Sebastian loves the water and given the opportunity would spend the entire day playing in his new wet wonderland. However, to keep him from frying himself, we have to drag him out of the pool from about 11:30 AM to 2:30 PM!
Sebastian studies the water and Maureen, as he prepares to jump (for the 100th time) into the pool. Tess encourages as she stands behind Sebastian. Sebastian is now learning to dive. His diving angle is a wee bit shallow, so he has done a number of belly flops that he insists do not hurt. "Let's doo dat one more time!" he says.
View left to right, top to bottom, to see twelve action shots of Sebastian as he jumps into the water to MoZiLLa!
Crazy ride... thrill of a lifetime...
Sebastian enjoys a Thai M&M after a ride in a tuk tuk.
Charles doesn't look this relaxed all the time... but we're working on it!

Clothes and all, Remarkable Mo dipped herself in the pool.

It's a long way down!

Nothing like a lazy morning next to the pool!
Sebastian takes time out of the pool to rest in the shade and play with some toys.

Sebastian drags a boat full of toys across the pool deck to the water's edge.
After dragging the toy laden boat across the pool deck, Sebastian looks for his next fixation. Ah but, Seb, these are not YOUR toys... they are the RESORT's toys... don't forget to share. "Aw-wite..." he'd say, (most of the time, anyway!)
Hamming it up with some quality British Invasion 80's music... who said that air bands are dead?
If only the other kids knew what Seb was doing up late with the adults!
No holiday with Charles would be complete without building a sailboat. Contest rules: sail straight across the pool. Judges awarded top marks and Seb's Dad walked away with the Kamala Beach Cup!
We had several hours to wait before boarding our flight to Hong Kong in the Bangkok airport. Fortunately a very kind airport attendant permitted Sebastian to spend almost two hours playing on these airport golf carts. That was a "hole in 1" as it burned off what little energy he had remaining.
On the plane from Bangkok to Hong Kong, Sebastian was halfway through a piece of chicken when he swallowed and said, "Daaaddeee..." Just a few seconds later, after travelling Mach 5 for the entire week with three adults taking turns as his wingman, Seb collapsed into his seat and pretty much spent the next 36 hours sleeping.
