What are we up to now?

We start off our day like this. It is so precious to play with our little cutie in the morning!Then we head out into the streets and see this.
More playtime in the room. Love this girl!

And tonight, a special treat. Our new friends that we met at the airport on the way here invited us to dinner. It was so nice to get to talk to them, see their sweet little ones, and get out of the room.
Here are The Smith's with their adorable little guy. He ate noodles like no other!

Here are The Denny's from Ohio. They have a Lily too! So sweet!
And they offered to take a shot of the three of us.
Tomorrow morning we pack our bags..again. We fly out of Nanjing to Guangzhou. This place is supposedly wonderful..and tropical. They don't have 4 seasons. So, we are ready for a change of pace. We fly out at 4:10 p.m. for us..a.m. for you. We will be meeting up with the other families that we met in Beijing. Looking forward to seeing them with their newest additions.
Blessings to you!
Doug, Julie, and Lily
Bren, Bry, and LJ... hang in there guys. We'll be watching movies and snuggling before we know it. Cannot wait!!!
Love you bunches!!!!

Love, love the picture of the 3 of you together, yeaaahhhh. We ran into Bren last night at school on the playground, I tossed football with him and then he and Timmy tossed for a long time, he seems to be doing great, Bryson was in practice. I know you get to skype with them which is soooo awesome, that was the hardest part for us not being able to communicate. Your little Lily is too adorable for words, hugs & kisses from all of us. Can't wait to see you all!!!!

It will be so fun for you! Will you be at the White Swan? Go to "Lucy's" for laundry. Tell them a "friend" recommended them and you'll get a big discount! Tons of stuff to buy here! They love to cater to Americans and they're very kind! Lucy will give you a stroller to use for the time you're there. Just ask her! Post pics of the red couch! So excited for you! This will be a really fun part of the trip with your little flower! Love you!
