I know there are elections and campaigns going on all of the world. The US, Arab nations, ect. But there is also a changing of power much more local to us. It is a battle going on inside of our family. Cali is not letting go of her status of power too easily. Mia seems to be oblivious to the battle going on around her. Mia , at this point is easily distracted but I know that will most likely change too. Give the kid a spoon and a container containing cereal or crackers makes her happy. Throw in some noodles and broth and she is good for an hour.
There is a little outside play area set up at the hotel. It's actually
nice because it is outside and completely contained so Cali & Lily
can be "free". It has a nice garden and some fountains. The pool is nice
too, if I would have known how nice it was I would have brought a swim
tube for Mia. I even went in, I know shocking!
We bought some nice things for our kids at home and for some of
Madison's friends. I bought my mom and I matching tea sets. Not sure
how I am going to get some of the stuff in our suitcases, but I have
TV has been fun to watch. Cali's new favorite movie is Fast and Furious
2. Lily is liking Erin Brokovitz. Don't ask. Madison is catching up on
every movie from the past 5 years or so. But at least they are in
English. When we traveled for Lily we watched Stuart Little in Chinese
several times. Table tennis was big on TV then too.
