Well, I'm sorry that we've been away for so long so here's a little update and some pics!

At the start of November we went to Auckland. Cassie did a half-marathon and we did some sightseeing and hit up the American Store. The drive from Palmy to Auckland was also sweet! Check out some of the pics below...

This is one of the views on the drive up to Auckland. This is lake Taupo - the largest lake in NZ, and the mountain in the distance is actually an active volcano named Mt Ruapehu - the largest mountain on the north island.

The view from the ground of the SkyTower in Auckland. It is something like the 14th highest tower in the world... it's pretty much the space needle! That speck is actually a person... you can zipline/bungy jump to the bottom of the SkyTower... it was a bit more intense than we could do.

This is one of the views from the top of the skytower... this is the main harbor and the bridge is the Auckland Harbor Bridge (Cassie had to run over that... it was miserable because it is just a big, long hill...).

They had glass flooring in parts of the skytower... this was the view straight down.

This is our stuff we got at the American store in Auckland... it's amazing what you miss... Yes we do actually have somethings left (we are rationing things!).

Welp... until next time!
