Auckland

We decided to go to Auckland for the weekend for our anniversary. Just for fun we decided to catch the bus, this was interesting (in terms of the other patrons) and made us feel like it was more of an adventure, like two country folk heading to the big smoke on the bus. We stayed at a hotel right by the casino and managed to loose a whole $30 on the pokies before we gave up, this was a little depressing as the guy next to us kept managing to win albeit only $30 in total but anyway it was fun and where else are you going to go late on a sunday night. The hotel had a nice spa bath with cable and sky so we watched alot of the olympic action, and did the regular tourist type things, like the markets and the wharf etc. We went to the local super market where we were by far the minority, it being full of asians, even the buskers out front were asian and when it was time to leave we felt quite sad, which is always a sign of a good trip.

I remember going up to Auckland for the VISA stuff, and you guys came and met us, that was fun. I had always hated it until that last time when I realised that it was actually a pretty cool city. I'll move to Oz with you.

Hi Carly, Happy Anniversay! Is Asher the official name for this little boy that will soon be in your heart, mind, and every other part of your life. I am so excited for you Carly. I am sorry that we will not be there for the event. But we will come up and spend time with you and Asher over the summer. I love the things that you have already made. You are very talented Carly. This baby is going to be so loved by all around him. I think that is such a gift. Remember to let us know.
