The family of our oldest daughter’s chosen one, drove out from Dunedin to their apartment on Lake Wakatipu and as a special surprise, the chosen one’s sister flew in from Abu Dhabi so she could spend Christmas with them as well. It was so much fun to get both families together. We played Krazy Bee Rummy which has been a family tradition for us for years.
We compared the chosen one’s dad to Clint Eastwood!
We of course all played around with technology as we shared photos with each other. And some of the younger set had fun wrestling.
And of course, we spent time out by the water!
It was hard to leave such a beautiful place, especially since we were leaving our girls behind, but we had been traveling for almost two weeks and it was time to go home.
P.S. After we left for the airport, our older daughter and her chosen one took the younger one to the Kawarau Bridge to jump off (attached by the ankles to bungy cords) and high five the river!
