Well we are back from our fantastic holiday to Queensland. A bit of a hiccup to start with. Our plane was meant to leave at 6.55am but due to really bad fog - never seen anything like it, then having a plane but no crew ...we flew out at 2.30pm, arriving around 5pm. so a day gone. But we made up for it.
we went to Movie world 2 full days and 3 half days, that was our favourite and the kids just loved it. They went on so many scary rides. I ended up going on the batman spaceshot ...twice. after seeing younger kids doing it I thought I really can do it. well you fly and mean fly up 60 metres and then drop ...Madeline & Sebastian were with me waving their arms about, pointing to our car ..me I just hung on and dont remember seeing anything cause my eyes were shut !
Seb wore his Green Lantern costume on the 2nd day and the the last day we were there. The "Real" green lantern was very impressed with him and spoke to him at great length and also arranged to meet him later. On the last day we saw him again and by the end everyone knew him and were talking about him. even when Scooby and Shaggy went passed in the van, Shaggy yelled out " hey Sebastian, see you later". we hadnt even seen shaggy by then, and one of the photographers said all Green Lantern was talking about was Seb. So that was very special to Seb. On the last day Mad & Seb got picked to open up Movie world for the day, and were ther with all the characters, got their photo taken and appeared on the big screen.
we went to Sea world for 2 full days, 1st day the kids swam with the dolphins and had a blast. got their photo taken
with them. We also went on heaps of rides and saw the dolphin, seal and waterski shows.
1 day at Dreamworld with more rides, they would get off at the exit and run around to the entrance if they liked the ride, which was 99% of the time. We also went to see the Big Brother house, but since its on now we couldn't go, but did see the stage where they film the Friday Night Live and eviction shows. Also went to the BB shop and had our photo taken in the diary chair. After we left we thought we would see if we could get tickets to FNL that night, by pure luck they had 6 left so we went. we didnt have time to go back to the apartment to change so quickly went to a target and brought an "ironman - superhero" costume for Seb and clothes for Mad. It was superhero night.
we sat in the front row and Seb was on stage during the breaks with Fitzy and Mike doing superhero stuff ..he also won 2 drink bottles. That was a great night ...expensive by time we got tickets and new clothes, but worth it.
On the Sat we went to Gympie on the way stopping of at the eumundi market and stayed with Debbie ( cousin ) and all went to Aust Zoo on the Sunday, as we were walking out of the shop we saw Bindi Irwin, she spoke to Mad for about 10 minutes then she did of photo with both of them. we also got the chance to feed the elephants...
3 half days at Wet 'n' wild, more rides and slides and the wave pool. It gets very tiring climbing the stairs to all the rides - me I just sat and watched ...took photos. After lunch we went back to Movie World.
Our flight home was also delayed an hour, so by time we got the luggage and car and drove another hour, we were finally in bed at 2.30am Sat morning.
Our holiday is now over, stuffed toys, t-shirts, souveniers, photos and memories galore ...
