The Princess is in Down Under heaven. We have been doing all those cheesy touristy things we used to shun others for partaking in while on vacation. But when you have a little one, the list of “must-dos” changes a lot.
Lao-Lao couldn’t possibly leave Australia without one of those koala photos, so Addison joined in with her grandparents for the ultimate tourist mug shot. She couldn’t stop petting the koala! There was also a lot of excitement at kangaroo feeding time. Addison was not frightened at all and we had to wrestle her away several times from getting too close to stepping on a tail.
While basking in 30+C temps and sunny skies, we joined the summer school holiday crowds at Sea World. The penguins, dinosaurs and fish were pretty interesting, but nothing beat out the Dora show. Thankfully, Gong-Gong videotaped it so she has been able to relive the highlights on demand.
The one fantastic thing about summer time weather – no cold and flu season! And since vacation is all about relaxing, being able to let down our germ paranoia guard a little has been oh so nice.
Elaine, Aaron and Addison
