Weekend diversion

This weekend we had a much-needed diversion when we went to Hamilton to visit family. We left Saturday afternoon and came home this afternoon. It was a very nice time.

Hamilton is colder in winter and hotter in summer than Auckland is, and Saturday night was among the coldest nights I’ve experienced in New Zealand. Locals told us it was exceptionally cold, and one even talked about breaking off huge icicles this morning. Nice. Jake spent the entire night wedged in between us for warmth.

But the time together was nice, as always, and it made for a good break from everything. Tomorrow it’s back to that “everything”.
