These were some trees in Aukland by a botanical garden. They were so pretty!
There were a lot of rivers and beautiful waterfalls. We went on lots of fun hikes. This shot scared some of the other girls because I had a shaky landing!
This is the Hamilton, New Zealand temple. It was beautiful. It was so nice to do a session there. It felt like home.
We went to a traditional Maori dinner and show. They sang and danced, then fed us a hungi. This is a dinner cooked in the earth with hot rocks and it was sooooo good!
In the middle of the town of Rotorua in New Zealand, there is a whole forest of redwood trees. It was amazing! That was one of my favorite places that we went.
This is me feeding some kangaroos in a zoo we went to.
The Sydney Opera House
We went to the Shire where Lord of the Rings was filmed and had lunch in Hobbiton. It really was so beautiful. Lots of rolling green hills covered in sheep.

We camped at Warm Springs and there is a natural hot spring and there is a little pool to swim in.

Relaxing and reading by the pool.
Our Jeep tour group. It was so fun. We snorkeled, saw the national park, visited an ostrich farm and did some serious off roading.
Dinner at the Iguana Cantina. It overlooked a water show that was choreographed to music.
Aruba from the plane
The jeep that picked us up at the hotel for our tour. Giddy-up!
Our last day. Sniff, sniff.
Getting ready to make the all night flight to New York before heading to Aruba.
Feeding the ostriches on our jeep tour. I thought I got grabby when I am hungry!
I loved their license plates.
There were lizards all over! We also saw lots of iguanas around the pool.
This is the view from our hotel room. Amazing!
This is one of my favorite shots.
