Dad here.  We knew that Sydney and Piper would be celebrating their birthday on our Big Trip… and since they had to forego a timely birthday party with friends and dinner at their favorite Seattle restaurant (Tokyo Steakhouse!)  … we booked a 7-day cruise down the Danube River with “Adventures by Disney” in part as a kid-friendly birthday for them!

Here’s Piper describing part 1 this “Adventure” including Pokemon Go, salt mines, marionettes, creepy coffins and a Mozart Concert…

Twins talk China: We Ate Chicken Feet!

Note from Dad:   The twins decided that for their next blog post, they’d interview each other on the topic of “foods in Asia”.   The interview below is Sydney asking the questions and Piper providing the tasty answers…

S: Which city did you like more Hong Kong or Shanghai?
P: Shanghai because we got to visit a Microsoft factory in a city nearby.  I also got to buy these things that are wheels that you attach to your shoes and roll around and they light up.  We also went to an acrobatics show where 7 people rode motorcycles in a round cage.

S: What is your favorite thing that you did, saw or ate?
P: My favorite thing I did in China was see the Microsoft factory.  I liked it because I got to see how my Surface was made. Continue reading
