Olympic Park

Today we had a picnic in the park with Miller and Dora! We didn't go to just any park, we went to OLYMPIC PARK.


This is called World Peace Gate 



 We met Miller and Dora at World Peace Gate (which is not easy when you don't have a cell phone. It takes a lot of coordination via facebook beforehand. Fortunately, we'll be getting cell phones next weekend!) The 7 of us enthusiastically decided that we needed one of these 4 person bikes.

August got the best seat on the bike: in the front with a great view and no pedals.

 The pedaling was definitely more strenuous than I had bargained for. It was more "sweaty" than "carefree fun". The driver's pedal fell off 3/4 of the way around the park.

Overall, the weather today was perfect for a picnic. It was cooler than it's been and not as humid. We found a nice spot in front of a lake with a view of the World Peace Gate behind it. We brought American food to share (pb&j, cheetoes, oreos) and Miller and Dora brought Korean food (pasteries and sandwiches from Paris Baguette as well as Kimbop).

Look at this park! Isn't it so beautiful?!

 And, just like every place else in Korea, there was a playground!
Unfortunately there were a LOT of bees around, so it ended play time abruptly and we headed home


Now the kids are already ready to go to bed and it's not even 6:00. Overall, great way to spend our Sunday.
