Yes, that has officially become their names since we arrived at my parents house in Australia. I think mum thought I was joking when I told her just how active they are. Well after just a few hours at the house she's almost ready for a vacation ha ha.
Our flight over was really great. I don't know what I was scared about it because the kids did so well.
So I have a funny story to share. My friend Jane (who I would link to her blog right now if I could figure out how to use this computer ha ha) drove us to the airport. We pulled up to the terminal so we could offload everything. Me in all my glory (probably a little butt crack showing and some serious cleavage going on) was on hands and knees on the ground attaching the wheels to the carseats when I look up and notice photographers kind of aiming in our direction. I look around and we notice that there's a limo (to make most limo's hide in shame) parked alongside our car and out of it pops a high profile celebrity (do you think we can remember who he was NO, we seriously went through all the big names but both of us drew a blank … sad isn't it. I don't think I've read a People magazine in ……yep, I can't remember how long). Anywho, there I am surrounded in bags and kids and on my hands and knees and paparazzi are EVERYWHERE. Jane and I are there unpacking everything on our own and they've got PEOPLE to help them out. There's a couple of security guys there to escort the celeb and entourage into the airport and we are left there still pondering who this star was and I'm left on my hands and knees on the ground. Yep, that's my life. No limo's or security for my grand entrance to the airport. I think secretly they were waiting for me, but then this showboat stole my thunder. Seriously as if he's not photographed enough. Damn him!''
UPDATE: Jane remembered who it was … Dennis Quaid, his wife and their twins. No wonder the paparazzi were all over them. What about me and my twins, huh?!
So after 18.5 hours of flying plus a layover in New Zealand we arrived in the blistering cold weather down under. It's the middle of winter people and it was 9 degrees celcius when we touched down this morning. Brrrr, my poor frozen me. I don't do well in the cold. I'm a big sook.
Oh and the security staff at the airport in Australia loved us. Seriously, they really did. They even wanted to look for a video camera to tape us arriving to show other parents coming in how it should be done. Apparently I had a SYSTEM to beat all systems LOL. It was so funny. I won't be defeated by something as silly as 3 kids, 2 carseats, 2 strollers, 2 pillows, 5 suitcases and 4 carry-on bags ha ha. Seriously people were just staring at us and I wish so much I had've had someone take photos of us.
Anywho, here are a few photos so you can see just a little of the mayhem that took place today.
Marisol put on a little performance for us. Well actually she put it on for her Grandpa who she can't stop smiling at.
