The last leg of our holiday

 The last morning of our trip, the kids got to go fishing one last time. We dropped Hubby's Mum off at the train station to visit her sister in Christchurch and we headed to the ferry terminal. Hubby took these photos while I napped.






I enjoyed watching the rainbows in the splatters of water outside my window.

And then we were on our way home. It was a long day and we'd be home late, so we figured the kids would listen to their ipods and maybe nap before we got home. We were wrong. So wrong. 

Hubby and I put in a compilation CD he had made for our wedding and we began to quietly (at first) just relax in the front seat and enjoy the drive as the sun set. But when familiar songs came around the kids perked up in the back seat and started singing along.  So we sang. Loud! We rolled the windows down and sang at the top of our lungs for about 2 hours, replaying the 'favorites' over and over and over!

It was a fabulous way to end a great holiday. And it certainly wasn't like anything I'd ever done with my parents! That was one for the record books!
