From sun to rain and back again, our trip to Thailand was a good one. The full video is linked in my profile.
Troy's face says it all. Being a dad with this crowd is no cakewalk. Thanks for putting up with us @troyst721
I'd be toast if I had to carry one brick up into the mountains. Truly remarkable.
While on the Andaman Sea, we participated in the Thai tradition of Loi Kratong. Every year on the last full moon of the lunar calendar, tiny rafts are built from banana tree trunks and decorated with folded banana leaves, flowers, candles and incense. They are released into the water as a sign of gratitude and to bring good luck. Our guide spent 2-3 hours making our kratong and let us help with the finishing touches. We kayaked into a cave at sundown to light it, make a wish and send it into ocean.
We spent our last day in Phuket on the water. We got off the main boat several times to kayak through caves leading to private lagoons. We staked out spots on the front of the boat to lay under the stars and watch the moonrise on the way home. It was magical. 🇹🇭
Nothing but blue skies and a long stretch of beach in Phuket.
We watched a few beautiful sunsets nestled in between the jungle and the sea.
Pad Thai by day, Thai massage by night. #alldayeveryday
They look cute but it's not as cute when they open your balcony screen doors and raid your minibar for snacks. 🐒 #monkeyseverywhere #terrifying
Good evening Thailand, good morning USA.
A treacherous climb through the jungle was worth it for this once in a lifetime adrenaline rush. I still can't believe we jumped.
Just when we thought we couldn't keep our eyes open any longer after a long travel day in 500 percent humidity, a local convinced us to take a Longtail boat ride around the canal. We had the boat to ourselves at sunset and it was the perfect way to end our 11th anniversary. #ormaybebegin #idontknowwhatdayitis
Two urgent care visits and one ER trip within 24 hours. That's got to be some sort of record, even for us!
I threatened to leave the park multiple times and when we did leave we were dripping wet. Despite the frequent want-to-pull-my-hair-out moments, I think we had fun. Or maybe some of us did. Either way, we couldn't pass on SeaWorld field trip day. #youwinsomeyoulosesome #fourboysandme #nexttimewellsticktodisney
If they were easy to corral, it would take all the fun out of it. #somedayillmissthis
