We had the option of going to visit a Buddhist temple or hanging out on Shamian Island for the afternoon.
My boys have such fond memories of this place as Asher and I stayed on the island when we traveled for Vivienne and Dalton and I stayed here when we traveled for Tallula.
I kinda love it myself, for lots of reasons.
It has a Starbucks.
It’s full of quirky little shops.
Did they ever. And in opposite directions, no less.
Clementine knew the drill – she ran all the way to one end of the area, turned around and ran back.
Magnolia? Not so much. She started going in a direction and just kept on going – not even glancing back when we called.
You might *possibly* alternately interpret it as Clementine tattling on her little sister as loudly as possible, then celebrating when her escape efforts were foiled.
We headed back to the hotel with tired legs, full bellies and some sweet (if exhausting) memories made.
And it was.
