IAH > LAX > SYD

April 15, 2014

Our trip got off to a bad start with me vomiting, Papi feeling sick and a momentary hiccup with Rafa’s Australian visa.

We had everything back on track by the time we had departed Houston and had dug out things to do from our activity pack.

Flight one down, followed by 5 hours to hang at LAX.  We thought the new terminal was gorgeous with its new shops and restaurants and giant digital art screens.

The kids area was super cool too.  We surfed a little then played tag with some bigger kids on our flight (who Rafa had no problems tackling to the ground).  We ran until our cheeks were red.

We slept for about 3/4 the 14 and a half hour flight with our new travelling blankets and pillows (Dusty and Sofia the First themed).

And for the first time I signed my own Incoming Passenger Card.  A-N-A.

About 30 hours after we left home in Houston we were getting off the train in the Sydney CBD.

When I got home I wasted no time checking out my loot.

The story of the three pigs

Whilst Rafa was doing what he loves best (playing ball), I was doing what I love best (telling stories).

Playing catch

The Texas urologist

I met my new urologist today at Texas Children's Hospital.

There are coloured balls everywhere, which I thought was super cool.

AND I got to press the elevator button.  I even told the doctor inside the elevator all about that.

Mum thought the highlight of the visit was we don't have to do anything until an ultrasound in the fall.

Mum thought the highlight of the visit was that we don’t have to do anything for the moment and we’ll wait until October to do another ultrasound to look at my kidneys again.

But she must have forgotten about the ride we got back to our car.  That was definitely the best bit of the day.

Told you so!  Let's go again.
