Lifes a beach!

We have a long weekend with Monday being a holiday, so we decided to enjoy the amazing weather. We went camping on a beautiful beach here in Hong Kong for Sat. night and had a great time. We hiked in to the beach in the morning, with a quick stop off at a rock pool, with a place to jump off. That is where we took the great family pic, where Jack is under the hat :o)

Overlooking where we are going to camp. Bryan carried Jack and I carried all our stuff. They were pretty even loads :o). We didn't bring a tent (rented one out there) or any food (theres a Chinese restaurant on the beach). So we were able to hike in pretty light....

Enjoying a late lunch with our friends and setting up the tent. Then we cooled off with a nice dip in the ocean. Jack had the time of his life. He really doesn't seem bothered by the salt water.

After playing hard, Jack passed out in the tent for a nap! :o)

Here's our early morning sand time with Jack. He slept like a super star during the night (way better than Bryan and I), but was up with the light shortly after 6 :o)
We spent today hiking to an even more remote beach and swimming some more before taking a boat back to civilization. I think we were all glad we didn't have to hike out. What a great way to enjoy the weather, nature, family and great friends!

Fall Festival

This past sat. was the annual ICS Fall Festival. Bryan had to go early for some duties, but Jack and I made it in after a morning nap. He loved exploring and checking everything out. We enjoyed catching up with other teachers and parents, what a great day!

We got Jack a Mickey Mouse balloon hat, he wore it for a long time...

Mickey Mouse Meltdown!

Jacks treat of the day was enjoying his very first juice box. It was also the first time he has had juice, and he really enjoyed it! So fun to see his excitement...

Jack enjoyed playing a few games at the fair. We waited until the end of the day when the lines were gone... Patience is not a virtue he knows yet :o)

Grandmas visit

its been great having my mom here! Jack warmed right up to her, and they have been having a great time together. Sat. we took a day trip over to Macau and enjoyed the great weather. We first took in the older part of the city, it was a great view from the fort.

Jack wanted to jump in the fountain!

We hit the beach after a great lunch and Jack really got into the sand! And the water, too, he was covered! Took awhile to get him a washed off in the shower!

We finished the day by heading over to the Venetian and taking in the show Zaia. It was great! Bryan watched Jack while mom and I went as little ones aren't allowed in.. What a great day!
