Gold coast continued....

This morning dh was eager to go shopping. Why....i couldn't tell you. i wasn't keen, I can shop at home, and to be honest I hate shopping with kids when dh and I are together because they muck up more. The expedition turned out to be not to painful which was a relief, however we got lost trying to find our car lol. After wandering around a fair bit we finally figured out where it was.
Today was an extra exciting day for me as an old friend was coming up to visit. Anna and I used to do tafe together in 1997 for 2 yrs, then lost touch until facebook reunited us in 2008. since then we've tried to organise to see each other but it never happened. So today she was making the special hour or so trip to our resort to see each other.
Dh played with the kids in the spa while bub slept and I waited for Anna. Finally with a screech of her car she entered the resort. Uh oh I thought what happened. DH came back up stairs and The kids and i went to greet her. She was stressing as her car was playing up and we were worried she wouldn't make it back in time to pick her daughter up from school. Thankfully it turned out it was jsut the air con. So we took her son and miss 4 and little man to the spa area so we could chat and eat jatz with french onion dip ( a favourite that we used to eat on train trips home from tafe) .
After Anna left we gathered the kids and drove quickly to Surfers Paradise to ride on the Aqua Duck.
We couldn't remember where abouts to board but knew it was somewhere in Surfers. Parked the car and ran for it. Bub was in the Ergo and the other 2 had to run along. Phew , made it jsut in time, and on we went. Miss 4 and Little man were so excited. Poor Bub however was a little unwell with high temps and wasn't very excited. They loved when it went into the water, and especially loved it when they got to have turns at driving the boat. Miss 4 was stated as the best female driver all day.
