Road trip

By PaisleyJade - Saturday, February 21, 2009

Today we went on a spontaneous road trip for a few hours with only 2 of the kids (Master 9 and Miss 2). We ended up going to Taupo Bay (Northland, New Zealand) and checking out some new baby Whippet pups... yes, crazy reason to go for a long drive... but hubby is in love with the idea of having a dog at the moment (see here for more about that!).

The drive was relaxing (I even sewed some softies on the way there and back!), the puppy's were super cute, the surfers were out catching some waves, and the company and conversation was wonderful.

Sometimes I think I take my beautiful country for granted.

When did you last take a road trip?
