Just a quick update.
I'm sure you guys are as bored with this trip as we are but we are almost to the end.
Only one more appointment for us and that is the big one with the US consulate.
They have had some major issues there in the last month with computer problems and delays. So if we could ask you to pray with us just a little longer.
We have enjoyed our trip here but certainly don't want to be delayed.
So, US consulate Thursday, Receive Lukes Visa Friday (we pray) and fly home Saturday...
We can hardly wait.
There is a lot of downtime between appointments this week. So while waiting, there is a tradition among adoptive families to go to the pearl market here in Guangzhou.
We didn't make that trip when we were here to get Hannah back in 2011 and regretted it ever since.
Today we rectified that and I have to say enjoyed it. I Think Holly might have been surprised that I was actually willing to spend money there.
But hey, what's life without a little adventure:)
|You see bags and bags of pearls in the background. |
Not the prettiest way to display them but whatever it takes to get a deal I always say :)
|It did concern me a little at how excited the lady was that we bought the pearls from. |
She even wanted to have her picture taken with us.
Probably having a good laugh with her friends this evening.
Oh well, all my girls are happy so what do I care.
|Just some big metal sculptures out in the square. |
Had to get Elizabeths picture with the big rooster.
|These 2 pictures are pretty much for Uncle Derek. Thought he would enjoy the minions in Mcdonalds|
and seeing the Mcdonalds delivery guy again.
It is so close to our hotel that we won't be using him this time.
|Andrew, Elizabeth, and I went out exploring the streets during nap time today. Probably can't see very well but we were deep in the streets of the city.|
|Luke, sitting at the famous Lucys restaurant.|
|Here you can finally see a little of his cleft issue. |
His lip hides it most of the time.
|And this guy was painting Lukes name in Chinese for us (We think:)|
We hear there is major flooding at home. As I recall there was also flooding in 2011 When we got Hannah and when we were in Kazakhstan on 2005 Hurricane Katrina hit.
I plan on giving you guys a break in the major weather events and calling our family complete.....
