We decided a few weeks ago to have an American day where we would drive around and take photo's of things that remind us of America. So here we go. Please note, all spelling will be in the Mother's English.
Would you believe it but 5 minutes from our house is an American football field. This definitely reminded us of the States.
If you can't see the sign I'm holding up it says, "Hershael." This is Hershael York avenue. We pass it most days when we take the kids to school. What a wonderful reminder it is of the love shown to us by Dr. York while in Frankfort, Kentucky.
KFC is not the same in NZ that is was in Kentucky. But passing this sign reminds us that we have been there, and that our hearts are still somewhat there.
We spent an amazing 3 weeks before we came home in beautiful, northern California with our dear friends, Ben and Chelsea. We experienced Alta, Sky Mountain, Lake Tahoe, and Yosemite national park, beautiful, beautiful, beautiful.
Cornhole, that wonderful American game we learned. We came home wanting to make some, and what do you know, our neighbours, had already made some. All I had to do was paint them up, and only one colour came to mind, Kentucky blue!!
No, I am not worshipping the sign, but almost. This sign reminds us of the four and a half wonderful years we spent in Kentucky.
Never went to Wisconsin, but these burgers are quite good. So, that was our first America day. Just an excuse to think about you all, not that we need excuses. How about one of you doing a New Zealand day and go and take photo's of everything that reminds you of NZ :)
Now a couple of local scenery shots. This is looking down on Wellington harbour, Wellington city is in the background. We are up on Wainuiomata hill, about 8 minutes from our house.
Anna-Marie and I on the Petone wharf. Wellington city again in the background. Petone is about 10 minutes from Naenae.
