It’s been a busy week! I’m so glad to have little helpers! These two worked on some dishes and made my life a little less stressful.We needed to make a trip to Hong Kong. We’ve been before, but this is the bluest I have ever seen the water there. Usually we say the photos we see are photo shopped, but I guess it can be blue on some days ☺
Riding the ferry to a different part of Hong Kong.
While there, we stopped at a park to let the kids play for a bit. I was sitting on a bench when I hear Hudson say, “Mom! Take my picture! I made it to the middle!” It was a maze, but it didn’t come up very high on Regan…I think Hudson had a little advantage being with his big sister.
Mamaw and Papaw came for a surprise visit. They decided to surprise Katherine for her birthday. I should have had my camera ready when they walked in the door. My house was so quiet when they walked in the door and every jaw was literally on the ground. Complete shock ☺ Charlie enjoyed the extra attention from Papaw ;)
We did a lot of walking…found some new streets and stores and crossed the bridge over one of the rivers going through our city.
There are many foot bridges, too. I really love them right now…they are so pretty with all the flowers. The kids were racing to the top.
Haha! I love the look I got from them when I said, “Wait! Let me take your picture.” They reluctantly stopped for a second for a picture.
A Sam’s Club opened in our city. We went to check it out. I was hoping to find some kind of treasure for Katherine’s birthday, but it’s NOT like America. It was expensive and didn't really have what I was hoping for. It was fun to go to though. Parts of it reminded us of the States.
Like the huge shopping carts and the free samples! Although many of the samples were to a more Asian taste, which my kiddos loved.
The decorating continues. Since we don’t really use the tv, we decided it was the perfect frame for Katherine’s happy birthday sign.
On one of our many walks, we say some boats bringing in their catch from the ocean. They just dumped all of their live shrimp on the sidewalk and the two ladies started scooping up which ones they wanted to take to the market to sell.
I love watching them come in with their catch. It’s so interesting. And how in the world do they control those makeshift “mattress rafts”? I think I would most definitely be in the water.
The shirt is so appropriate. Just about anything makes her feel like dancing! That’s how I know she is happy.

She disappeared right after she opened the gift and I found her in the bathroom already hard at work with her masterpiece.
So cute. And it washed out so easily.
