Day 13: Playing Outside!

Momma is refreshed and we have a relaxing day today!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We are hanging out playing at the hotel outdoor playground and swimming the whole afternoon in the awesome pool!!!!!!!! The weather is beautiful outside. A hot 87 degrees and perfect for a pool party in the afternoon!

Fun playday!!!!!!! So schedule and no where to go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Paperwork is done...just wait for officals to sign and complete. Our Consulate Appointment is on Thursday at 10:00 am and then we pick up our visa on Friday and leave for Hong Kong!!!!!

In the meantime, we have 2 days to rest up and relax!!!! Here's Nana with the kids!

Having a great time in China!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We miss everyone and look forward to going HOME!! There really is NO PLACE LIKE HOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here's Ms. Ahnya playing and having a ball!!! Hi, Daddy! I miss you!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gabriella misses her friends at school!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! She wants to tell everyone that she's eating very different things and trying everything. Gabriella is loving the experience and taking everything in!!!!! She's ate octopus, caviar, mussels, peking duck, escargo (spelling?), calamari, steamed buns, sushi, salmon pate, and other foods that I don't even know how to spell or describe!!!

Jocelyn also misses her kindergarten classroom 104!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HI to all her friends and Ms. Dudgeon, too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Jocelyn loves shopping in the chinese shops for fans, dresses, candies, and purses, too! Jocelyn is just happy to be with momma and eager to see her daddy when she gets home!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It is wonderful to see all the smiling faces, fun activities and sights from China you are experiencing. I can tell everyone is feeling so much better by the happy smiles. The hotel play park looks fantastic.
Wow, Gabby is really the food experimenter!! Way to go, girl. I'm sure glad you are having fun while you wait for the final paperwork. I hope the next few days pass quickly for all of you.
Thanks for all the great photos and updates. It's great to read about your adventures.
Hugs, Shellie
