I'm flying out there
Seriously, I'm going to fly out there to Turkey to travel with you if you would have me. Only question is if I can sync up on your trip. Check you emails (both gmail and yahoo) or Skype and get in touch with me. I wish I came to this decision earlier but bascially i'm canceling my California trip to fly out to Turkey.

Lessons learned Mailing to Australia
First I'm glad that there are other people thinking of you and sending you stuff. 2nd, it crazy the ammount of rules there are for shiping stuff. There are even different forms if you are over 4lbs vs under. Hint: you want to be under, its easier and cheaper :) Fact: my box was 3lbs 14oz. 10 York Pepermint Patties of the origninal 42 weren't allowed to head down under and got eaten in Pittsburgh.

Hearing from you Saturday evening (our time) was such a treat. Keep the blogs coming and tell Emily that is my favorite picture of her so far - all ready to go.

Overall it sounds like you had fun last weekend. Wish me luck in having fun this weekend with the Pittsburgh Half Marthon coming up. I just hope I don't collapse.

Tubing
Once again - a great story! In my defense, I never chased my children with power tools. Sounds like you had a very interesting time. The mozzies make you leg look like you have a case of measels.

Guar Gum Gak
I am really glad you posted the info of how to make this Gak stuff. This sounds like a really fun kids party. My inner nerd squealed with delight when I heard it was a science theme :)

OMG, the Birthday Party looks Awsome
First off, thank you Barrett for calling me to wish me happy birthday. Besides thanking you, I have to log into facebook (which I never do) today to thank everyone else too since I got like 50 wishes online. But man, a science experiment birthday party??!!?!?! So cool. Very awesome Heather. Talk about being jealous of someone else's childhood. It is just so cool.

A trip of a life time
See!!! Never would I have thought you would be able to accomplish so much while visiting Heather/Simon. A big thank you should be given to them for showing you a great time. Though who knows if what they are doing is just a normal Aussie weekend (which makes mine seem boring). Also, glad to see you are still alive after falling 20 feet onto the rocks. Plus, it looks like you learned about another rule in regards to applying sunscreen. Keep up the great work on updating the blog with photos. It helps in keeping my jealously at all time high.

Great blog
You seem to be getting the most out of your trip. My 2 cents - you can keep that Huntsman spider in Australia! Also, it looks like you are in the market for new shorts! :-) I'm glad that you weren't seriously hurt.

Loved the story...
particularly of blowing out the eggs. Am anxious to hear about the cave trip. We miss you in spinning! Nina

Blown eggs
I am impressed. I never was successful at blowing eggs which is probably why you knew nothing about the process. Of course I didn't a pro, like Heather and her friends to show me how it was done. Have fun and stay away from the stinging tree.

Exciting!
That sounds exciting! When you get back we will have to go spelunking in Blacksburg, that is to say, "if" you come back...

Gifts
Life with out airconditioning makes me feel somewhat spoiled with having it. I know when living on Chincoteague I didn't really have it but still had a great time during the summers (went to bed many of nights with my head wet to help cool off). But talk about geting some fresh air. Always had the windows opening hoping to catch a cool breeze but would come home to a wet floor b/c some flash rainstorm would roll through while I was at work. But back to the title, gifts. I was about to mail off your travel gift I had gotten you when I realized that I could get something for Heather/Simon and faimly. It wouldn't be right for you to get a package that doesn't include somethign that could be shared by everyone. So I need a little help/suggestions. I have some thoughts/ideas which I've gotten by reading your blog. Like Space Icecream (it doesn't melt). Would be curious to know if Emily or Max have ever had it :) Also, when is the best time to talk to you via Skype? your nights or your mornings?

Egg Hunting Traditions
In my own defense, I enjoyed hiding the real and fake eggs for Marcus and Barrett to find on Easter morning. I took the time to evenly divide the prizes to all four corners of our property. The more valuable the contents, the more difficult I hid the egg. Up in trees, on the ground - but always in sight and not under or in something. The first time I did this I believe Marcus was 16 and Barrett was 9. As I recall I explained that the eggs were equally distributed in all four corners of the property and the more difficult the hiding place, then the greater the gain. Clear enough to me. In any case, we started the egg hunt and Marcus took off with Barrett in close pursuit. Marcus scooped up the eggs in front of Barrett, leaving the lesser prizes for his sister. This was not going as I had planned it! The straw that broke the camel's back was after Barrett complained about the lack of prizes, Marcus said something along the lines of "Nah, nah, - na, nah nah". "Whap!" went Barrett's Easster basket on the ground! Easter was now officially ruined. Anyway, that's the way I remember it. The following year it went better and no, I never bit the face off my kids' chocolate Easter bunnies. That's my story and I'm sticking with it!

Pictures
I love the pictures. You all look like you are having such a fun time with the koalas. I am so jealous!! Getting to hold a koala goes right up there with feeding the giraffes. Even better I think.

Possums as pets
The kids say that it depends, some people do, but they think its cruel and weird. Some of the people that get them in their house will name them if the same one keeps coming around. But for the most part people consider them a pest. Simon says that people keep possums as pets would be like Americans keeping Raccoons as pets. So far it has been a great time, the Robson's are a wonderful family and I wouldn't be having near as many wonderful exeriences if it wasn't for them!
