We spent the evening with Mark's sister Sharon and her family. Keiran was kind enough to share his motorbike with his cousins.

Matthew and Joel slept over at Aunty Leanne and Uncle Chris' house which they loved. Uncle Chris is a Star Wars fan so the boys have a great time playing with all his Star Wars stuff. We went back into Wellington to pick them up and spent the day with my sister Leanne. You can see Wellington City in the background. It really is a lovely place on a beautiful day.
Wellington is New Zealand's capital city so we spent a day visiting some of the interesting places in the city. This is the children outside Parliament. Joel even got to sit in the Prime Minister's chair in the debating chamber.
We enjoyed our time in Hastings spending time with friends and trying to do some things that we have missed. This is Matthew picking apples at a friends orchard.
We stayed on the campus of our home church which is an old camp. This is the kids playing on the creek.
This is a hill just outside Hastings called Te Mata Peak. It is also nick named The Sleeping Giant. Starting from the right you can make see a face and then a body, sort of.
