I am really happy she is getting to go back! Every time I have gone in the last 3 years she has wanted to go, but couldn't. So, I know she is getting pumped. I only wish my Dad was into like her and me. He has never really enjoyed going to the parks, unfortunately. Make sure you get your Dad his birthday button!!
Normally I go solo, but my Mom actually wanted to go this time b/c she hasn't been in 4 years! Crazy i know. So, I'm taking her down for a quick trip. I'll look into getting in Jiko. I've heard nothing but praise for the restaurants at AKL, hopefully I can experience at least one of them and have a glass of wine here and there.
I'm already anticipating your pictures!! Oh, smiley faces are cool...no worries.
