I think I have told you about the Wicked rental vans that are everywhere—this is one that we saw when we were hiking someplace. some of them are just plain funny and some border on raunchy—this one kind of is borderline. I saw one on the ferry on Magnetic island that is my favorite one so far—-had a huge picture of Darth Vader on the side and on the back it said “Come to the Dark Side—–we have cookies!” They have some pretty funny ones that is for sure and it is a cheap way to get around Australia I guess.
Chris and i are sitting on the veranda with our laptops and coffee this morning trying to be quiet. I picked the boys up yesterday at the airport and we stopped on the way home to get some toiletries for Aaron since he left everything behind in order to keep his luggage weight down. I have spent more than I can reveal on groceries in the past 2 days in preparation for 2 growing boys though they both said they have been eating like one meal a day. I need to get them back to eating right!!! There are roadworks everywhere and the grocery store we stopped at on the way home had the exit shut since they are working on the Bruce highway there so of course it was not clearly marked where to go. Now if I KNEW what the streets were it would have been a piece of cake but I finally figured it out after a couple of dead ends and we made it home to find Chris had beaten us home. They scarfed down some sloppy joes i had made and it was 3:30 by then so of course they did not feel like eating dinner at 6:30 but Aaron did eat some later.
It is so nice to have them here. Aaron has really long hair and new dark glasses and he just does not look like himself!!! Today we are going to go into Townsville and go to Castle Hill and then another park or something to hike around a bit. The air is just dead still right now so I think it is going to be hot hot hot today. We usually have a breeze out here and at 8:30 am it is pretty darn steamy already.
So the adventures have begun and I will let you know how our visit goes!!! 30 days till our trip back to the US—am i excited??? YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
