In December of 2005, a little over a month after we got married we went on a trip for a family reunion in NEW ZEALAND!.
It was the first time I had ever been on a plane because I had sworn I would never get on a plane in my life. Well that didn't work out so well.
It also didn't help that before we left New Zealand I had a nightmare that our plane crashed! UGH.
16 terrifying hours on a plane the next day. I made sure to call before we left to tell my parents I loved them in case anything happened and bawled on the phone.
I was sure we were all going to DIE on the way home!
Well here are some pictures from that trip!
Weird little plant I found
My Mil Fil and Sil
The hotel we stayed in, in Auckland
The strangest looking trees I have ever seen! They look too perfect to be real, but they were 100% real.
I look like such a baby! I was also 10 weeks pregnant with Judah! This was a dinner "cruise" thing and it had the BEST mussels I have ever eaten!
I wanted to swim with these people in the river!
First time I had ever been to the ocean! It was fun! I was playing fetch with some random dog lol.
Jelly fish I found on the beach!
Best place for fish and chips ever!
Emily and cousin Hannah.
Jonathan and I.
Miriam and my FIL.
Fil, David, Matt, Emily, Mil and Michelle in the background.
So thats only a few of the pictures I took :)
Also, did I mention, I had the WORST allergies while there. I was so miserable with allergies and morning sickness!
