thanks so much for having us, I can't tell how much ofa fantastic time we had with you all, thank you again so much for having us!
    Thank you Sara, having one hand doesn't affect me much really, my parents brought me up as 'there's no such word as can't!' So i'm very independant!
