sinking our toes in the Korean water for the 1st time

Because I didn't start this blog until a few weeks into our Korean adventure, I have yet to blog about all of the amazing memories from our first two weeks in Busan, South Korea.  As this blog serves as a written history of our family's adventures, it's important that I backtrack a bit and do some posts from our first two weeks here.  Enjoy!


This was our second day in Busan.  With our body clocks still off, the boys' worse than mine and my mom's, we woke up early again and took a nap somewhere in there.  We hung out in the morning and then decided to go for a walk up and down the boardwalk of the beach where we live.  We sank our toes into Korean sand and water for the first time, and for Parker, this was his first time at a beach ever.  The water was freezing!  Then, we found a really cool slide on the beach that the boys had a ball playing on.  We also came across a small park area full of trees and walking trails.  There's not much grass around here, so we pushed our stroller over tons of rocks, sand, and pine cones.  Great first afternoon at the beach!

Connar's train   :)
Boy, it was nice having Daddy around again to push those heavy little guys in that stroller.  :)  This is on the ground floor of our building.

 
 


Haeundae's motto: "Sun & Fun"!  It's written everywhere, even on drains.
basically big iPads you can rent/use on the boardwalk
They were setting up for some sort of wrestling competition.  I'm sad I missed that.
The Aquarium is on the boardwalk, and this is a stairway that leads down to the food court there.
 This is just hilarious!  Parker kept messing with Connar from the back seat of the stroller.  :)

Look at all the attention these two little white boys were getting!  So funny!  It's like they were celebrities.  People literally stopped to stare at them.










I kind of wish I liked real Korean food to just go and sit in one of these little booths.  So neat!


The car dealerships go UP, not out like in Houston.  There's not much room to build sideways.  It's all very crammed.

 




Haaaa!!  Parker was messing with Connar AGAIN!  It's no wonder Connar wanted to start sitting in the back for a while after this day.  :)
 
 

They have these pictures on the boardwalk that you can pose with, as if you're in the picture yourself.  When we walk by them now, Connar and Parker want to go pose next to them too, since they've watched people do just that for months now every time we stroll by this area.
 
 
 
 

Sleeping in the stroller almost never happens.  We must've worn him out this afternoon, on top of the jet lag.
