We decided last night to move our trip to August 2010 for a few reasons.
*August is low season for travel, and since we aren't really going for a vacation in the sun, it didn't matter that it would be Winter. The average high for BoP is 59 and the average low is in the mid-40s. It will be a fantastic break from the 100+ degree temperature here in Texas in August!
*Since it is low season, the rates for the bach rental and car rental are less, sometimes by half!
*And the most exciting reason....our daughter Cowgirl is coming with us!!! Since she is in a public school, it was impossible to pull her out for almost two weeks. But August is our summer break, so the first two weeks of August 2010 will work perfectly. I am so excited that we'll be bringing her & getting her impression of NZ life as well. Not to mention the fact that Little Man adores her & loves spending time with her!
So there you have it...we're visiting in August 2010 and will bring 2/3 of our children with us!
