|Eric and Molly's Adventure||
So It has been awhile since our last post, but in that time we have spent 10 days in Europe, 3 weeks at home and 1 crazy week back in Shanghai literally trying to dig out and get caught up. We had a wonderful time in Europe. We started in London which we had not been to in about 3 years -- it was great to spend time in an english speaking country! From there we were in Switzerland -- at our European Headquarters. This was a very busy meeting but we enjoyed getting to see that area and we had a couple of great experiences with outings we went on while we were there. One night we went to a traditional swiss dinner -- which was mainly cheese -- but they then brought out that big long horn that they blow...turns out by the end of the night each of us had to blow it as well....it was pretty funny and thankfully there are no pictures!
From Switzerland we went to Budapest -- a place I have always wanted to see it! We loved visiting that area and saw some amazing things. We have included pictures, and video's for you to look at if you are interested....We did get to go to a wine festival while there -- it was awesome -- local dancing, food, wineries and lots of laughter...it was very cool...
Then Eric headed to the US and Molly was back to Shanghai for a crazy week -- to meet up in Seattle on the following weekend....we got to be at home, and the lake over the next 2 weeks -- it felt great. The lake was amazing as usual -- we fished, boarded and did work -- but overall just nice to see family and friends. We had the Pink Shamrock Party which enabled us to see lots of people and catch up....another great thing for us and the PInk Shamrock is doing great.
As mentioned on the front page we did go to the Expo last weekend -- thank goodness we saw it, but it was absolutely crazy. There are so many people you can barely move and the lines to see everything were so long that we did not go into the pavilions. However to have seen it in person was a good thing, and something we won't forget because the scale and detail were over the top. All Eric and I could think about was the World's Fair in Spokane and how much smaller it was than this...
We are hanging in there -- but work is very crazy and there is so much to do -- time just flies by! We think of you all frequently - take care of yourselves and Happy Halloween (as a side note they do celebrate it over here - thank goodne
