Home to the States

Our morning started with a 3am shuttle ride from Port Douglas to Cairns.
I had to document this as it's what made me carsick on the ride in.  I can't decide if it's better or worse in the dark ..... hope you feel my pain watching it as I feel sick remembering it.  LOL

The Seattle Smith's were veryyyy sleepy and excited to get home!

We had about 10 minutes before boarding, so I walked into the shops and decided on the spot that I needed a pair of UGGS as my Australian souvenir.  These have been on my wish list for Santa since last year, so I did it!!  It was the most spur of the moment purchase I have made in a long time since it didn't cross my mind once the prior 12 days!

I'm lea-vin' ... on a jet plane ....



I feel so full from the experiences created on this trip, and a verse that has been weighing on my heart is ...


Heb 12:1: Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.

So were the uggs REALLY made in Aussie??? haha. A lot of them are made in China! :)
They make a lot of Uggs in NZ as well, but they still bring in and sell uggs made in China, so I always check the labels to see where they were made! :)
I am going to catch up on the rest of your trip now

Hi Kelsey, just started blogging and following and came across yours. Ya'll are tooo cute!!! Adore your blog and totally relate to driving in snow, I'm from NE texas (longview area) but my job took me all the way to Ann Arbor, MI. We're even test drivin a subie tonight. So refreshing to read @ your life--a christian who is active and northern transplant. Now I'm interested in crossfit. Rock on Kelsey and Gabe!!!

Love your Uggs! Cute style and color!

Warning: the Uggs are addictive. I got the black Cardis last year and then bought another exact same but taller pair and now I want Gray. The only downside is how much rain we get all the time because my feet would get wet if I wore them everywhere like I want to! Your trip looked like a blast, can't wait to read about the rest.

Jessica said...

Those are the EXACT Uggs that I want! That shuttle looks frightening - to say the least!

Shannon said...

What a beautiful verse to go with such a once in a lifetime experience! Love your Aussie souvenir! UGGs are so super comfy!

Jen said...

Wow, wow, wow! I've loved catching up on your Australian adventure, and now I really want to go! I just had an experience filled vacation, and yours was even bigger and better. Those are the best kinds of vacations, the kinds we should strive for.

I have to ask... how much were your Uggs? Were they cheaper than they are in the US? I've heard they are cheaper in Australia. Yours are super cute, and I know you're gonna love them and get so much wear out of them.

SEW said...

I've loved reading about your trip!! Especially the post about the toilet....too funny! I would have been so confused at first!

Jenni said...

WOW!!!! What an amazing experience that must have been!! I'm so happy you got to do that! :)

Ali said...

Okay...

a) That video made me a bit queasy.
b) I think it is SO special that you and Gabe had this experience together.
c) I loved these posts!!!

Candice said...
