Auckland getaway 11/04-13/04 (Part 2)

An excursion to Hamilton garden, famous for its theme gardens that depict the history of humain being. Due to time constraint, we didn't manage to explore the whole 58 hectares but only the Paradise Garden Collection.

you know, all of you (inlaws included) really look alike in some ways. like you truly belong in this family. like what they always say, husband and wife looks alike. so in your case, it extended to his family too. wonderful!
