Hong Kong

This past weekend me and the kids headed to Hong Kong to meet up with Jay who was there all week for work meetings. I have flown in the US with the kids alone but I have never embarked on a international flight before. It is very intimidating to me - so many lines, so much paper work, keeping track of the passports, customs all while making sure the kids stay happy and meltdowns are avoided. I knew the time would come when I would have to travel with them internationally alone at some point so I thought a short trip to Hong Kong would be the perfect way to rip off the band -aid. While it wasnt the easiest adventure or the most fun we got thru it ( I only cried once just kidding not sure if teary eyed counts as full on crying ) and ended up having a great weekend with Dad exploring Hong Kong. We were supposed to visit Disneyland on this trip but poor Pippa came down with a bacterial infection in her throat so we didn't want to push her too hard. Happily the kids got to see it this past  spring so it wasn't too much of blow to the trip. 

Off they go old pros

Hong Kongs Skyline is one of the prettiest I have seen. There is something about a huge city being tucked into the mountain side right along the water that takes my breath away.


We stayed at the Shangrila which was lovely the best part was their amazing crushed ice. All of my pregnancies I have craved ice and theirs was a perfect combination of soft but crunch ( I know weird preggo stuff )

Took the kids to the natural history museum

All of the malls had huge Christmas Trees which the kids loved

I shopped at the most darling baby store got me really excited for February

I also got to stop at my favorite bath store Lush which we don't have in Shanghai. Nothing makes me happier than a good book and warm bath at the end of the day

We tried out one of Gordon Ramsays restaurants called Bread Street Kitchen I had the macaroni and cheese and quinoa salad both of them were delicious
