Sea World!

As I mentioned last week, my little family and I went on a summer holiday to the Gold Coast, QLD for some theme park fun!

Our first stop was Sea World....

*Any photo I'm in was either taken by my husband, brother or Mum. On auto, because they're scared of my camera LOL*
You can't go to Sea World without getting a photo with this guy, it's like the rules ;) William wasn't too sure so hubby snuck him round the back!

Tried for a family photo...got a little attitude from Miss Cheeky Bum in the front ;)
Don't you love it when you have to cram yourself in the kiddie rides? William wasn't tall enough to ride this one without a parent so we had to go for a spin ;)
You had to pull yourself to the top on this one and I think I'm a bit of a weakling so hubby got to ride this one too ;)

They're in the middle of rebranding the kids area from Sesame Street Beach to Nickelodeon Beach, so nearly all the Sesame Street character signage was down, making the rides look a little boring..
But we still got to meet Elmo! William spotted him and squealed "MOMO!!" and slammed him in a big bear hug hehe. Hubby had to peel him off so the other kids could get a photo!






This was the only ride William could go on by himself and he LOVED it. He literally made the height requirement by a hair! It goes up and down up and down and he giggled and waved the whole time! It goes pretty high for a little two year old, what a daredevil =D 

Mama and Willy on the carousel :)

This was a pretty big moment, Charlotte's first 'big girl' ride! The drop is pretty steep and she handled it like a trooper, wanted to ride again and again!
She went straight back on, this time with Grandma, Grandpa and Uncle Dewie :)

They'll hate me for sharing this one!

 
William and my brother watching the fishies in Shark Bay :)

William loved the "Pengkins" hehe. They had a 3D short of 'Happy Feet' in the theatre there and he really enjoyed it. When we visited Sea World a second time he kept asking to go to the "Pengkin watch?" so cute :) 
I tried to be a good Mummy and buy him a Penguin soft toy in the gift shop on the way out but he said "No. No Pengkin." Hubby took him out to the car while Charlotte and I payed for our souvenirs and he kept looking over hubby's shoulder, shaking his chubby fist at me saying "No pengkin" Fine then. So I bought him a singlet and a sippy cup, lol.

Just chillin at lunch.

I have no idea.


I did pack her swimmers for this, but there's no time to get changed properly when there's a Sesame Street fountain calling your name ;)



and then, she {snapped}

A theme park full of rides and they STILL bugged me for $2 to put in this one!!

He was asleep before we left the car park! For someone who usually has a 3 hour nap, it was a loooong day :)

 

You can see my first lot of holiday photos on the beach HERE

Oh my, looks like so much fun!! We have similar rides here and Charlotte's big-girl ride was my favorite ride back before I was a mom... I used to go on it over and over again with my cousins, then the first time I took my kids on it, I freaked out. I'm such a fraidy cat now, but Z LOVES it. J, not so much. :)

It's hard to get good photos at an amusement park, but these are all fabulous! Looks like a great time!
