Our Daegu Trip

These photos were taken when we drove to Daegu last weekend. We stopped at Camp Walker army base first and then we took a taxi out into town to one of their major shopping districts. While at Camp Walker, we had lunch at Burger King and let the kids play for a while. We had a great time watching the kids play. EJ was very fond of the Korean girl in this pic. After playing with her for a little while, he introduced himself to the girl's mother and then brought her out of the play area to our table so that she could meet his parents. I laughed and told Rose that, even at a young age, EJ understands respectful customs.
The Koreans seem to have fresh produce available all year long, even when it is bitter cold outside. Here is a pic of a street produce store located on a busy corner.
The Academy shopping area in Daegu. The wind was really ripping through this street and we often took shelter inside the warmth of the small stores.

EJ was really into this bag. The minute he saw it in the store, he began asking for it. It was pricey so Rose tried to convince him to take one of the many other bags but he held firm to this particular bag. I told her to give up and get him this bag. I knew he would never be happy with another.

Nice weekend photos and i can really feel the cold through the photos. Your kids are so cute and you are such a sweet daddy to give in. I wonder what's the facial expression of Mommy Rose. hahaha

I read from my friend's facebook update that they had snow last week. Don't u think it's too early for snow these days over there?

Happy weekend John and thanks for playing this week.

The shopping area everywhere in the world is maybe the most interesting part of the city for women :):) Have a great day!

Hi John, I am surprised with EJ, after knowing him thru your posts that he is a shy little kid, hehehe (only camera shy). Both you and Rose are great parents and his respects take it from you.
I bet the shopping is fun in their area!
Its getting cold here now in the West Coast, just mid 50's in the early morning!

Good luck with your packing!
