It's raining again - lots! We are staying with Jimmy again tonight, so we spent most of the day sitting and chatting and catching up. Later in the afternoon we headed down to the Gold Coast, near Mt Tambourine to see Laurie and David (Nicks uncles) and Jay and Morgan (Nicks cousins). Cal enjoyed playing the guitar with Morgan and learning a few new songs. It was great to see all the guys after not seeing them for around 2 years or so.

When she saw the crab she flipped out! By Kade

We tasted all 16 types of Bundberg brewed drinks! Yum, Yum. It made Kade crazy and he burped. At Hervey Bay we went out for tea for Dad's birthday. We are staying at ...
Great Barrier Reef - here we come. Our day started out nice and early, we needed to be at the Marina by 7:00 to board the "Main Event" for our tour to Lady Musgrave Island. The weather was thankfully beautiful with clear sunny skies. Unfortunately we hadn't gone very far into the 2 1/2 hour cruise to the island before Kade gave us back his breakfast. This was followed by Cal doing the same all over the side of the boat not long after! We managed to make it t...
