After leaving Saturday midday after swimming we arrived in Taupo at 3pm to find Uncle Matt waiting for us. We had just our family and Matt which was really good as he is now in Australia for an indefinate length of time - go Matt!
Esmee just adored him and so uncharacteristically demanded he hold her, give her hugs and spend lots of time with her - she is usually wary at first.
We took him on a bike ride and the kids loved it. Especially when we finally got to the playground an hour after we started.
