Hubby and I really wanted to dive on this trip; however having so many little ones sometimes puts a damper on things like diving. All the really good dive sites were too far to travel without the kids & we couldn't very well leave them on the boat while we went diving. While we were at Ya-Nui on day 5 we noticed a little dive shop across the street, while this isn't the best spot for diving, it was a good spot for us. We left the 3 little ones in the kids club in our hotel & Hubby, Boy 1, myself and a couple of our friends headed back to Ya-Nui for a shore dive.

Visibility was poor, but we still had fun.
Our friend F, this was his first dive.
My second favorite part of diving......the drinks afterwards! Singha beer was our favorite in Thailand - they were big and cheap.
After diving we headed back to the hotel picked up the kids and took them to dinner. On the way to dinner everyone rand so far ahead of me and Boy 3 we couldn't keep up, so I yelled "STOP" and this is what they did....goofballs!!
Fun times at dinner.....
Girl really liked all the dogs in Thailand, so for her, here is a picture of the dog that sat across from us while we ate dinner...
After dinner we hit the streets for a little shopping, but first we had to find the a banana pancake stand!!
OMG these things were good!!!
After having a few banana pancakes and a bit of shopping we took the kids back to the hotel and put them to bed, (Boy 1 babysat) and then Hubby and I headed out for more fun, and PAIN. Look what we did...yes; we felt this place was appropriate.....
Whoever said tattoos don't hurt, well they LIED!! Mine only lasted 4 minutes, but dear God, I wanted to cry.
Hubby didn't even flinch......
Hubby has been bugging me for 15+ years to get a tattoo with him, I have always refused, but when he came up with this idea, I was game. He has yin, and I have yang. We got this tattoo for a couple for reasons, the Korean flag has a form yin & yang in it (so it marks our time in Korean), we were in Thailand for vacation (so it marks our time in Thailand) and it was a small tattoo so I thought I might be able to handle it. But the main reason I caved and got a tattoo with him is because of the meaning of Yin & Yang. It totally fits us....I could not exist without him.
Yin-Yang represents the ancient Chinese understanding of how things work. The outer circle represents "everything", while the black and white shapes within the circle represent the interaction of two energies, called "yin" (black) and "yang" (white), which cause everything to happen. They are not completely black or white, just as things in life are not completely black or white, and they cannot exist without each other.
