Happy Birthday JoJo...we're off to Wiggle World!!!

If JoJo could say it all I'm sure she would say something like this!!!

I have just recently celebrated a very special birthday in Wiggle World at the Gold Coast in Queensland!!!


All a last minute job...when Dad went to buy a cake for me he found that the ovens weren't working at the place he went to...of all the luck, it had to be on my birthday didn't it!!!
There was no other shop there...then Danelle had the bright idea to make a packet one...
she was lucky to be able to find a gluten free packet chocolate cake...
I had already bought the candle and Wiggles sticker for the cake...

then when she went to cook it in the oven at her apartment room it didn't work...grrrr!!!
James then bought it down to our one and luckily it was a goer!!!
Well done Danelle and thank you so much!!!


Here I am with Mum at the airport...


Here is a pic of our plane...I'm very excited by now!!!


The view from our balcony...isn't it wonderful!!!


I'd never seen a Hard Rock Cafe before but we had one just near us...here I am standing amongst Beatles memorabilia...


with Ringo...


Check out the watch from Mum and Dad...


The entrance to Dreamworld...Wiggles World is inside this theme park...


I'm so happy to be here...



We all had a ride inside the Big Red Car...


With the famous Wiggles skivvies...


Inside a tea cup with my brother James...I bet he never thought he would ride inside a purple tea cup ha ha!!!


Claire Fairy...Dorothy the Dinosaur...Wags the Dog...Me and Captain Feathersword...
and to think I actually got to meet these people...and dinosaur and dog...wow!!!


Having a ride with Danelle and James inside a log...down stream...through tunnels...up...and speeding down and getting splashed...WHAT FUN we had!!!


Mum really liked this sign inside an olden day gold themed park...
Dressmaking and Tailor...repairing neatly done...


and these old time buildings...


At my birthday dinner at The Grand Chancellor they decorated the table for me with GOLD stars...
drew on the balloons...they were just so nice to me and fussed over me...


Mum and I went shopping for a birthday dress...
I also found a headband with a feather on it to wear...
I normally just wear a t shirt with a favourite music band on it and some pants so this was really something!!!


And here I am with Dad, Mum, James and Danelle...
I had a fabulous time...thank you so very much everybody...
I love you all to bits...JoJo xoxo
