I just read my last post to see what I had been talking about. Well, duh, of course our mini holiday was great! Why would I think it would be anything but?
In saying that, I think we could have taken Nick to ANY zoo and he would have been happy. We probably didn’t have to take him to the most expensive one around! $55 per person!? We had discounts (student and RACQ) that brought it down to $45 per person, and we took our own food, so that wasn’t too bad I guess. But if you want to have your photo taken with a tiger, you better take that extra $500 you were keeping for a rainy day!
The hotel we stayed at was lovely, as was their pool. Nicklas had a fantastic time swimming and running all over the huge ledge they had it in. What a great idea for a pool! Of course, mummy had a heart attack every time he ran right off the edge! But he didn’t care, under he went until daddy scooped him up!
I think 1 more, possibly 2 more nights would have been nice. We were gone 2 nights/3 days and it was nice, but a tad short (I know, when is holiday ever NOT short?!). But an extra day or two to relax would have been nice.
I can’t believe it is already time for Mike to start his new job tomorrow! His week off went by so quickly, as is to be expected. It will be a while before he gets another holiday now, as his new place of employment shuts down for 3 weeks over Christmas/New Year. Which will be GREAT when the time comes, but it will be a long 11 months until that happens!
I better go get some sleep. We have to drive Mike to work in the morning as the truck he’s buying failed the road worthy test Saturday and they weren’t able to get parts until tomorrow. Nothing like leaving things until the very last minute!
