and some more
These pics do go back a ways. We have:
1. Adelaide being admired by her Dad and two second cousins (or is it third?)
2. Boston atop Mt. Te Aroha
3. Bashful Boston now hiding behind Little Laide. We're with the wonderful Hale family in Te Aroha where we find it most hard to leave.
4. Hiking with Mama atop Mt. Te Aroha
We then mission-ed out on our first family overnight hike. Little Laide was awesome while I complained a little. I figure someone has to. Mountain Dad had to carry everything else and didn't moan a bit. He was even dragging us up hour long detours (definitely the path less traveled) to see old Kauri tree's. They may have been worth it.
