Loose ends

I realized that I have some loose ends to tie up with you, dear readers, before I leave for vacation tomorrow....

1.  My parents returned to the US on Monday.  They had a delay of their last flight, but other than that, things went well.  They are safe and recovering from jet lag.

2.  I AM LEAVING FOR VACATION TOMORROW!!!!  I am not sure how I missed discussing this with you earlier.  I guess my brain was just focused on one life event at a time.  Since my parents' visit ended, I have just begun to think about vacation prep.  We are flying to Auckland, New Zealand tomorrow evening.  We are going on a 12 day Princess cruise stopping in Tauranga, Christchurch, Dunedin (Port Chalmers), Fiordland National Park, Hobart (Tasmania), Melbourne (Australia), and then disembark in Sydney.  We are planning to spend an extra night in Sydney before flying home.

3.  Yes, we are taking Adeline with us.  And may I add, there is SO much more to think about when packing for such a long trip with a baby girl.  I am just *mildly* excited about dressing her up for dinner every night.

4.  We are taking our laptop, so assuming we have easy internet access, I will try to keep you posted (pun intended) as our adventures unfold.

5.  If any of you have traveled to this part of the world before and have advice on anything we must see or do, please share!

Have a WONDERFUL time! I'm sure it will be incredible.

Adam went to Australia and New Zealand last year, but I don't think he'd be much help! LOL!

Your vacation sounds so relaxing - I hope it is! Dave's sister lives in Sydney. One thing we've heard from them is that you *HAVE* to do the zoo. I'll be Adeline would love it, but from the pics I've seen, I think you all would like it too.

Can't wait to hear how it goes!

I'm a Bloggy friend of Mari's. We are in Japan! What a small world, eh? We went for a short visit to Osan a few years ago. I just wanted to stop over and say "hi".

Enjoy your vacation!

Have an awesome vacation! Cruises are awesome, so much fun. Have fun with your little one.
I've been checking in on your blog regularly. You probably don't remember me, I graduated with Lisa. I remember taking you home a few times. I too was voted most friendly, and I also met my husband on a blind date.
Congrats on your 100th post. I love reading other people's blogs but am too lazy to start my own.
Enjoy your vacation, can't wait to see your pics.
