After a long day going to the zoo, the silk factory, the jade factory and having lunch in between, the children finally got to let out some energy by playing in the pack-n-play. All 3 had a blast!
At the jade factory we purchased a dog pendant for Ellie because she was born in the year of the dog according to the Chinese calendar.
Having lunch at a great authentic Chinese restaurant. The children loved the noodles. Fulton and Lilly practiced using chopsticks and did pretty good! Ellie is learning to sign for "more" and tries to say the word too which is really good since her palate is still unrepaired.
Ellie fast asleep and sweating profusley during our long day of travel in an unairconditioned van.
At the zoo: Fulton was asked by this boy's mother to have his picture made w/ her son. The little boy kept running back to his mom so David finally took the picture of the boy , his mom, and Fulton.
Fulton enjoyed climbing on the rocks and Lilly tried to keep up w/ him most of the time.
It was a nice morning at the zoo and the weather was very pleasant during our morning there.
Ellie had a rough day as she only wanted mom to carry her and cried loudly if David held her. We made it through and by the end of the day she was doing better. David gave her and Lilly a bath tonight and dressed Ellie so hopefully she will quickly attach to him more.
Lilly and Fulton had fun on this ride at the zoo. They had to catch balls in a net and dump them in a basket.
Overall it was a good day. Tomorrow we are heading to the biggest tourist attraction in the area- Stone Forest.
Sharon, the t-shirts fit great and many Chinese commented on Fulton's shirt.
We miss everybody at home and thank you for your prayers!
