Molly Turns 4

Molly turned 4 on January 30 and we had a party for her in our apartment. She invited 5 friends, their siblings and parents and we ended up with quite a party. We grilled and talked and ate. At the end, we even had fireworks in the street. It was a pretty amazing site and the kids loved it. Molly was excited by the new camera she got as well as all of the Barbies. She loves playing with her Barbies and acting things out. She is also having fun playing with her new puppet theater! Now, I am hoping 4 is easier than 3.

Chinese New Year

We had a week off during the Chinese New Year holiday and we decided to head downtown for a few days with some friends. We stayed in an apartment/hotel near Old Town and had a great time. We went to Yu Yuan Garden, wandered around the Old Town Area, went to the Bund and went through the sightseeing tunnel and had lunch in Pudong. We even attended a circus and watched in awe as a bike broke away from one of the riders and flew into the front row and landed on a lady in the audience. It was an action-packed few days and it was fun to play tourist for a while.
