We had two birthdays in the same week. Mine was the big 50 with Eli being 12. Eli had an awesome day Kart racing with the boys.
Future racing drivers. Not sure about all the posing they did, but hey!
For the big 50 celebration the family went back to Mt Cook and stayed at the Hermitage. Gorgeous destination and we raced ahead of a huge winter storm. Rained like crazy for one day and then snow and white out.
Walking in white out conditions was fantastic. We managed a 5km walk without getting lost. Though the track markers (which are a metre tall) only had about 3 inches poking out of the ground.
Then we stayed another day due to roads being closed all over the country. That day was spectacular. Sunny and stunning views.
The Twig and Tale tie back boots were used heaps in our hotel room and made us feel cosy as we looked out the window.
