Down Under - New Zealand Part 2

So here are some more pictures of my son's amazing trip to the other side of the world. 

I hope you enjoyed the pictures from yesterday's post.  I have lots more to share with you today and I can even give a bit more detail about some of these pictures.

Now what trip to New Zealand would be complete without a visit to Hobbiton?  Logan's tour group visited the movie set that was created for the Lord of the Rings movies.  Here is a link so you can read more about it if you like.  Pretty interesting stuff on that site so check it out if you have a moment.  Logan said it was a pretty cool place and I bet it was.  
What a cute house.   I love the round doors.
After touring Hobbiton, they went to the Agrodome where they learned about sheep and sheep shearing.  Here's a link
Logan said it was amazing how fast they sheared the sheep and it doesn't hurt them.  Makes me think of the Pixar animated short film called "Boundin'" about the sheared sheep. 
I love the Cheviot sheep behind Logan with his mouth open.  Check out the horns on the one Logan is posing with. 
Look at the smile on my son's face.  Is he happy or what?  That boy just loves animals.  Seeing him this happy just makes my heart soar with gratitude that we were able to send him on this trip where he made memories that he will have forever. 
Well, that's all for now.  There'll be more coming so stop back here when you have a moment.

Until then, have a great day!
