Perfect NZ

It's not just about the skiing, of course there's the fabulous slopes of Cardrona but this special, annual holiday of ours is about much, much more.

Rosa's second year on skis

The boys in blue

On top of the world

Soaking up the sun

Hide and seek

The famous Arrowtown lolly shop

Doing the tourist thing, the Luge is always a hit

Lots of exploring

The view

Making potions with what was on hand. Mostly sugar and dirt...yum!

Feeding the local horses, meet Cookie! definitely a daily favourite.

All the families together in front of the hotel. We try for this shot every will never be perfect but we love it just the way it is.

Always outdoor creating and climbing

Forming new friendships

Beautiful Lake Wanaka.

Always trying for that perfect family shot. Maybe next year!


  1. Wow, what an amazing holiday for your kids to look forward to every year. I have skied Cardrona once- it is like being on the top of the world. We have the same trouble with family shots, so hard to get everyone to commit. Very nice to meet your other half as well, rare to see hubbies on the blog but kind of completes the story I think. melx

  2. Lovely to have a peek at your gorgeous family and holiday Karlyn. Are they your Sisters? Looks like it. Love the family shot in front of the pub and the last one too - it looks like your son has had his quota of photos for the time being. One of my Sister's always managed to poke her tongue out in all of our family photos. Hilarious.

  3. Looks like a wonderful family holiday for you all, what fun! Such lovely photos (you have the most gorgeous smile Karlyn) and the scenery looks breathtaking x
