We've just returned from a very relaxing camping trip up north. For the first time since we've had kids, we went away with no real itinerary in mind. We just went where the mood and the op shops took us (really! I have such an understanding husband...). Hopefully one day Daniel and Joshua will add this holiday with its camping, digging for cockles, visiting great-grandparents in Opononi, digging holes in the beach and all the other great things you can do in this beautiful country to their collective memory of 'when we were little'. Having a great 2009 already!
