Sorry We've Been Gone!

We have had very busy last few weeks so sorry for the lack of posts! We have been dealing with the stress of finding somewhere to live in the very competitive real estate market here in Melbourne but we are proud to say that we finally have a home! We move in on Friday and are very happy to have this whole process over with and get the rest of our stuff back!

I feel like looking for a house is all we have been doing but we did find time to do some other things too!

We went to our very first Footy match. (Australian Rules Football) It is kind of like soccer meets American football meets rugby. There is a lot going on but it is very exciting and fun to watch. The match we saw was Collingwood v. Geelong who are the top teams in the league so the game was very intense and was close until the final seconds. Geelong came out on top. The stadium holds almost 100,000 people and this game had about 85,000 fans in attendance. Crazy! Click here to read more about it.

We also went to the Melbourne Aquarium which was pretty cool but probably not worth going to again.

The coolest thing there was this giant frozen shark but it's not frozen in ice it's just in a really cold box that somehow keeps ice from forming on the shark. It's a REAL shark! I stupidly forgot to take a picture of it though. UGH! 

Sorry we don't have more to post, things have been so stressful around here. I can't wait until we are unpacked and settled in our new house. 

Talk to you guys soon!!
