Family Vacation in Thailand

The Lamb family spent a well needed week in Phuket, Thailand.  We flew from Shanghai to Bangkok, then onto Phuket.  During the layover in Bangkok we were surprised and excited to see Krispy Kreme!  Always great to have an unexpected little taste of home.

We stayed at the JW Marriott Resort.  It was recommended by other families we knew as really "kid friendly".  There are lots of activities for the kids, as well as a kid's club area with video games, movies, crafts, etc.   Chris and I were also able to relax, read and enjoy adult beverages!

We took a speed boat one day and went to PhiPhi Island.  We all swam and snorkeled in the warm water.  The islands were beautiful and the water was so clean!  

One of the best perks of living in Shanghai is the ability to take trips like this.  To have an opportunity to spend time as a family in remote places and make memories we will always have.  Sometimes living in Shanghai, the pollution and daily obstacles can get overwhelming.  It's good to remember that it's not all bad, and there are good times as well.
