I know- I'm several days behind!
I had to take a break for a few reasons-
1. Instead of blogging- I packed. It was SO time to come home.
2. It takes forever to upload pictures with the internet over there. Trent found a way to get through so Angela wouldn't have to do all the work. This isn't always quick and easy.
3. It took 2 days to get home.
4. I just couldn't stand to get on here. When we landed in San Francisco we went straight to the food court. (Airplane food is bad and we just had a 12 hour flight!) Trey had carried the camera from security to where we ate and set it down with his backpack. When we got up to leave it was on the other side of Trey's chair and no one noticed it. I didn't notice until we were boarding 4 hours later! To say I was upset is an understatement. I hadn't uploaded 4 days worth of pictures!!
Anyway, after I calmed down, I prayed for a miracle and received it last night. Someone turned it in to the lost and found at the airport and they are FedEx'ing it to me today. YEA!!!

So, here we go~

Day 9
It wasn't a real exciting day.
We went to Chen's Ancestral Hall, now known as the Guangdong Folk Arts Museum, this morning. It was built in 1888-1894. Most of it was outside. Of course it was beautiful- but, we've seen enough Chinese culture. We are ready to come home.

I am making XiaoHua walk more, and she's getting better. I was so tired carrying her around the museum I gave her to Trent. She did not like it one bit! It seems she is going backwards with him. We have both noticed it.
Rosa went to the consulate today to apply for her Visa. Since we had two guides we didn't need to stay in the room. Everything went well and she will pick them up tomorrow .
The museum didn't take long. We went back to the hotel, had lunch and then left for Shamian Island for shopping.
At one point I had Trent take her from me- this time she didn't cry. But she didn't let him hold her long.

Two families left today. Their children were under 2 years and didn't have to stay for the TB test.
One of the them have a boy thatis Trey's age and they got to hang out together quite a bit!
They also named their very cute little girl Wesleigh. I had to get a picture with her to show my Wesley.
I have never heard that name for a girl- the more I think about it, the more I love it!

While sitting in the lobby of the hotel, waiting for Trent to exchange money, I got my hair done!

In the taxi on the way back after shopping on Shamian Island.

At Lucy's Restuarant.

This lady played with the kids so we could shop. Makes for great sales! The toy she was playing with is a top that plays music. XiaoHua danced with the music- and really has some moves!!
