Aunt Pearl

We were lucky enough to have a second visitor this month! Luke’s younger sister, Pearl, came to stay for just over a week.

IMG_0192She didn’t have time for jet lag as thanks to Jude she was right into play time.

IMG_0194Later in the day we strapped both kiddos into the ergos and went for a neighborhood stroll.

IMG_0196Pearl was such a huge help with both boys and she even managed to keep our house so tidy while she was here- such a pro!

IMG_0312Mmm mmm- Gua Bao!

IMG_0460She did a few solo trips out to the playground with Jude and marveled at all the attention they got!

IMG_0337Our friend Yeats stopped by on the weekend to meet Toby and Pearl. These three went out for a Taiwanese lunch and ice cream while I stayed home with the boys.

IMG_0392We booked our babysitter one night and both got out with Pearl. We took her to the very fun and entertaining, Kanpai where you cook your own meat over a BBQ and they have all these quirky things you can do – like kissing someone for 10 seconds for a free beer. Of course, Luke and I couldn’t resist a challenge like that!

IMG_0409The rest of her time here we just hung out.

IMG_0492On her last day we took her to Din Tai Fung as there was no way she could leave here without trying their food.

IMG_0477She had to leave for the airport before the boys got up so we said our goodbyes the night before. Jude resisted her saying goodbye as, like all of us, didn’t want her to leave!

IMG_0525We forgot to take a group photo before Toby fell asleep!

IMG_0521Thanks again, Aunty Pearl! We can’t wait to see your beautiful face here again someone soon.
