Most importantly, THIS HOTEL HAS A POOL! I have two very happy boys! We will take them down before dinner for their first swim.
Below is the incredible view from our 33rd floor window. The stadium is really nice and I bet there have been many a person who booked these rooms to watch concerts down there! The second picture is out the window to the left. There are gardens on top of the buildings and this morning at 6:15, we saw someone doing their morning stretching exercises out on the rooftop patio.

|TB test- his eyes got really big when he saw his skin bubble up. LOL|
|Vaccinations 1&2 in left arm....|
|Vaccinations 3&4 in right arm. Ouch. No one told him he would be a pin cushion today!|

|You think Tommy is over all this? :-)|
Shamian Island is a pretty place to walk around. Lots of pretty landscaping and sculptures. They even had workout machines built into the boulevard area like palyground equipment. It was pretty interesting.

This afternoon we took a short walk (2 blocks) to IKEA. We laughed that we left America, flew to China, so we could shop at a Swedish store! LOL We had an IKEA when we lived in Minnesota, but the closest one to Charleston now is Atlanta. Plus, we were able to treat the while family to ice-cream cones and a drink for about $1 USD. TOTAL! NICE! I see more afternoon snacks in our future there.
By this time, we knew we had to hit the pool or face mutiny, so... down we went. Colin surprised me in that he was perfectly comfortable with holding his breath under water and he took right to the goggles, but he looked like a frog! He had no idea how to move in the water. He will be a great candidate for some Thoma Schooling "Pool School". Polish up your Chinese, Thoma!
Thanks for your continued prayers friends.
