Darby 26/52 v5

Sweet, sassy, and so damn sweet. The hand on the hip is not new but the pop of the foot is, maybe it is all that ballet. It is amazing how little Bonnie Bunny looks as our girl just keeps getting bigger.

In this picture I am in New Zealand, it was really really green. We visited the North Island - Auckland, New Plymouth, and Wellington. In New Plymouth I helped my mom's old boss' (Rachel) partner (Rodney) do farm work, we had so much fun. On the farm we made new fence lines for the cows.

Our last stop in Australia was Port Douglas, we went to the pool each day, it was fun. In this picture I am in the swimming pool on a floaty that looks like a flamingo with my sister. The ocean in Port Douglas is really warm, I wanted to do a science experiment about the water but I did not get to do it.

The adventure continued this week in New Zealand. We enjoyed a little time in Auckland, New Plymouth, Martinborough, and Wellington - traversing the North Island really allowed us to appreciate it's beauty in the Spring. Every city had different fun to offer but Darby's favorite was NewPlymouth by far... in this special coastal town in the middle of the island we got to reconnect with our friends Rachel, Rodney and Weston. When asked her favorite part of New Zealand it was a resounding "Westy at the beach!"

This week we are in Australia, where I cracked my head open 90-minutes after we arrived. We took a taxi to the hospital, the doctors glued my cut closed - I was freakin' out that I would need stitches. My Mom and Dad had to pay $100 USD and wouldn't stop talking about what a deal it was. The cut didn't bother me and I was at a museum shortly after. In Australia we visited 3 places (Sydney, Melbourne, Port Douglas). In this picture I am at the Taronga Zoo eating chocolate ice cream, I loved the Zoo and all the museums we visited in Australia.

Darby spent the last week in Australia, she has loved every bit of the adventure, even the trip to the emergency room for her crazy brother. We went to a ton of museums and enjoyed the usual sites in Sydney and Melbourne, and then we enjoyed a few wonderful beach days in Port Douglas. When Darby was asked to pick one picture of her favorite thing she said it was walking over the Sydney Harbour Bridge and seeing the Sydney Opera House.

I got to see my Auntie this week. We had a yummy dinner and had a slumber party. She is nice and I love her.
