New Zealand

This is a waterfall by Milford Sound. It is a fjiord
on the South Island. We took a boat ride out and saw
many beautiful scenes.

This is near Champagne Lake in Rotorua. It is like Yellowstone with natural geysers, fumaroles, hot pots, etc. It smelled like sulphur. It was a nice hike all around the site.
This is the Franz Josef Glacier. It's amazing to see all the different forms of nature.

Of course we had to take time to smell the roses. We saw quite a few beautiful gardens. These were in Christchurch.

Kye took his nap most days while we continued on our activities. He was a very good sport considering all the things we were doing. This is also in Rotorua.

Samoan Adventure

Kent took some dental supplies down to Apia to a dental clinic. He got to spend half a day working there with Ralph Downey. The people come in and the first ones get the services for the day.
We went to the market. This is where Nathan got his weapon. It was very cool!

We played at some beautiful beaches. Nathan and Suzie went out snorkeling for awhile and we got to play with Kye. He loved to be thrown in the air.

This is Rolayne on sliding rock in Papaseea. I did some cliff jumping and rock sliding--my first time! It was so beautiful. We looked at all Nathan and Suzie's blog pictures and we recognized many of the places. It was so fun to be there.

Like father, like son. This is at Papaseea when Kent and Nathan climbed up some rocks after diving from the cliffs.
