I had been waiting for my family to visit and now they have been and gone !
It was Mum’s second trip to New Zealand after seven years. She visited with my sister and hubby. My brother joined them flying from the Solomon Island.
This post is a collage of sweet memories during their visit.
How time flies.
Mum’s first try on driving a ‘car’ (scooter) for easy access at Botanical Garden.
A kind neighbour offered us free grapefruits. Pick your own.
A visit to Otara market in the rain.
Mum & sis at Fo Guang Shan temple in Flatbush.
Fresh Clevedon Oysters – I seemed to be the only one enjoying it.
Wonder Women – Four Generations.
A family portrait.
Looked like a lovely family reunion, Jess. Hope your family had a great time visiting you in New Zealand and they enjoyed the sights and sounds. Nothing like spending time with the ones who matter to you. With them, it always feels like home. Take care 🙂
Yes, Mabel. Always nice to have family around. They flew home yesterday. It is now back to me and Toby only. 🐶
