Just the two of us.......or should I say four of us?

May 19, 2010

Ryan and I spent the day together at Surfers Paradise. It was wonderful to have some alone time, as we soon will have NONE!

We had a great time at the beach playing in the waves. I was laughing SO hard the whole time! The waves kept knocking me down and I was just cracking up, which got Ryan laughing too. It felt so good to just let go of everything and laugh!!! It was so nice to reconnect with my amazing husband!
So now a little story about......ME.....and the lady who made my day!

Ryan and I were packing up and heading for some lunch when this lady came up to me and asked if she could talk to me. I said "Yes." She then said, "I am old enough to be your mother. I have got to tell you, you are the most beautiful pregnant women I have ever seen! I am very close to God and you are special." She said a few other really nice things as well. She told me all of this while in a half hug. When I told her I was having twins she was almost beside herself with joy. After we said our goodbye I told Ryan what she had said. He said, "Did you tell her you love her?" It's a joke that whenever I get a complement I tell the person I love them. Well I didn't tell her then but I will tell her now......Dear random lady at the beach, I love you!

So after falling in love with my husband again......and unexpectedly with a random lady at the beach it was time for lunch. We headed down to the mall, only a short walk/ride.

Top left picture is Ryan looking very regal while sitting on a wooden crocodile at a gift shop. Bottom left The AuqaDuck, a tour bus in shape of a duck. Bottom right me trying chips and gravy. Chips, fries to us Americans, and gravy is very big in Australia! We had to try it before we leaving. It was yummy! We eat mashed potatoes and gravy so I guess it's really not that strange, it's all apart of the potato family, right? The top right picture is in front of the Ripley's Believe it or not museum. The figures danced and "sang" along to the music playing. Well I guess they didn't want to spend too much time programing them so they only sang three songs.....over.....and.....over. This was right across from the cafe we had lunch at,which had outdoor seating, so we heard a lifetimes worth of "Poker face", "Numa Numa" and "Boom Boom Pow".

As we were leaving the mall we saw the coolest thing (which would not show up in picture, so it's not posted). The mall walk way leads straight to the beach and the Surfers Paradise sign. As we headed toward the sign a rainbow appeared in the sky ending at the Surfers Paradise sign! Awesome!!!
