i think the theme of the movie is a little bit complicated to kids but rafael is surely enjoying it very much. he already kept talking about the movie ever since we left the cinema! but somehow i think rafael will not consider lord business an evil character as he himself is also obsessed with doing things in good order! : P
as for heather, i am sure she spent most of her time in putting on (or playing with) the 3d glasses properly... : P
time flies. can't believe that rafael is already 7, which means i have been a father for 7 years! i can still remember clearly that 7 years ago i sent amy to hospital by taxi and it took amy more than 12 hours in the labour ward to give birth!
happy birthday rafael, you are a big boy now!
and he is very pleased to have this harry potter lego game for his birthday gift. he is so into the harry potter fictions/movies lately.
i wish you can be a cheerful and happy boy from now on, rafael!
kids are always happy when they are invited to the kitchen for helping out, especially in preparing dessert. and this time the kids are extremely delighted not only because they are allowed to give helping hands, but also they can eat the glutinous dumpling fillings (maltesers!!) all along when they are rubbing the pastry!
well, as you may probably know - it ends up each of us can only share four pieces of dumpling because the kids already finished half pack of the chocolate in the course of the cooking.... : P
rafael just told me this today. be honest i am quite surprised to hear this. after all, there is no theme park (but there is water park in the hot spring hotel), no swimming pool and no kids club. i think he enjoyed this trip because he got another two kids as company in the journey, that they could entertain themselves most of the time!
indeed i enjoyed this trip a lot too. especially we did survive the "no-wifi-no-tv-minshuku". that is totally out of my surprise!
there are lots of playgrounds......
kids spend their time in reading when there is no ipad and tv : )
and card games too!
thank god...... the weather is awesome though the forecast said raining : P
we have been to taipei several times and it's time for us to explore some other attractions of taiwan apart from eslite and coffee alley.
thanks our friends for their thorough planning and making all the preparations, we finally set our destination to taitung - a place where we need to take a three-hour train from kaohsiung! but luckily kids can always entertain themselves throughout the whole journey by smartphones and snacks : P
taitung is such a nice place - surrounded by mountains and fields, and a lot of parks and playgrounds.
this children story house - i think the kids will be happy to stay there reading story books and comic books for a whole day!
this is the first time we came so close to the pacific ocean...
