Yesterday, July 14, we had a free day up until 5 pm. We spent most of the morning walking around the island and doing some more shopping. We ate lunch at an Italian Resturant. They have a great salad. We had dinner there Monday night. It was like being home going to an Italian Resturant. The food is amazing.
We had our red couch photos at 5 pm. LeahJean decides to have a major melt down around 4:00. The first one that she has had. It lasted for about 30 minutes and we don't really know what caused it. In the process of the melt down she scratch her lip and it would not stop bleeding. It bled for most of the night. We could not get her to smile in any of the pictures as you will see.
After the red couch we went on the Pearl River Cruise. It was great. Very relaxing. They served a buffet Chinese Dinner. The food was not the best, but the scenes were great. We really enjoyed it.
Today, July 15, was our Consulate Appointment. We just had to wait in our rooms from 10:30 am until our rep called to let us know that all our paperwork was ok and they would issue LeahJeans visa so she could enter the US. We did lunch walked around the island some more, pick up some stuff that we had ordered and headed back to the room for a bit and then meet up with some families at the pool. LeahJean did alittle better today in the pool. Had Lucy's for dinner. Talked to the boys and will be headed to bed shortly.
Tomorrow morning, some of the families will be going to the Guangzhou zoo. We have chose not to go. We did the zoo in Zhengzhou and LeahJean was not to trilled and it is to hot. We leave the hotel at 2:45 and go to the consulate and take the Oath and receive LeahJeans Visa. Then Friday morning we leave Guangzhou and head to Hong Kong, were we will spend the night and fly out of Hong Kong Saturday morning. We will fly to Tokyo, then from there to Atlanta. We will arrive in Atlanta around 3 PM Saturday. We are so ready to be home.
We are doing good. LeahJean is doing great. She had the melt down yesterday, then alittle one today. She doesn't like to be told no. She can definently pout when she doesn't get her way.
Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers and please continue to keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we finish up in China and begin our travel back home.
3 more days and we will be home.
