Chime Long Resort-China

 Its fall break here and that means a little get a away for the Thompsons! We headed into China to the Chime Long resort... a place many of our friends had been and we never had. Its like the Chinese version of Disney World... an amazing hotel surrounded my 5+ theme parks. You really could stay several days and hit up a theme park a day! We stayed for two nights and saw the amazing circus, spent a day at the water  park, a day at the animal safari, then headed home by bus to Hong Kong.
 The first afternoon we made ourselves at home in the room, then hit the pool in the rain.

 My mom would be proud... besides the free hotel breakfast we packed all our own food and didn't eat out, saving a ton of money.. this is how my family growing up always traveled. My mom would say, "its not an eating vacation... " :o)
 Our cool Safari room.

 nap time... doesn't he sleep cute!

 at the circus... unlike any I've seen before! More of a Cirque Du Soilei than circus...

Fun at the waterpark, even though the day was a bit rainy and not all that hot...

 the boys went down this little tube ride just the two of them in the tube over and over and over!!!
 jack could go on a few more...
 Bryan and I took turns staying with the boys while the other tried out the big water slides..
In front of the hotel...
 in the safari park...African Animal show..

 Lots of animals up close!

 and....a whole area of fake, moving, life size dinosaurs!! ;o)
 our room...
 Animal veiwing while you eat.
 We read the boys their first chapter book over the trip... they loved it!
