change of circumstances
My parents have been visiting for the week which has been fun (for me at least, maybe a little boring for Amalia). We toured around Raglan, Mount Maunganui, and the Coromandel for a few days. The semi-unexpected thing that happened is my Grandma died while they were here. She got really sick right before they came so they were going to cancel their trip but she was very adamant that they come. So I am flying back to the United States with them. I'm totally ok with that, I have had a really great holiday in New Zealand. Amalia is going to go see the South Island with this guy Keaton who is also visiting from Utah. So that is the new plan. I still need to do some posts about our Mordor hike but after that my posts will all be cold and snowy. We have talked about Amalia being a "guest blogger" so she can still post what she is doing on my blog but we haven't decided, so if you are just reading to check on Amalia, I'll let you know where to look next. Meanwhile, enjoy some pictures of my parents and I fishing on the ocean for snapper. We had the best fish fry ever last night.
