In early April we went to the "Ballons over Waikato Festival" in Hamilton for the first time. It was rather a disappintment, as the high winds precluded the hot air balloons from taking off, but Camilla, Louise, Gill and Hannah enjoyed a ride on the fairground attractions anyway.
Then, to celebrate Camilla & Louise's birthday on 19 April, we took another trip across the Kaimai Hills to Hamilton, where we visited Candyland, a sweet factory, and Hamilton Gardens. The first photo shows Camilla and Louise.
