With some coddling, some pics uploaded. We headed an hour away from home during the 9-day Chinese New Year holiday to a hotel with 2 sets of family friends. Critical ratio was 2:1 (kids to adults). Total numbers were 6 adults and 12 kids. It worked out great and the kids all had a blast. Parents did okay too. ; ) See some of the fun below:
We headed to a park by the sea one day. Kids enjoyed the mini-amusement park and riding the rented bicycle/minivan around the park. I should have grabbed a picture but imagine a Fred Flinstone-mobile with 2 "pedalers" and 2 kid seats in the front. With 3 bikes in action, there some serious Nascar action going on.
11 of the 12 (missing baby Ava) and not sure why the font went to hotlink. You might be able to pick ours out of the lineup as #2, #6, #9 and #10.
Movie night in one of the Bowman rooms.
And some of the swimmers on the way to the pool. Anna and Elijah are becoming quite the little swimmers. Rachel made great strides, er, paddles as well as she swam in her floatie solo-style. Of course, she made sure Mommy or Daddy were always within arm's length.
