The day Dad arrived in Beijing from his trip, Mom the kids and I drove up to meet him. Mom and Dad had made arrangements to stay in a hotel near the airport for a couple of nights to rest and have a little vacation! The hotel had an outside pool for us to swim in and lay out by!!! Outside pools are not very common in China so we enjoyed our time a lot! When my Dad met us at the hotel he brought some goodies back with him from America including the new monopoly game that uses credit cards, and some yummy snacks! The second night we were in Beijing we went out to dinner at a restaurant called Peters that serves western food and that’s only in Beijing. Then we got to go to Starbucks which was a real treat!!! At Starbucks my Dad ordered the wrong thing on accident and the workers just let us have it for free then made him a new one!! Plus they were both venti! 🙂 We had a lot of fun!
