More Pictures, Less Words

Mostly pictures tonight. It's been a long, fun day and I am tired.

Our last few days have been filled with many "traditional" Chinese adoption moments.

At the White Swan, the following photos would have been called the "red couch" pictures. This hotel has no red couch, but the crying kids all dressed up look the same on the brown sofa as they would have on the red.

(our group minus the three ZZ dads who were all in their rooms sick)

(the kids)

(us minus Kory who is feeling much better and so far, 
no one else shows any signs of sickness, thanks so much for praying!!)

Wednesday we headed to the pearl market. The boys have gotten many requests for pictures on this trip. And while they are mostly good sports about it, I don't think they will miss their celebrity status when they get home. 

This morning we finally had our Consulate Appointment. The LAST thing on our adoption checklist. Tomorrow Zak's Visa comes and we start our journey home. 

And right after we got back from our CA, we headed out to the GZ Safari Park with our travel companions and friends. For all you adoptive families heading to China. We HIGHLY recommend it. The boys loved it. We loved it. That is all I am going to say. The pictures can do the rest of the talking for me.

My last goodnight from GZ.

Yeah!!! I'm glad you experienced the Safari park!! Our tour guide kept on telling us, "City Zoo...1 panda, Safari Park...10 pandas!" So we did the Safari park and will go back the next time we visit!(and not just because of the pandas) SO GLAD that Kory is feeling better. PTL!
