moving update

 The final days are here! This past weekend was spent packing, taking apart furniture and trying to get a few projects done at the new place. Our place is pretty packed up... we took down all the packed boxes over the weekend and have friends coming on Wed. to take down the furniture. The main room (living/dining areas) are painted, but thats all for now. Please pray the painters can finish up a couple of bedrooms in the next few days so we have more room to put our stuff. They should be finished up bu the end of the week so this weekend we can really unpack. we will probably be living there for a couple of days while they finish up.

 Found this treasure in the closet.... MORE 15 yr. old WALLPAPER!

Hong Kong Krazies: Wet Market Mania

 In Hong Kong we have grocery stores. They are pretty normal looking (smaller isles, selection, and more asian goods), but still "normal" food shopping. Then there are the markets...almost every area of town has their own wet market... I'm not sure about the name, but I think it comes from the fact that the whole place gets hosed down every night. They are inside markets where you can by everything (usually including the kitchen sink!) :o) The main products are food... fruit, veg, and meat. But there are other random shops selling other random goods... shoes towels, a key maker, flowers, etc.
I have yet to purchase meat from a stall like one of these... but it makes for some good pictures. I do buy lots of fruit and veggies from the markets becuase the selection and price are quite good compared to the store.

Mothers Day Weekend and a house update...

 We spent almost the entire day on Saturday out shopping. We hit up IKEA in the morning for new handles for the cabinets and new light fixtures in the house. We did make it home for some swimming in the afternoon. Then we spent the evening shopping for a new fridge and washing machine. Jack didn't nap, but crashed out during our shopping.

Max is teething and addicted to ice. He stands by the fridge and says, "ice, ice" until someone comes over and gives him some.
 Sunday afternoon we did a few projects down at the new place. We move in just over a week, yikes!
 Keeping the boys happy in the construction zone.
 How it looks as of this morning. (monday) walls are all plastered... hopefully paint on this week. Plumbing is mostly done. (bathtub in progress!)

camping weekend

 Gregg came out and joined us for lunch before he flew back to the US.  We also had a few other friends from school come out for the day. It was suppose to be a big group, but as it was raining the morning we were headed out... the group dwindled! Fortunately for us, the weather was perfect once we arrived at the beach!

 naps in the tent

 Jack mixing the pancake batter...

 a beautiful morning!
