Thankful Thursday...Australia Part 2
You can read part one here!
Ok, so after we surprised Jael, (1)which was absolutely worth every penny and hour spent getting to Australia, we ate lunch at the cafe.
The next week passed in a blur. Jael has a tiny house, but a (2) huge yard for the kids to play in! She has a very small car, so we could almost never go somewhere all at once. Because of that we ended up staying at her house or walking most places. Our favourites quickly became (3)drinking loads of tea, (4)waking up at 6am with Danica and Ryker and enjoying the quiet mornings, (5)sitting in the backyard watching the cockatoos fly overhead, (6)eating avocado and tomato sandwiches, and (7) hanging the laundry to dry in the sunny yard....there was MUCH laundry to do while we were there!
I started a week long tradition of (8)walking Alexa to school in the mornings....my favourite was the morning that we were walking, and we saw a "40" on the road to signify the school zone. Alexa saw it and informed me, "ok, we need to start walking a little faster here now because there is a 40 on the road" LOL.
Jael and I also loved (9) taking the babies for a walk. Thankfully, (10) Jael had an extra stroller, and Danica happened to love it, so we would strap them in and walk a couple Kms downhill. The best part was walking back UP. Haha. Actually, the BEST part is that there was a takeout place at the end of Jael's street, and they (11) served amazing fries with chicken salt. I had never heard of chicken salt before, and I'm still not sure what it is exactly, but YUM!
One night, we were invited to a party in a penthouse suite of a reaaaally tall hotel. (12)The view was absolutely incredible.
