Today we went with our French and Italian friends (Alice Milner, as well as Stefania and Damiano) to the Sofitel, which is managed by Alice's husband. We sat out on the terrace under an umbrella by the lake on a 70 degree day - so pleasant!
Sophie and Alice's son Francesco played together and also had a wonderful time chasing each other around!
Jack was Mr. GQ in his tie (LEFT) and (RIGHT) Sophie giving a big hug to Francesco.
Here are the two gentlemen, Damiano and Jack... so cool!
Our tables on the terrace, overlooking the city and the lake. Gorgeous!
The taxis on the street below. We always love to see the green lights in the windows of the available taxis.
Peter was thrilled to receive a giant hamburger which he polished off in no time. Then he sat in the sun and read his book; he was so content!
Our friend Alice, whose husband manages this beautiful hotel. (Jack took this picture!)
A gigantic Dragon Boat on a cruise off in the distance...
Here is Sophie, levitating off the rock. Her feet rarely touch the ground!
Jack was so good with the little kids. He let them push him off the rock and he made a big show of it which they LOVED. On the right - possibly one of my favorite pictures of Sophie that captures her joie de vivre!
A cityscape of Hangzhou on this beautiful day.
Jack learned to tie a tie today, and here it is flying in the wind as he launches himself off of the boulder by our table.
Our two little gentlemen, so well behaved at this luxury hotel. Thanks Stefania for these pictures, and Alice for the wine and dessert!
Taking a break with their candy boxes... Sue opened her chocolate box up that the hotel had given her for Mother's day and came to find the chocolates were... GONE! The thief (Sophie) had chocolate around her mouth!
