Bangkok Day 1 - Spring Break 2009

Our first day was spent touring The Grand Palace, Wat Pa, the local shopping area, taking a boat up the river and eating some awesome food at the Hard Rock Cafe. It was really a cultural experience to see some of the history of Thailand and also to see how people live today.

Looks like a great trip - the architecture is amazing! How are the kids settling in to life in Asia?

Oh my goodness the pictures are AMAZING..it's like I have seen on TV my whole life. You never expect it to 'really' look like that in person..so much for what I know..ha
I am so glad you and Matt took those family shots..they are fantastic!!!!! Keep the pictures coming...It's so need to see how other parts of the world live and how blessed you are to be able to experience that and strong enough in your faith to rely on God to make it thru it all and get out of your comfort zone!!
