The main reason for our visit to New Zealand was to spend time with Angela's family. We were given a week of all 15 of us together at a beach house on the Coromandel peninsula. Beautiful! (Click on any image to see a larger version.)
Cedric got to know his cousins properly. Eva is 2 years older and Tolkien 2 years younger - they were the best ones to play with but he loves them all! (Age range is 8 mos to 14 yrs.)
We enjoyed a few walks exploring the Tauranga area where Angela's parents and sister live.
The three of us also took two side trips to visit friends and churches that have supported and are interested in God's work in Colombia (cities of Gisborne and Wellington).
My mother had her 70th birthday on January 3rd. Since we were all together we put on a party to celebrate her milestone. It was fun to celebrate with her and see lots of other relatives.
