Queenstown for New Year

After Christmas in Auckland we drove down to the South Island.  After a few days driving and lots of potty breaks for Toby we arrived in Queenstown.  While we were driving my parents embarked on a 5-day motorcycle tour of the South Island (Harley Davidson, in case you were wondering) and five days later we were all back together in Queenstown.  

Relaxing with a Rosé

This was our view for the week......from every room in the house! This made our walk up the steep hill worth it.  This area, known as Queentown Hill is a prime location because it's close enough to walk to the Center of town (and the action) but up above the hustle and bustle at the same time.  You feel like you're in your own peaceful little world. The best of both worlds really! 

Took some time to start writing with my new fountain pen from dad! Such a great Christmas present!!!

Shout out to my man's amazing ribs!!!! 

Couldn't get enough of this view!!! 


Fireworks and champagne on our balcony! Great way to ring in the New Year! 

Dad looking for deer on his NZ HUNTING ADVENTURE!! And my brother-in-laws dog, Oscar photo bombing him 😄. 

Millbrook Resort, Arrowtown is where we stayed for the last two days my parents were here.   This is a beautiful location that feels more like a private estate than a golf resort.  

Evening stroll after a divine dinner at the Millbrook restaurant.

Baked Alaska is making a come back here in New Zealand (why it ever went out of vogue I cannot say) and this one was delicious! 

We laughed, loved, cooked, ate, drank, talked, watched football, hiked, and laughed some more.  That's one heck of a kick off for 2015 if you ask me!
