simplymodernmom Curiosity at the museum. #lifeof4birdgirls 5d
  •   wendyhadley Which museum did you go to? 5d
  •   simplymodernmom @wendyhadley this was fernbank. It's museum week till Friday and you get 2 for 1 admissions when you register. 5d
  •   wendyhadley Yeah, we are trying to decide where we want to go. Fernbank is one of our choices, but we are also debating the botanical gardens and the delta flight museum. Decisions, decisions!! Did your girls enjoy Fernbank? 5d
  •   simplymodernmom @wendyhadley it was ok. The kids spent most of the time in the kid area. I would go to botanical gardens instead though. It was raining the day we were going so we did fernbank instead. 5d
  •   simplymodernmom @wendyhadley we love the botanical gardens. And they have a splash pad so bring change of clothes just in case. :) 5d

simplymodernmom Baby girl won't let me put clips in her hair anymore. So now we do pigtails far back where she can't reach. I love having girls born with lots of hair. #lifeof4birdgirls 6d

simplymodernmom Sorry, but this had to be posted. As disgusting as it is, public bathrooms in Taiwan are the worst! I'm sure other Asian countries have the same bathrooms. But I hated these squatting toilets. The bathroom floors are always wet, stinky, and so dirty. You can't flush anything down the toilet, including toilet paper. Hence the waste basket on the side. And many bathrooms are without toilet paper, definitely no paper towels and most of the time without hand soap. Eeww! #pingtaiwanadventure Ok, you can unfriend me now. 3w
  •   barlowfam5 Yuck! So did you carry toilet paper and hand sanitizer with you wherever you went?? I would!! 3w
  •   aaspinetti Where is the throw up emoticon? Feeling oh so grateful! 3w
  •   cboice22 Oh man yes I remember hating these in India. I got in trouble with the guard/maintenance guy at the place we were staying for clogging the toilet. One teeny tiny toilet paper square was all it took to clog it up. Yuck yuck yuck 3w
  •   jillie_o During my first trip to Japan, I encountered a lot of squatting toilets. But lately, most of the public toilets have been upgraded and have a fancy bidet spray now 3w
  •   simplymodernmom @barlowfam5 yes! I had toilet paper and sanitizers in my purse and took it with me every time. 3w
  •   simplymodernmom @ameliorateme those were my exact thoughts! 3w
  •   anniesuef Korea and Japan. Ugh. Same same. Some places would have one western toilet, but that line gets a little long. Hahahahaha! I went to Taiwan once, for a few days. My uber blonde kid was cry popular there (and all of Asia). 3w
  •   danamadeit Uggggghhhh 3w

simplymodernmom Heading home. Bittersweet. Will miss my family here in Taiwan and so much about this amazing country and culture. But so ready to see my peeps! Missing @natebird and my girls! Here's to the next 12 hours on the plane and a quick layover (hopefully I make it through to customs in time) and then another 5 hour flight home. #pingtaiwanadventure 3w

simplymodernmom And what's a trip to Asia without some Hello Kitty love?! She is huge in Taiwan too. #pingtaiwanadventure 3w
  •   lautaha_hafoka Haha cool! I always forget Hello Kitty originated in Asia (China?) 3w
  •   jennyuye @lautaha_hafoka Japan. 3w
  •   nbcheung My fav hello kitty sighting was in a truck in HK. The dash was covered with tons of figurines of all sizes. And then I saw two men get in and drive off, haha! 3w

simplymodernmom Pizza Hut! American restaurants I've seen here are Starbucks, Burger King, Wendy's, McDonalds. Sad that's what we offer here. We have much better restaurants than those fast food places. #pingtaiwanadventure 3w

simplymodernmom Trying to fit in. We should wear masks more in the states. People here wear them if they are sick or want to prevent getting sick in public places. #pingtaiwanadventure 3w

simplymodernmom They do "mind the gap" in Taiwan subways too. #justlikeengland But everyone looks down the entire ride using their phones. They call it the look down generation. #pingtaiwanadventure (sorry for the overload of posts) #sorrynotsorry 3w

simplymodernmom Lunch at a vegetarian buffet that is a frequent favorites of Taiwan monks. They had some foods that were flavored and looked like meat but was really made from vegetables. It was actually all quite delicious! #pingtaiwanadventure 3w
