Just a quick addition

Wow - so much has happened since our last post! I will make this one brief as well unfortunately as internet access is neither easy or cheap when you are on the road! We spent 8 days down on the Gold Coast after we left Brisbane. We went to a theme park Dreamworld, for 2 days and Eddie took his first surfing lesson - and LOVED it! He seemed to do well and was able to get up on the board - I don't know - maybe 10-15 times - he had a total ball! Now he's Mr. Sufer Dude - every time he sees the shore it's all "Oh man, did you see that - I should be riding those waves!" Anyway - now down on the "Sunshine Coast" - I only put in quotation marks because we haven't seen any actual sun - it has been very cool to cold - temps in the low 60's and rain Rain RAIN! We've managed to salvage a bit of the early part of the week by sneaking out when it's not raining and sometimes just tolerating it and going to the beach in the middle of a rainstorm - wet anyways I guess!
We went to Underwater World today and spent the last few days in Mooloolaba trying to stay dry and exploring the shops there. Will head up to Noosa Heads tomorrow and then off to the Australia Zoo on Friday - the kids will love that based on their response to Underwater world today. All in all we are having a good time and just happy to be together. I will fill in all the blanks later. Have a great 4th of July weekend for all of you back in the U.S. - for those of you down under - pray for the end of rain (I know, I know, there's been a 55 year drought ... but does it really have to end this week?) :)

Sounds like crazy fun down there, even with the low temps and rain. We could definately use the low temps up here. its been in the 90's forever. The sidewalks are melting.
