There is our fabulous hotel on the end of the pier!

My hotel room!! The nicest hotel I have ever stayed in and I had the room all to myself!! Yes I did take a bath and wore my robe and slippers! Definitely spoiled!

On the top deck of the skytower there are these glass panels you can walk on and see below!

We got to "hangout" with Sera in the hotel! It felt backwards to me because usually she is with them when we "hangout"

All in all it was amazing having my parents here! I loved showing them this country that is so close to my heart and the things that I love here! I loved teaching them how to drive on the left side of the road and laughing when they made their way to the right side accidentally! I loved spending time with them and laughing and enjoying things that I used to take for granted! But I also had more confirmation from the Lord that I am exactly where I am supposed to be and He has plans that I could never dream of still in my future!
