Shanghai

If you followed along over the holidays with our family on Instagram, you may have noticed the adventure we embarked on.

We kicked off our holiday excursion with a flight out of Chicago en route to Shanghai. Everett desperately wanted to recreate the scene from Home Alone. I did not.

Upon landing there, we had a 23 hour layover, so we headed to our hotel in the hopes of getting a few hours of sleep.

After getting what felt like just a few hours of sleep, the kiddos were up and we headed out to see the sights along the Bund.

With all these kids and blonde hair, we were a bit of a tourist attraction ourselves. The crew loved stopping to take photos with passersby!

Our next stop was The Westin Shanghai for their world renown Sunday brunch. With bottomless Veuve Clicquot and two floors of food, what’s not to love?! It is a MUST if you are ever in Shanghai on a Sunday!

Each weekend is a different theme, and while we were there they were celebrating the food of Great Britain.

When we’d had our fill of bubbles and bites, we rolled ourselves back to the airport to catch our flight to Phuket.
