Hyrum has been fantastic - very easy to manage with no tantrums and barely any fussing. He allows me to comfort him quickly whenever he does fuss. He had lots of smiles today when he was playing with a remote control car in the department store and he giggles constantly when I blow up a balloon and let it fly all over the room. He takes cover, but still laughs.
Bria seems to be taking a little longer to bond with Deanne and had a little melt down today, but overall is doing really well. Deanne will have to update the blog when she gets back to the computer this weekend. We put international texting on our ATT plan before we came. We get 50 texts each for $10 for the month. That has gotten us by during the days and I have called her hotel from mine every night. That is about $4 or $5 dollars for 30-45 minutes, but so worth it.
The safe situation was rectified quickly yesterday. The hotel ended up sending up a guy with a drill and he pretty much destroyed the safe to get it open. I took my things out of it and they hauled it away and replaced it with another one. I hope that doesn't show up on our bill at check out time...
I found out today that Hyrum is actually pretty proficient at chopsticks. I have included a picture of him taking care of a bowl of noodles with other photos from the adventures today.
He's better than me with those sticks.
All dressed up for the finalization!

The restaurant in the Garden Hotel. The hostess was worried that Rob and I were too tall for that table. She was right!
