On the weekend Liahona and I took off to Adelaide for a whirlwind visit!
We did not start off very well as we missed our flight on the Friday night (don't ask!), but we managed to get a flight the next morning and to make it to the event we were scheduled to attend.
It was Liahona's first time on a plane (that she can remember) and she was a little scared during the take off and landing but otherwise very excited to be on a plane and to have a window seat.
On the Friday Liahona was given the class pet for the weekend, so guess who ended up having an adventure with us - Floyd the dancing zebra. Man, was the pressure on to make sure we knew where Floyd was the whole time - nothing like leaving the class pet behind! Happy to report Floyd made it safely back to class but I doubt he will ever be the same after spending a weekend with the Ellis family!
Liahona loved being able to hang out with some of her cousins without any brothers and sisters around to steal her limelight!
Whilst I was in Adelaide I wanted to try a 'Frog Cake'. I remember eating them during my Uni days and loved them. First of all I was shocked at how much this little baby cost - $4.30...boy have they gone up in price! Now I know they are only made in South Australia but for such a small thing they sure cost a lot. So after consuming this sugar packed delight, I happened to glance at the packaging and discover that it contained 1300 calories!!! No way! there is totally no food in this cake, all sugar and fat..so that was my last frog cake ever..so long little buddy...our friendship was great while it lasted but I am moving on!
We stopped off at the beach down south and I was reminded of just how beautiful Australian beaches are...totally gorgeous day!
Liahona working it at the beach!
Me, well I am doing something at the beach!
To finish off our Adelaide trip, we had to stop at the Chocolat shop and get ourselves a iced chocolate because, well, we worked hard catching up with family, chocolate was the theme of our whole visit, (thanks for spoiling us family) we made it to everything we wanted to and we had such a long flight ahead of us..we needed something to keep us awake!
That's my reasons and I am sticking to it!
