One of the perks of living overseas is meeting all kinds of interesting people from all over the world.  Some of our friends here are military from New Zealand, they have a daughter who is a little under one month older than Miles.  Last night, they invited us to a cocktail reception onboard a frigate.  A frigate (pronounced frig-it) is a huge military ship.  This monster looked pretty ominous as we approached at twilight, but the atmosphere on board, not to mention the free-flow beer & cocktails, more than made up for it.  Tim was stoked with the NZ local Tui (not to be confused with Toohey’s) beer, which actually contained some hops.  I liked the white dress uniforms on the sailors.  We all enjoyed the traditional Maori haka, a warrior dance.  So thankful to have such interesting opportunities!
