While we were in Sydney Chrish had to work but was able to take a RDO while we were there. Before we went up he asked me what we had planned and what day we would like him to have the day off work.
Since our trip to Queensland we have become adrenalin junkies and wish we lived closer to the theme parks so we could go to them more often. When the boys knew we were going to Sydney they all said they wanted to go back to Luna Park. They loved it last time we were there with Aaron and kept talking about all the fun things they did. We thought it would be fun to go with Chrish, so that's what the boys were hanging out for all week.
Chrish drove us around the city for a bit before we went to Luna Park. It was so nice having him drive, after driving all week and feeling so stressed because of all the traffic.
There was an awesome sign there that made us laugh, so I made the boys get their photo taken in front of it. Harri saw the sign and said 'that's true Mum! You are a star!' and made me laugh as in his eyes, there is no one better than Mum at the moment. Jay did the whole teenage thing where he tried to pretend he was too cool to get his photo taken there, but obliged and stood there for me.
I really missed Aaron when we were at Luna Park as I had a lot of
memories from when we were on rides together last time. I think it was
a lot different in Queensland because when we were there together for Noah's Make a Wish Trip we didn't have anyone to help with the boys, so we didn't get to go on any rides together. It's always fun going on rides with Jay though.
We have a big joke with Chrish as a family about him being scared of 'pirate ship' type rides. When we were young we drove to Queensland as a family and at Sea World we went on the pirate ship. Chrish was so scared (he was probably 8 at the time) that he screamed so much that they had to stop the ride to let him off. He definitely isn't scared anymore! He was literally the only person on this ride, before Jay decided to be brave and joined him.
