He's back!

Remember how my hubby left me for 9 days to go
down under?
Well...he's back!!

The trip was awesome
(I'm not going to lie I'm a little jealous I missed out on all the fun).
They learned a ton at the conference, got to network with some other pastors in New Zealand and got an overall lay of the land.
We are all so excited to see what God has in store for us in Tauranga!

Anyways, I wanted to share some pictures with you
of our future home :)

Isn't it beautiful?

This is of the beach in Tauranga, NZ
(the city we will be planting a church in).

Aaron and 2 other guys that went on the trip with him
hiked up "the Mount"
(that big mountain looking thing at the top of the picture)
their first day in Tauranga
They said it was the only clear and non rainy day they had in New Zealand.

Everything in New Zealand is super green and lush.
Apparently it's because it rains.
A lot.
Funny how that works.
(It pretty much n.e.v.e.r. rains in Orange County).

here's a view from the almost top of the Mount

So pretty.

the boys
My hubby and 2 of our good friends that will be going to NZ with us

One tree hill in Auckland.
All those little white specks....

are sheep.

The boys also spent a few days in Sydney, Australia.
Aaron and I went to Sydney a few years ago for New Years.
It is such a fun city.

The kids and I missed Aaron so much while he was gone!
As soon as Mackenzie spotted Aaron across the airport she ran to him screaming,
"Daddy!!! Daddy!!! It's my Daddy!"
It was pretty much the cutest thing ever.
She loves her Daddy.
So do I :)

We are so glad to have you home babe!
Love you!

Glad he's back!
NZ is at the top of our travel list. I hope we can keep in touch via blogland and if you're living there once we visit it'd be nice to have a contact there, and a church to visit!
