Today we went to the Somerset West Lake so Maya and Kiet could have one last playdate before we all go home tomorrow. We didn't bring our swimsuits because we figured Miss I'm Afraid of Everything wouldn't want to have anything to do with the swimming pool. Well at first she didn't want anything to do with the wading pool. But then she saw Minh swimming like a fish in the BIG pool and started to climb in. We had to dip her in while crouching on the side of the pool! Kiet, who previously didn't want much to do with swimming either, decided that what Maya was doing looked like fun. I'll try to upload the video. Kiet looked just adorable in his little blue and white striped swim suit!
We were also able to visit with another Holt Family, Rebecca and Anthony from Philadelphia who had just picked up their son, (Little) Anthony. They all seemed to be adjusting very well.
After swimming we all headed downtown to meet Jud and Blaine Curry for lunch. On the way we passed St. Joseph's Cathedral.

Tomorrow we check out at 8am and head to the airport. We have an 8 hour layover in Taipei, followed by an 11 hour flight to Seattle. That sounds like so much fun with a 2 year old! (Please keep us in your prayers.) I'll update the blog when we get to Seattle. My big girl Sarah (the original Femme Fatale) will be joining us there. Maya has a playdate with the Ronda Twins Saturday night!
