On Christmas eve, we stayed in my sons family’s driveway and early Christmas day was spent opening pressies with Alex, Sarah, the two grandsons, Ayden and Liam and with Sarah’s parents and brother Andrew. The hard part was keeping Liam on task opening all his presents as he wanted to stop and play along the way. All part of being a 3 yr old.
After Fiona had made croissants with Cheese and Bacon .. yum! we left to catch the ferry from Half Moon Bay to Waiheke, where were to have a great lunch with the wider family at Fiona’s sister Sara and Robs place in Onetangi.
Rob has some new toys in his toy box at the barn so after lunch we went up to the barn and he wheeled out the entertainment.
The Razor: a 4 wheel drive farm bike with roll cages but souped up mechanically. The Shredder: A track driven by a petrol motor steered by a wake board like setup.. see the piccies. Remember too to click on them for hi res.
Lots of fun mixed with some nice wine and great food with great company.
We all made it too the 7pm ferry at Kennedy point in time to get back to Half Moon Bay and to Ardmore.
It was a big day and I was literally falling into bed when I got back to Rafe.
We’re looking forward to heading up North for the next week .. watch for some Northland posts! I hope everyone had a great Christmas.. have a good new year and if you’re on the road, be safe.
