Day 5: Sydney

This was certainly an interesting day….Jonas went to bed super early last night and ended up waking at 1 AM.  Rachel woke at 4 AM.  I woke at 6:30 AM.  Due to the time the kids woke I was worried how our day would go. The kids were real troopers.  They made it to after dinner before going to bed tonight.  Hopefully jet lag will not be as bad for them today as it was yesterday.

Today we ended up walking to the Sydney Sea Life Aquarium.  It was pretty cool.  The major exhibits involved walking through large tunnels to see sharks and other types of fish.  They also had a tiny penguin boat ride.

Following the Aquarium wondered around Darling Harbour. The kids ended up getting frozen cokes and sprites. They charge a whole lot more for those here then they do in the US. We walked on some walkways and enjoyed the beautiful weather.

Next we headed back to the townhouse for lunch.  Then after lunch we headed to the Sydney bridge walk.  We walked to the top of the Sydney harbor bridge, it was pretty cool. They only take 14 people up in a group. Each person has to wear a bridge suit and everything that you take up there is attached to the suit. No cameras are allowed.

We stopped for ice cream on the way back to our rental. Then once we got back I started making dinner and asked my husband to do his best to keep the kids awake while I did that. Rachel fell asleep but she woke for dinner. We finally had the dinner I was going to make Monday night. Following dinner the kids immediately went to bed.

I am hoping the kids and I wake up pretty early tomorrow as if we do we are going to take a ferry to one of the beaches.  If not, we'll come up with something else to do.

Australian jerky anyone?
