Finally I get to tell you about who we stayed with in Rotorua. Steven and Beth were good friends when we stayed in Johannesburg. Their first son was born just a few weeks before Rachel. We moved to Pretoria when Rachel was 1, so it's been almost 8 years since we last saw them.
Unfortunately Beth had to fly back to SA so we missed catching up with her. We did however get to meet friends of their who have just moved to New Zealand from SA and who are staying with them at the moment. So we had a house full with 9 children.
This evening the children had a great time playing outside.
And the girls loved the dress up clothes.
