i have been a slacker blogger these past couple of days, but we have been relatively busy. friday was livie's half birthday, and i'm big into half birthdays, so we got out for some light celebrating with a small park adventure and some special lunch and snacks. we also made some special strawberry cupcakes that afternoon. that night, josh and i got out for a date and had some terrific english/irish food and did some light shopping in kowloon.
on saturday, josh took the kids to see mr. popper's penguins while i got some stuff done around the house, and then we all met up for lunch. we also went into causeway bay in the evening to try to find a navy blue skort for olivia. school starts in 3.5 weeks, and her new uniform includes a navy blue skort. we perused no less than five kids' clothes stores in causeway bay, but did not find what we need. it looks like we will have to order from amazon and hope it gets here in time.
today was a big day in that josh and livie got a date day while q and i chilled out mostly at home. livie's big date with daddy included getting her ears pierced!!! she's been wanting to do this for a long time, and she is thrilled. as much as she was worried about the pain, the report is that she barely flinched. q was in a really low-key mood today, so he and i mostly just chilled with a side of ice cream and small toy adventures. this evening, we all went over to kennedy town pool and then out for a western-style dinner at the mo-mo cafe that we went to with our chicago friends.
it was a great weekend!
my big girl with her pierced ears!
