Before I go on, I have to warn that this post is picture intensive, so proceed only when you have time to read. 🙂
The morning air was crisp and cold, but there was a hint of an overcast possibility and rain. But anyway, we had to bring Ariel to the doctor as the mucus from her nose had turned greenish yellow, and this was a sure sign that infection is setting in.
We found a small clinic, or what they call a medical centre near our apartment. To cut to the chase, the consultation fees came up to A$68 (and really not worth it, cos we knew what medicine we wanted). The medicine, an anti-histomine caused us another A$28. Total rip-off.
Surprisingly, Ariel was still feeling quite energetic, and didn’t seem to be sick at all. Maybe we were too over anxious. So, after the doctors and pharmacy, we headed to Dreamworld!!!!!
And… who was there to greet us? It had to be DORA THE EXPLORER!!! I tell ya… the kids went crazy!
After the inital excitement died down, we went on to the Nikolodean park, where there were lots of kiddy rides. Too many till it made me giddy. 🙂 Of course, we had to get on Blue’s Skidoo, which was a ride with Blue or Magenta.
Then of course there was Scooby Doo’s beach train ride.
And…. the usual merry go round….
But…what was the highlight of the day, was the Sponge Bob Square Pants show, which had the kids totally entralled. They sat still for close to 30 minutes!!!!!!!!!! Thats a real miracle!!!
I even have the video!!!
Australia Zoo was also originally in our plans, until we found out how far it was from our location (damn it….. should have gone and met the Crocodile Hunter the last time) so, when we chanced on this croc, the kids just gave it all they had.
Of course, one of the main attractions at Dreamworld was the Wiggles World, and the kids made a beeline for that.
This picture of Ariel shows her walking towards Dorothy the Dinosaur, but in reality, she chickened out! Scurried quickly back to me once Dorothy started talking to her. 🙂 ha ha…
We went on a ride on the Big Red Car.
My goodness!!! I have never seen so many things Wiggles in my life! Crikey!
Then there was the candy store. MAN!!! you have to see this to believe it. Shop stacked full of artery busting sugar!!!!
Of course, there are the stupid touristy poses we had to go through…. Unfortunately, Chris was not gamed enough….. 😦 and YES, that is a GENUINE limited edition U21 Polo-T that I was wearing.
Finally, the once single picture that tells the whole story… It was such an excellent day, and we were completely tired out!
