Hi all!  Sorry it has been a while since I last posted!  David has been really busy working, which means I am really busy at home with the boys! :)

We are doing well.  We have some friends (Angela and Wes) visiting us from the US, so it has been fun to show them around and share some of our favorite places!  They have taken a ton of pictures, so we will reap the benefits of their excellent photography skills. 

I took the boys back to Hong Kong Park the other day.  There is a big sand pit there and we brought some dump trucks to play with.  There was another little Chinese boy there who had a backhoe and they all took turns sharing their toys.  It was fun and I got some great shots of them playing with the trucks.

We will celebrate Will's 3rd birthday on Wednesday October 29.  I will be sure to post pictures. I think we are planning to take him to Ocean Park (kind of like Sea World) on Friday to celebrate his birthday as well as Halloween (they have a big show for Halloween).  I can't believe he is turning 3!!!

Not much else new to report!  Still trying to adventure out to new spots.  I miss the fall foliage of VA though.  It is still 80-90 degrees here, although not as humid as it was previously.  It does not seem like the end of October for sure!

Will post again later this week!

Please pass this on...


Hong Kong Park

Hello!  We adventured today to one of the big parks on Hong Kong Island called Hong Kong Park.  It sits right in the middle of the business district, so you are surrounded by skyscrapers, yet it is absolutely beautiful!  They do a fantastic job of landscaping and there is a lake stocked with lots of fish and turtles for the kids to see.  There is also a conservation area which has lots of different plants to view (with names labeled and a history of the plant).  There is an aviary as well but we did not go in today because there was a steep flight of steps and I had the stroller with me and didn't feel like lugging it all the way up!  To top it all off, there was this amazing children's playground with SIX different levels.  Each level had different things to climb and play on.  One was a big sand pit with diggers, which of course Will loved.  It was one of the best parks I have ever been to.  Seriously!

Enjoy the pictures!
