We got back from Rotorua today, after an uneventful journey home. We got lunch at Subway and left about 12:30, and got home around 4:30 - first time we have ever taken kids so far and haven't stopped all the way! Eva, who was full of a cold, and perhaps a bit feverish, slept most of the way, and nobody else complained so we just kept on driving.
Our new tents were wonderful, didn't leak (it rained quite a lot) and were roomy and easy to put up. The kids have decided they look like big meringues
