Surf's Up

We went to see the movie Surf's Up. Don't bother if you have young children...actually even if you have older children. We weren't that impressed especially when a children's movie uses the word "sucks" and "peckerface". Not something that we want our kids repeating. It's sad that movies nowadays have to have adult humor in them. I don't remember my mom being concerned about me watching Lady and the Tramp although that kissing scene was a little steamy! ;-P
This coming week is 4th of July. I was a little disappointed to hear that there isn't much going on but then I remembered that I'm in a foreign country...duh. There is a big celebration at this place called Polaris Point which has one way in and one way out....sounds like a big ol' traffic jam to me. Chris and I aren't one for crowds so not sure if we are going to venture out or have a nice quiet cookout by ourselves. Logan also starts swim lessons again on the same day at 4:30. Was a little disappointed about that but again...in a foreign country. Like they care about celebrating our independence. On the 21st is their celebration for liberation from Japanese occupation during WWII. I hear that the locals will camp out on the side of the road which is the parade route for up to TWO weeks to get a good spot. I suggested doing the same but Chris wasn't into it...haha!
Currently we are planning a big trip to Australia for next year. I would love to rent an RV and travel up and down the coast of Queensland but Chris isn't comfortable camping in a foreign country. So what if they drive on the opposite side of the road and we would have to fight off crocodiles, dingos and kangaroos...it would be an adventure!!
