A morning out at Neilson Hays Library

User Rating: 5 (2 votes)

Logan and I took refuge from the heat last week by spending a morning at the Neilson Hays Library in Silom. They have a well-stocked children’s corner adorned with the best children’s lit, comfy bean bag chairs, and sweet, sweet air conditioning. If you’re a non-member, you can relax and read all the books your heart desires for a 50 baht donation. We hit up the cafe next door for an art walk-through and sweet treat before heading home. Fun and calming activity on a busy and hot Bangkok morning.

Our family got its start in Washington, D.C. where two young diplomats-in-training met, dated, and subsequently were sent to opposite ends of the earth (Thailand and Mozambique) by the U.S. Foreign Service.  After four years and six countries apart, a proposal in Venezuela, a wedding in Thailand, and a honeymoon in Laos, the Braunohlers resided as one in Sydney, Australia in 2006-7.

After a two-year stint in Khartoum, Sudan and a year-long recovery in Washington, D.C., the third Braunohler, Logan, arrived on the scene in July 2010.  Just three and a half months into his young life, our family accepted an assignment in Bangkok, Thailand, where we now reside, work, and play.  On May 10th, 2012, we welcomed sweet Katelyn Elise into our family.

Our time in Bangkok has shown us that raising young children in this buzzing, sometimes glitzy and glamorous, sometimes seedy metropolis is a phenomenal joy. I hope to inform and inspire others about the joys of raising a toddler, both in general, and in a place like Thailand, where children are continuously adored and amazed by the world around them.
