We have arrived

We have arrived safely Downunder.
It was a very very long journey, not looking forward to the trip back.
All went well except that Alexandra would get sick everytime she was brought a meal. She is not so experienced at being sick into a little bag so we used up all our spare clothes. Poor girl. She is ok now, well except for a cough.

We were met by Mum, Mel, Jon, Beck, Andy and baby Jaxon at the airport. So great to see everyone. After a quick catch up it was time to head back to Beck and Andy's place. Alexandra got to sit in her new car seat and was impressed - she kept saying its just like Harrison's. We didnt have a great first night. Alexandra was up at 2am. I looked at my phone and i saw 5.15 - didnt look at it properly, cause it was actually 5,15pm in Switzerland not Australia. So we watched a little tv on the iPods and tried to get some more sleep. We finally got up round 6am and I went back for a little nap here and there. We then all headed out to visit Nan and Pa and also Nono in the morning. On the way home we got some hot chips from Aussie Rooster and came back and had long naps in the afternoon.

Today will be a fun day. About to head out shopping. We had a much better night. Alexandra slept all the way tilll 7am and me till almost 6am.
