Mini Vacation Day 2 & 3

 On the second day of our mini vacation Anna made us a super yummy breakfast.
After some clean up around the house we decided to take off to see the local sites.

We started driving and got to the end of the street turned right and realized we had another flat tire!
The second flat in a month or so!
It was an easy fix the tire place plugged it up and only charged $15.00, way cheaper than Auckland.

After the tire was fixed we decided to drop the car home and let Anna drive lol.
We headed to a local beach, Himatangi for some pictures.

The funniest thing ever happened when we were walking back to the car.
A dad was driving away and obviously left a bratty kid behind to teach him a lesson and the kid was running after the car screaming daaadddd, the child was histerical.
We were all laughing so hard!
It must have been hard for that little kid to scream, run and cry all at the same time hahahhaaha.

Grant trying to plank!
He really can't do it.
I think he is too tall.
Its either his head is down or his feet are in the air lol.

After the beach we went to the town of Shannon!

My NAME is a TOWN!
I was so excited =)

Shannon is a really cute town.

What wasn't funny was half way through the town Grant said look there is no drinking in Shannon.
and then the "in Shannon" jokes started.
and that wasn't very funny hahha

Saturday night we went out to dinner to a nice indian restaurant.

Sunday morning we pretty much got up and drove home all day.
Anna had a soccer game so it was perfect timing for us to go. 

Mini vacation...DONE

I'm so happy that you all got to see Anna and Luke before you MOVE HOME!!!!

It looks like everyone have a nice party and visit. Next time you see her will be here in the USA, next year.

You should be honored that they named a town after you, see you did make a big impression on New Zealand.

You do have some really good lifelong friends you've made over there.
Love you, MOM

She sure has made an impression on NZ and made some fine friends... yet one more reason for us to come back and holiday in the USA!!! I hope Grant knows how lucky he is... for Shannon of course!! BUT he gets to live in America too!!

Looks like a fabulous weekend!! Always fun having a weekend away huh??

Take care
