A big day...

Well...yesterday was my last official day of nursing my "baby"...who turns 2 next month...haha.  I thought he would put up a huge fight (he was only nursing at night both before bed and if he woke up in the middle of the night).  He cried for about 5 minutes tonight while we were reading stories in bed.  Then he just gave up!  It took him a while to fall asleep, but he wasn't mad about it.  *whew*  Now, lets hope the rest is smooth sailing!

Here are a few photos I took of the boys yesterday at the park.  They really are getting SO big...

And one that Will took of me and D-pax:

Big fun at Playtown!

The rainy season is in full swing in Hong Kong, so we have been trying to find indoor activities that will still allow the boys to run and burn energy.  I came across a place called Playtown, which is essentially an indoor play area with tons of climbing structures, tunnels, fast slides, bounce house and a whole area devoted to these "guns" that use air to shoot soft nerf-like balls.  It is any kids dreamland.  Needless to say, the boys had a blast there (as did we!).

Here are a few of the fun photos from our outing.  I had to use my flash a lot in order to catch the boys...otherwise all you could see was a blur as they were racing by...LOL!

The Ball area:

Ride on cars...always a big hit:


A fun day had by all...

A few of my favorite things...

So I realized the other day that I don't think I have posted many pictures of the Hong Kong skyline which is really amazing and completely unfathomable to anyone who has not seen it live.  There is just no way you can take a picture that grasps the magnitude of how huge it is (because it literally won't fit into one picture!).  But are a few shots that I recently took.

The first two pictures show the HK skyline as seen from the "Peak"...atop the mountain that is in the middle of Hong Kong Island.  The water in the middle is Victoria Harbour which separates Hong Kong Island from the Kowloon side of Hong Kong.

This following picture is actually looking out over Kowloon side at night from a building in Tsim Sha Tsui (the area where we live on Kowloon side).  The large green space just outside the building is Kowloon park where we often play.

And finally, here is the view from the window of our flat...looking out over Hong Kong Island both during the day and at night.

Pretty spectacular, huh? :)  You should see it in person...seriously.

I also took some great pictures of the boys playing this weekend in Victoria Park.  They are both getting so big!

Happy Tuesday!
