Rea Family Update from Aotearoa
Greetings from Uncle Toni, Seini & the whole Rea Family,
March was a great month for travelling for our family. It started off with the great wedding of Seini & Jackson in Bundaberg - a memorable cross-cultural celebration blending the best of Tongan & Maori culture.
Later in March we all returned to Australia for a series of memorable occasions. It started with Aunty Faite's (Seini's Aunty) 80th birthday celebration - those of you who have visited us here in NZ know Faite well. We then celebrated the First Birthday of the son of one of our nieces in Sydney & followed it up with the first proper reunion of Seini's family.
For a break we headed up to Bundaberg, Queensland to Tita, Kuti & family - there we took in the marvellous beaches & a tour of the famous Bundaberg Rum Distillery.
To cap off all the celebrations we returned to Sydney to participate in another 80th Birthday occasion for Moneata Redmond. We have returned just in time for two funerals - one on the 'Eua side & another on the Ma'ufanga side.
I have put some photos on this site but unfortunately the captions for the individual photos didn't save - I''ll try to put them on again later.
'Ofa lahi atu
Uncle Toni & Tribe
