We took Morgan for his first swim the other day–he had a blast!! And, guess what, Ivonne???
He wore the blue swim trunks that we bought at the Gap that were 0-3 months. They fit perfectly!! I will post a photo later…right now I am quite self conscious about mommy’s white legs in the photos!
Since Morgan refuses to wear a hat, we have taken to strolling with the umbrella from the hotel. It keeps the VN grannies from fussing at us and it provides a bit of needed shade.
Today, we visited Craftlink–a non-profit organization that sells local crafts and uses the proceeds to benefit rural villages. I bought a lovely silk purse for less than 20.00 as well as a scarf. We haven’t bought much for ourselves on this trip–mostly just stuff to give to Morgan throughout the years. It was a nice treat.
Morgan had his morning nap in a wine tasting room today. We found a place called “L’amour du vin” and sampled a glass of Bordeaux in order to have a cool dark place for him to rest after visiting the Temple of Literature–which is just a short taxi ride from our hotel. Morgan enjoyed the sights and sounds–clapping and dancing to folk music and charming the ladies in the gift shop. They tell us he is quite intelligent–yep! So, it’s not just our prejudiced opinion!
