back in Auckland again.........................
We headed back to Auckland for Paige's 11th Birthday! we took a spot right on the Viaduct downtown Auckland beside the Maritime Museum! very cool to be in the heart of the city. We had Micheal and Tash come for dinner and what a great time we had , they are great people!!! this is Neall's youngest brother. We are sure getting to know the MacLeod clan! good bunch!Tash, Micheal,Emma, Kyle, Paige, and Maya - having a jolly good time!
Orca III at the Hobson Marina on the Viaduct Auckland City Center!
It was great getting together with New Paige again. the kids had a blast ice skating! yep, you heard it all that talk of snow made us home sick so off they went. The kids were so happy they remembered how to skate. "the skating bunch!!"
Before the skating we went off to the Victoria Market.... that was cool, the kids and Paige had lots of fun in the park.see the skytower in the background! this was a cool park!
popcorn machine at the skate rink, never seen this before, just put your money in , it pops the corn a voila - you have hot popcorn! oh so fun!
We are now getting ready for our road trip to the South Island!! this will be a good time. we hope to meet up with O'Vive for one last goodbye! and also ..more MacLeod's - this time mom and dad . they are down in Timoru. off we go landing (?) tee hee
