Concrete + 11 Million Friendly Faces = Bangkok, Thailand

If you've ever had the chance to go to Bangkok, you know what I'm talking about. If you haven't been (which is one reason we have this blog) lemme tell you... Bangkok is HUGE.

And it's made entirely of concrete.
Dirty, unevenly paved concrete.
Concrete that goes on forever.

But you can overlook that part if you can have a few days there like we just did.
If you ever go to Bangkok, make sure you do it with friends. If not, the concrete will eat you alive. Kidding...but what trip isn't more fun when friends are there!?!

Our friends just had a baby there... I have no clue if they want their daughter's picture all over our blog, so we'll limit it to these sweet little feet poking out of the carrier as we went out for DELICIOUS Lebanese food one night.
We also did touristy things like eat at Hard Rock Cafe...And visit the Grand Palace...I had a tank-top on and brought a wrap to put around my shoulders in order to obey the rules they have about dress at the Grand Palace, but the wrap wasn't enough so Anthony gave up his tshirt for me... what a great guy!Speaking of rules...we feel the last one listed is the most important. Danielle and David (the new Mr. and Mrs. Wiley) don't worry if you want to visit the Grand Palace someday... it says wily "Strangers"... you guys aren't strange so you shouldn't have a problem getting in... as long as you're not wearing a tank-top that is...Many of Bangkok's streets are lined with vendors selling anything and everything... Cara, in case you don't pass your dental boards in a few months, there is still a place in the world for you to use all that knowledge...
After walking a lot all day, to the above Cafe and Palace on said dirty concrete, I met up with yet another friend to get a foot massage (not allowed to have a full-body Thai massage until the baby gets here) while Anthony went with her hubby to get ice-cream. I don't have any pictures of it (just imagine me in a chair reclined with a sweet smiling Thai lady rubbing my feet and legs), but I had to mention it because the chatting my friend and I did was so memorable- thanks for the time CB!- plus, every Thai foot massage should be documented in some way.

It was a great few days and fun time with friends!

Love the new pics! I've been looking for them :-) Sharon, your belly is so cute! I love that we can finally see it now! You are such a cute preggo Mama!! I'll pass along the same info that I did to Andrea about foot massages when you're pregnant- my doctor always reminded me of this- when you get closer there are points on your feet that can inadvertently trigger labor- so they warned me all the time about foot massages- Random I know! Thanks for sharing all the fun that you had- even that little tiny baby foot hanging out of the carrier! Too precious for words! I know that made you so eager to hold little Isaac!! Love to you all!
