Parents have Jet Lag. What about Tony?

After 26 hours of being in cars, in buses, in airplanes, in airports, in security lines, waiting to claim baggage, and and going through customs, The K family arrived at Chinese Casa K about 700 pm, Monday. 
Later, at about 200 am, Andis was awoken by Tony jumping on him. 
The hardest part of trying to get the adult bodies of the K family on Wuxi time was Tony's seeming unawareness of the need to do so.
Tuesday 300 am, Tony was watching television.
Wednesday 530 am, the whole K family is up and at 'em!

They are back!

The K family is back in Wuxi.

Tony and a Pail.

GKC, I believe, said that to be a child is to see things anew. I was amazed that Tony found cleaning his grandparents' yard of pine cones and other tree droppings to be so interesting. I also couldn't believe that the mosquitoes didn't bother him.

They should as heck bothered me.

Wuxi Tony Canadian Odyssey #31

Wuxi Tony Canadian Odyssey #30

Tony wears sunglasses.

Tony likes Smarties

Tony likes Smarties, a candy like M&M's, only they taste better.  Smarties, on the 2010 Wuxi Tony Canadian Odyssey, have proven themselves to be an effective way to stop his tantrums, so a pacifier they have become.  

Smarties, as far as Tony's father knows, are only available in Canada.

Brandon, Manitoba

Now, the Kaulins Family:  Tony, Jenny, and Andis are in Brandon, a city of 40,000 or so in in Western Manitoba.  Tony's grandparents have now seen their grandson in person.
Andis has access to a computer so he will be able to post lots of video and photos.

The Kaulins Family is in Winnipeg

All that can be said is that it is wet, hot, and mosquito season has just begun.  I timed my arrival in the peg right.... not!

The tantrum of all tantrums

Tony had a ten minute tantrum in the Gas town area of Vancouver.

He wanted a toy that he couldn't have. His father took it away. And that is when it started. He first lay on the ground in the store. His father then took him out to the street but Tony continued to kick and wail. His screaming caught the attention of passers-by and other shop-keepers.

Tony's fury subsided when his mom came out with another toy for him.

An aboriginal street-artist observing the tantrum said "that kid could use a smoke!".

Daddy Boy!

Tony's father calls Tony "Tony Boy". One instance, Tony called his father "Daddy Boy".

Rubbing T's stomach

Nothing can be finer than lying beside Tony, rubbing his stomach for him, as he falls asleep.

Does Tony look a girl?

With his new haircut, I am afraid he does.  Others have made the same observation that I did when first seeing him with his new and current hairstyle.

Watch Tony watch some dredging.  It is not often that you can watch this from directly above the boat.
