We arrived in Auckland @ 5 am. on Saturday morning. Keep in mind that we crossed the international time line so we jumped ahead 17 hrs. and therefore lost Friday!! We had a beautiful flight from Auckland to New Plymouth, flying south along the coast to our new home. An ER doc and his wife picked us up from the airport ( in 2 cars since we had 15 bags of luggage) and gave us a tour of the town, and dropped us off in our new flat. The traveling wore us all out, but we knew that we needed to stay active so we would not fall asleep. We hiked to the beach, played on playgrounds, and watched the locals surf. About 5 o'clock the kids could no longer keep their eyes open, so we put them to bed and Brad and I lasted until 6 o'clock!!
