Harlow’s Australian Vacation video


I have been home from Australia for a while now. It sounds like we had a lucky escape because the weather here in London whilst we were away was extreme! Floods and hurricane winds, meanwhile back in Australia we were relaxing by the pool or beach in the beautiful sunshine.

We had such an amazing time. It was literally jam packed full of fun! We did so many different things and caught up with so many friends and family. Mummy had a chance to see her friends and relax most days whilst Omi and Poppy entertained Ophelia and I. The last week we were on the Gold coast visiting all of daddy’s family, we stayed in a huge house with a pool. I went swimming 2-3 times a day! Australia is so warm, I think I would love to live there one day, but for now its great to have a big holiday there.

I was also lucky enough to celebrate my 3rd birthday. The day of my birthday I woke up early and the lounge room was filled with decorations, balloons and lots of presents from my Omi and Poppy, Oma, Nanny Mindy, Mama and my Aunty Jen. After I opened all my presents, Omi made some delicious pancakes for breakfast. Mama made a smiley face out of cream and strawberries, it was delish!

In the afternoon I had a mermaid party at the Pirate park in Currumbin. This place was the coolest park I had ever been to. It had a huge playground which included a Pirate ship and a beach just behind the park. Poppy got straight on Barbie to cook the snags whilst I played with all my friends and family. Mama had a few games planned which got everyone involved and provided a lot of entertainment. I got lots of mermaid presents and we played some really cool games. At the end of the day I had a huge rainbow birthday cake!! The whole day was a massive success, I think everyone had fun, especially me!

Mama and I would like to thank everyone who made our holiday special. Omi and Poppy get the biggest thank you as they flew over there and really spoilt us the whole time. Everyone made such a huge effort to come and see us where ever we were. I loved seeing all my family – I never realised how big my family is. My birthday was probably the coolest day ever, I can’t thank you all enough for coming out to celebrate with me and especially for all the pressies. In fact I got so spoilt we struggled to fit everything in our suitcases.

We took so many photo’s and videos that if we were to post them all you would be here all weekend. So Mama has kindly put together a video of our 3 week holiday in our home country. I hope you have as much fun watching it as we had fun on our trip.

What a funny name for a Town! There really are some funny names for towns in Australia.

We have moved on from Nelson Bay and ventured north. We are now residing in Urunga, a small beachy town south of Coffs Harbour.  Why are we here?? My Oma and Aunty Carol live nearby.

We had so much fun in Nelson Bay, I’m the last few days we did some more fishing, we sailed, we swam, we fed some Kangaroo’s and we went yabbying.  
I have so many pictures to show from the animal farm but my Aunty Mel took those ones on her camera so you’ll have to wait a little bit till mummy can get them.

At first I was a little unsure of these hoppy Kangaroo’s. Most of them were bigger than me and they had no awareness of personal space but after a while i warmed to them. Mummy and Ophelia loved them. My favourite animal were the Koala’s. They just chilled in a tree and let us pat them. They are so furry and cute.

On Saturday Heike and David came to visit us. It was a really nice day on the boat and Poppy got the bbq going and Heike and David were not the only visitors we had on Saturday, we had some dolphins stop by and say hello on our way back to the Marina. 

Australia day was lots of fun. It was a beautiful sunny day and the water was calling us so we sailed over to a little beach and moared.  My Omi took Ava and I in the Kayak, she did all the hard work to get us to shore and she did a good job, it didn’t take long and we didn’t fall in.

Once we were on shore, we all had a paddle and splash then Poppy whipped out this interesting contraption.  It sucked up the sand then he would push it out again and in the sand he sucked up we had to sift through and look out for Yabbies.  Yabbies are great fish bait so we collected a whole bucket full so we could do lots of fishing in the afternoon.  Mummy took a video of us doing it becuase she was very proud of me holding these little critters. They were funny, they had one big claw and they didn’t stop wriggling!

It was sad to say goodbye to my Aunty Melissa and my cousins but I had so much fun with them all week. They are all so much fun and I really love Omi and Poppy’s boat.

So now we are in Urunga and the fun has definitely not stopped….. but I will keep you in suspense because I heard we are doing something really fun tomorrow. So I will tell you all about the next part of my trip then.
