Busy Day!







We left our hotel at 8:30 am with 18 other families for a day of sight-seeing, First we went to Tinanamen Square, A very beautiful place, but it was so hot and humid out, I felt sick. The crowds were so packed-in everyone kept loosing our tour guild. I was so afraid we would loose Jeron, he had to hold our hand all day. That didn't make for a happy 7 year old. Nor did the fact that he is like a little movie star here, people would literally walk up to him and stare and ask if they could take his picture, he started crying at one point, if you know Jeron he has a personal space bubble, and please don't pop it!. Our guild told him "the Chinese just love you boy, you so handsome, they like you white hair and you white skin" It makes me laugh just typing it. As the day went on he got better and better with it. One Mother actually took his hand and had him hold her daughters hand, so cute.We were treated to a awesome Chinese lunch, we all had duck and lots of stir fried veggies. The air conditioned restaurant felt so nice. And yes, Kim and I both used that hole, I mean potty. After lunch our group left for The Great Wall, it is just as beautiful as the pictures Iv'e seen. Kim and I climbed the first phase and that was it for us, Jeron and Ames kept on going and going, they were wringing wet once they came back down, Jeron was so excited. That has been by far his favorite. About an hour into the tour it started poring rain, thunder and lightning. We all headed back for the bus, the storm was so intense it took over 2 hours to get back to the hotel.We have to be out of our room by 5:00 am tomorrow the bell boy will be knocking at 4:10am for our luggage, we have a 8:00 am flight to Jiangsu Province. ONE more day! We have been told we will get Jadyn in the morning on Monday.

Lovely pictures and I laughed when I saw the squatty potty. :)

Jeron must feel like a super star over there. Hope things calm down a little for him. I am sure that must feel overwhelming. Sounds like you guys are having so much fun and not too much longer ntil you receive Jadyn. :)
