Ups and Downs...mainly a blur

These past few days have been crazy. This is just a sneak peak of the crazy amount of blogging I will have to catch up on. After our 15 hour flight to Hong Kong we enjoyed a few days at Disneyland Hong Kong and stayed HERE. We had so much fun... and were soooo tired. (MUCh more on that later)
The boys loved disneyland and I swear they got their pictures taken as much as any Disney Character! I was inspired by how great the locals were about posing for pictures. No one just stands there and gets their picture taken they always have a cool pose. I loved it. Liam and Sam thought it was so funny they joined right in.
The second morning we had breakfast with characters. Then headed to the HUGE Buddha at Ngon Ping.
We took a long cable car ride up and then hiked up the huge amount of stairs.
As we fought through the throngs of people taking pictures of the Buddha... oh and of course us.
There is MUCH more to come. We are now hanging out in THE nicest hotel I have ever stayed in. Thank you Singapore embassy for the ambassador hook up HERE. The boys love the butler and mom loves the TV in the bath tub!! (especially after being thrown up on twice.... like I said more later) It was such an amazing blessing after such a long hard day.
These few days have felt like this;
a complete blur

So fun to see AND talk (on the computer) with you today. I love Liam's shoes and Sam's sunglasses and Abby's ever ready smile. What an amazing journey. I can see everyone taking pictures of your family. A manly man with his baby girl in a frontpack and a diaper bag AND two other kids is surely a rarity there.

Robyn Reynolds said...

Miss you guys! Who's going to appreciate my old tricycle? You're going to have such an adventure. Can't wait to hear all about it!

The Grady's said...

Sounds like fun! So glad to hear you guys are doing well!

Patty Girl said...

Like everyone else said....What a cool adventure you guys are having! I just can't believe you are on the other side of the world. Isn't it funny how blondes are such a show stopper in Asia. I can't wait to see more of your super exciting life!

did nate make pizza for chris on his mission? or did we have pizza when you visited. people ask for my pizza dough, but I don't think it is anything special. it is just from the betty crocker cook book and we do 2 think crusts. We bake it first with olive oil all over it lately, it tastes so rich. Our current fav is fetta cheese, capers, red onion, sun dried tomatoes and kalamate olives. yum. even nate likes it an there is NO meat! wow.
