A Gloomy Day in Beijing

Well while it is not cold it is gloomy. The pollution is very bad so it looks like a gloomy about to rain day outside. But when you get out it is a muggy thick air day. I really would like the wind to come back and blow this smog away even if it means dust being blown around everywhere.

Zoe and I will be back for a visit alone in July from the 16-26. We will try to fit as many visits in as we can but also want it to be a vacation so we won’t be running around non stop. We will be staying at our usual hotel the Hilton by Metrotown.

I am looking forward to some clean air even if it is rainy. Zoe and I are hoping to make a trip to the Aquarium and do a few other fun things while in town. Of course there will be lots of shopping with the mall right across the street from the hotel. LOL Maybe I should bring empty suitcases and buy all my stuff there LOL. I am sure Steve would love that.

Zoe finishes school on July 5th then will be going to a summer camp there starting July 30. We won it at the Children’s day thing the school had so thought what the heck. She will start back in the fall on September 3. This Friday there will be school pictures if they turn out well I will try to bring a few back for everyone. Of course I will likely scan them in with my new scanner. I have lots of picutres up on facebook right now that I scanned in.

Steve is in the US right now and at this very moment he is in tthe casino playing poker. So far he is up overall but I am not sure if it will stay that way. I hope he is having fun. Zoe and I are sure missing him while he is away. Zoe is very sweet she will say “miss daddy” and “come home soon” over and over.

Today her friend from school Tiger is going to come over after school. She often wants to keep playing with him or asks if Tiger is coming when we get home. Hopefully they will enjoy playing or watching one of her movies together and looking at her fish. Then we are going to Mrs. Shannens for dinner. I promised her she could get an ice cream cone there this week. She had her first ice cream cone last week and it was a big hit. She really enjoyed it once I showed that you could eat the cone.

If you have a specific date and/or time you would like to visit us when we are in town please email me so I can pencil you in. Hope everyone is enjoying their summer and see you next month.
