Thanks to Grandma and Grandpa for coming such a long way, bringing us so many things, so many gifts, and some of these great family pictures.
|Mother' day present:|
Water heater and installation
|"Now you can take a hot bath whenever you want mom!!!|
Do you want me to pick out your clothes?"
|More mother's day gifts|
|Abigail walking at the park|
|Starting a leaf collection|
|Amazing imagination adventures|
|Discovered a new "flavor" of yogurt.|
We have plenty of love around here already, so we don't know
what this tastes like or if it works.
|Funny animal game:|
4 people each made one part of an animal and then put it together and
come up with a story about it.
This would be fun with the cousins someday!
|At a famous park on a river sort of nearby|
|Flower crown grannies.|
The pushiest saleswomen you'll ever meet.
But we did by some.
|The minority waterwheels are famous here.|
|We got a picture alone together!|
|Scenic drive to the river|
|Using the water wheel to mill|
|Epic chess battles|
|Epic Uno battles|
|We are a lot of jiao zi|
|Family movie time and Andrew giving grandpa a very "warm" (or perhaps just hot)|
|We tried fire ginseng|
|It really wasn't bad, but I wouldn't go out of my way to get it either.|
Kind of like very tart orange taste combined with an overripe cucumber center texture.
|Grandma Sharla wins Abigail over with ice cream and chocolate|
|Reading The BFG and having tea parties and building Knex|
|Sharing with Grandpa John|
|You know that time you and grandma went shopping and you got 170 eggs?|
(80 were basically free)
This was that time.
|Time to put the baby walker away when baby tries to climb in herself.|
|Grandma and Grandpa brought The BFG book and movie.|
Since we actually have something that very much resembles the movie version of
"Snozzcumber" we got one and had a BFG party.
|Snozzcumber, Frobscottle, and Dream Jar Jello|
|This is great as a centerpiece, not so great to eat.|
Actually, bitter melon is pretty terrible to eat.
|9 Dragon Waterfalls Panorama|
|There are probably thousands of stairs at this parks.|
If you go the right way it is mostly down, but still makes your calves ache.
|At the entrance of 9 Dragon Falls.|
(Also pushy flower crown saleswomen here.)
|At the Lover's Falls|
|New clothes grandma made!|
|Abigail absolutely loves her flowered metal tea set!|
|At the big park in town.|
Abigail's first ride.
|The boys loved this!|
And there is a picture with all 3 smiling!
|We also went to a "mall" that had a fairly new climbing structure the boys had never tried.|
|This turned out to be one of their very favorite things!|
