Kayaking and Gondolas

So, we are novice bloggers- as in, we don't post very often- working on that.
I had the chance to join a NOLS group in the Marlborough Sounds for 5 days- weather was beautiful for the most part.  Here are some photos

purge your inappropriate thoughts- this is a legitimate re-entry: the cowboy crawl

leaving the group to go home.

 We have been busy getting ready for our first Southern Hemisphere Christmas- weird.  It is full on summer.We took a gondola ride and then hiked down to the town of Lytelleton to the farmers market and then took the bus back.  Was a fun little adventure.

2 teeth!
We had a great trip to Mt Cook last weekend (I broke the camera, so we don't have photos yet).  We also bought a car!  For under $2k USD- it is seemingly in a good shape for a 2000 subaru.

That's all for now-


  1. LOVE LOVE LOVE the blog. Your photos and videos are adorable. Those dolphins are RAD! Can't wait to see it and you and the girls in person! Love Gillian's 2 little teeth and the picture of Ella carrying the umbrella is super cute :)

  2. You all look like you're doing great! I like the two teeth photo. Are you sure that is Ella's index finger?

  3. Can't wait to see you all in less that a week!! whoo hoo and get some QT with those adorable girls in person!!! and you two of course! can't wait for Kiwi Christmas:) XO
