Our folks are here to visit

It's so great to have Jake's parents here for a visit all the way from Kansas.

So far Jim and Adena have taken in a tour of Parliament, an amazing Pheonix soccer win at Westpac stadium, the delights of lawn bowls, lots of walking, some tasty Kiwi treats such as pavlova (thanks Heidi) and Cheerios (thanks Greg), and of course some good New Zealand wine and beer. Lots more to come, so we'll offer an update again soon.

Just don't let your folks sample any of that tinned spaghetti! Guaranteed to ruin their holiday.

You're lookin' good out there, guys. Sounds like a great time. Weather looks good too. Enjoy every minute!

We are definitely enjoying the weather. And not to worry -- we wouldn't feed them tinned spaghetti, but we do plan to introduce them to Marmite and fairy bread.

Aaargh...oh no not fairy bread, Jamie! That's almost as bad as the spaghetti. Your folks will think as far as food sophistication goes, we're nothing but a bunch of Appalachian hicks!!

(Note - Before I wrote that, I had to carefully look up my atlas to confirm that Appalachia is not part of Kansas. Phew, it's not.)

I don't know, "Marmite and fairy bread" sounds pretty interesting to me--
