We ventured back to the East side of West Lake today where we visited our favorite Indian restaurant, and then hung out near the lake on this warm autumn day. There is a small stream next to the restaurant that turns into a major water feature, which the kids loved playing with. Sophie found a leaf to float...
Sophie loved going back and forth over the rocks that were put as stepping stones across the water. All of the Chinese mothers cringed every time she hopped across. However, we are very aware of her Super Girl powers of levitation so we weren't worried.
Sue sat and watched the kids and tried not to look sleepy in the warm sun after a big afternoon meal. We all knew that her Weatbrook genes were kicking in to make her want to close her eyes!
The boys searched for awhile to find some way to gum up the water works...
... and they found it! They used some sticks and leaves to make a small dam for the algae that floated by. Jack was the engineer for a change as Peter was busy a lot playing with his hackey-sack.
Tim the blogger, on the wrong side of the lens for a change!

... and Sophie in her binary, but unpredictable states of ON and OFF.
