Just as usual, Aiden is very eager to help out.
While Grandpa wasn’t looking, he snatched the broom to sweep the floor.
All that hard work, Aiden deserves a little reward.
Let’s reminisce with Daddie at 香港動植物公園.
Daddie says he left behind lots of 腳毛 behind there.
Time for Aiden to leave behind some 汗水.
表姑媽was our special baby sitter.
Holding Aiden most of the way.
Daddie and Auntie Monkichi took on the task of Mosquito bait.
No bites on Aiden! Thank you!
Aiden enjoyed looking at the apes that were more active.
When we were done it was time to check out the plants.
This was the longest Aiden was willing to have the hat on.
Normally his hands would grab it and throw it on the ground.
He seemed pretty awed by the garden.
This was the rest and restroom break time.
It was a perfect time for Aiden to appreciate his surroundings.
He loved walking at this area for some reason.
Aiden wants to be helpful again, so we let him dispose of the empty bottle.
To Aiden, it was a big accomplishment.
He couldn’t help but go back again to throw away other things.
We both feel that Hong Kong seems to fit Aiden perfectly.
This busy lifestyle and streets full of people seems to be made just for him.
Plus so many of us to play with him and spend time with him.
He will miss Hong Kong dearly.
Aiden is pretty good at observing how one should behave.
On his own he held onto the pole.
Aiden also went to the beach for the first time.
With shoes on, he adjusted quicker to the sandy surface.
He was cautious to move forward.
Grandma had to do some prodding to get him to play withe his toys and the sand.
That definitely worked.
But Grandma played with the sand more than Aiden.
Aiden explored the sand in different ways.
He felt the texture of it with his hands.
At first he would touch it with one finger, then asked me to assist him in wiping it off.
Then he allowed a few more fingers and part of his hand to touch it.
However, since he doesn’t quite like the texture he didn’t ever put his whole hand in the sand.
Grandma also showed him that when sand is stuck on his hands he can clap to get it off him.
He caught on very quickly.
He was done with the touch of sand that he wanted to explore it to another degree.
Eating the sand!
Mommie wasn’t fast enough to stop Aiden!
When Daddie was small he helped another child get sand out of his mouth.
It appears he needs to help his own son this time!
I’m sure he ate a few drops of sand, but he’s fine.
But he did not attempt to walk towards the water.
Instead he walked away from it.
So we felt it was time to go!
Look at how Aiden holds his pail!
Like in the movies when the main actor would take off his jacket and hold it with the jacket hanging behind him.
An older lady helped us fetch a pail of water for Aiden.
Time to wash his hands and feet.
Let’s play on the playground Aiden.
Though he wasn’t anxious to come here, as he wanted to continue to explore.
It’s been a while on the swings so he preferred going down with his back facing the sky.
He was more interested in the view than playing.
But it was very slippery so we didn’t stay here long either.
It’s time to change out of your swimming wear!
I can’t believe that there is a temple by the beach. (not in the photos)
Mommie has only seen the tall buildings on TV.
Thank you Daddie for proposing to take some family pictures!
Even though Aiden wasn’t very willing.
Mommie has her own fun taking a picture in front of the huge Kobe Bryant statue.
A big part of the trip was for Auntie Monkichi’s “wedding.”
Congrats to his beloved 表姑媽媽 <3 <3 <3
