We left on sparrow's-fart flight on Friday up to the Gold Coast - and squeezed in a lot! Friday visited Byron, Bangalow to visit my aunt and menagerie and Ballina to visit friends - before heading up to our apartment and then back down to Currumbin for dinner with my godmother. Busy day, and the kids handled it beautifully catnapping in our budget-buster-hire-car (Nimbus!).
Saturday we went to Dreamworld and I often lamented on the discounted cost of the tickets still being extremely expensive in my opinion - having only paid for hubby, myself and Eloise (Laura and Olivia didn't need to pay) was $150 discounted. But in retrospect, well worth it.
Dora Seaplanes were fun, we went on twice! Blue Skid-doo - I think Daddy liked this more than the kids! hehe.
Eloise and Daddy went on the super-slinger - that was her favourite ride.
We then went on to Tiger Island and bought the worst lunch I think I've ever eaten. I even succumbed in the heat to buy the girls a slushie in the heat. (First time with soft-drink) argggggh.
Wiggles world. Hmmm.. not what I was expecting. Withstanding the RosyTea Cup ride which was an enormous hit, I thought it was a bit lame. The kids and we were really disappointed with the Big Red Car Ride - not sure if it was because of the 1/2 hour wait for 2 min ride, but yeah, I think if you had no wait you'd think it was OK, not great, just OK.
