Conner’s super cute helmet hair
Thai rice holder served with every meal
sticky rice-you eat it with your hands
daily afternoon rain storm heading our way
every morning I head into town and buy a bag of fried bananas-they run out around noon so I have to get there fast
battered and fried fresh all morning long
they are the brown ones on the left-they also have donuts, but they are not very good (clearly since they still have a huge stack left). The bananas though…..OH MY!
my moped buddy-sweet Peyton
special night out for Trek’s 16 month birthday
Conner and his 10 baht chicken leg-he gets one whenever he sees one, even if its for breakfast
Pai streets at night
this picture reminded me of how Conner is still just a little guy
gas station-Peyton thinks it is so cool how the guy manually pumps the gas up into the glass container
every store, restaurant, and house has a picture of the King and Queen of Thailand
most of the photos are of them when they are older, this one of the Queen when she is younger is my favorite-I think she is so beautiful
fresh flowers everyday picked from the many flowers growing around our house
my new key holder I bought at the market. I had to get it b/c it reminded me of Peyton and his toothless grin
I LOVE these loungers that Thais use, we bought one for the house, it is Conner’s favorite spot
the boys spotted these Ben 10 toys that they wanted. They picked out one of the little packages, but the man told us we had to buy the entire thing! He told us it was 50 baht. I was a tad shocked since that is $1.75-ummm-ok!
kitchen at a local restaurant we ate at
waiting in line by himself with 10 baht to buy yet another chicken leg
ahh man-there is even dirty dishes in paradise (another photo by Conner)
no hot water in kitchens here, just some soap and a prayer they get clean-hehe (even at restaurants there is not hot water to clean-i just don’t think about it and enjoy my Pad Thai)
(photo by Conner) rose outside our house-I think he is getting pretty good at this!
my two sweet guys sharing a Thai omelette
random pay and pump gas station on the side of the road and my dorky helmet
I have been so surprised and happy with Pai, Thailand. It feels so comfortable and homey even though as I look at these pictures I realize it is far from comforts or home! I think there is so many fun and unique and beautiful things it cancels out any inconveniences like squat toilets and questionably clean dishes!
