Catchy title, eh? I'm kinda focused on the fact that 24 hours from now we are flying out of here! And 26 hours after that we land in Wichita!!!! But I digress.
Yesterday we went to the Consulate for our appointment and oath (it's at the same time now). Today we will get the call that the girls' Visas have been issued!Last night was the Pearl River Cruise. Some cool new buildings were constructed for the games, and it makes for beautiful sights. However, the food is worse than before :( Oh yes, it can be so.
Lily, Rebecca and Aron!
Lily has matched us with 3 of our kiddos!
Rebecca ~ lifelong friend!
We had delicious cuisine at the Malaysian restaurant for lunch! For those of ya'll coming this way, we are staying in the Garden Hotel; this is the Malaysian restaurant across the street, above McDonald's, down the hall from Pizza Hut. How's that for country directions? And Bellagio's is around the corner from Starbucks and completely delicious!
Sheri's fruit salad!
New TV tower along the cruise
Kenzie. She's with me.
Sheri. She's with me too! Don't know what I'd do without her!
And finally... something to make you laugh. I told ya' she's ornery!
Today we visit a new place on the sightseeing agenda. Will have pix, I'm sure :) Should be interesting though - this morning I apparently dropped my left contact before it made it into my eye, and by the time I realized it, it was stuck to the floor. I tore a chunk out of it lifting it from the floor. It's my last spare. Kasidi hates my glasses, so I guess I'll just wink a lot today...and tomorrow.
This afternoon Aron picks up the Visas, and then we are free to fly out tomorrow morning!
