Full Day

We had a really full, fun day today. We started at the Tiananmen square, the forbidden city, and the Great Wall. We also visited a cloisonne factory and had lunch at a restaurant there. China is really amazing and it is difficult to really describe it. It is very different but not as foreign as I thought in some parts. But we are in Beijing so it is a huge city with 15 million people.

Now I understand what everyone said about the driving in China! Wow. That is really all I can say. Our bus driver made it through spots I didn't think a small car would fit through. It was crazy, but we made it. Dad and I took so many pictures that both of our cameras died. We did buy a few things today at the cloisonne factory and a cool surprise for Jack at the Great Wall. I am still looking for the perfect purse for you Liv! Our guide, Grace, said it is possible that we may get Makenna tomorrow when we get to her province (Jiangxi)! That would be so wonderful, I can't wait to see her little face! I hope she does well with the transition. I am so excited and it breaks my heart that she has to be so sad for a liitle while.

Enjoy the pictures and I will see you in Nanchang!

Hi Aunt Dana. I hope you are having a good time in China. I hope Makenna is all that you hoped for and dreamed of and I can't wait to meet her. I have waited so long to see her.

Love, cousin Kendall

Is your guide Grace from GWCA?? If so, tell her that Nina, David, Ariel and Kavanna say "hi". She is the best guide, ever, and you're lucky to have her.

And most of all, congratulations on your beautiful daughter!!!

I am so happy to see other people taking "potty" shots. I don't feel quite so weird now!
