Time is flying by too quickly. We’ve been out biking around town; there is a newly built bike trail that goes along the river just outside of town over to the Jinwi campground. It’s a wonderful little route; perfect distance for the kids.
Bryan and I even had a date night! We drove up to Everland to ride the best roller coaster ever…the T Express and enjoy some romantic lights in the rose garden.
Another Friday night found us hanging with the kids at the rock wall.
We also went to a nearby memorial museum that was just built a couple years ago. The first battle of the Korean war to include US / UN forces was just north of us in Osan city. A small memorial to mark the Task Force Smith battle was erected just after the war and a bigger one built a decade ago, but the new museum to accompany it it great. The highlight was a big topo map board that has video projectors walk you through the battle. Kids enjoyed it as well, and especially Avi who felt so emotional about the memorial section with pictures of all the troops that he wanted to put up a personal message on the thanks wall.
I have been busy cleaning out pots and prepping house stuff for our next big move. Bryan is prepping the car, and Avi enjoyed helping him out last weekend! They changed the spark plugs and brake pads.
Lastly, was the big Spring Fest at Camp Humphreys – the army base just south of us. We will miss such amazing military support and activities when we leave Korea. There were bouncy castles galore, craft tables, food booths, local Korean information, and bands playing on 3 stages. Bryan and I enjoyed sitting with a bunch of older Koreans from the local folk village to learn how to package up our hard boiled eggs in rice straw. Gary Sinise and the Lt. Dan band was the highlight at the end of the evening! We ended up leaving early, while his band was still playing, because Zoe hurt her knee pretty badly in a bouncy accident. I guess she got stuck under a bent down poofy thing and another kid jumped right on her. ouch!
