It's a Marvelous Night for a Moondance

Last night Micheal took us to an awesome restaurant down the block from the hotel. He did all the ordering for us. It was really good... and holy cow was it cheap... we ate for a long time and all were stuffed to the gills, for a whopping $8 per person! INCLUDING TIP! Too funny... anyway, it seems Rachel is the belle of the ball wherever we go, and this was no exception... here are some of her newest fans...

This morning & afternoon, we were on our own... we go to do whatever we wanted... so naturally, we went SHOPPING... we actually didn't buy very much... we are saving it up for when we get to Guangzhou.. but we sure attracted a lot of attention... that's truly amazing... we are like a walking freak show apparently. Everyone stops to look at all the babies, and they have no fear! One lady walked right up and took Rachel right out of her stroller before I had a chance to stop her! Freaked the hell out of me... but I got her back right away and opted to carry her for while after that! Here are some shopping pics (not many taken because forgot to charge up the camera! DUH)

Tonight was the Mid Autumn Moon Festival. The tradition here is for everyone to celebrate the mid autumn moon by spending time with family and then you are supposed to eat moon cakes and make a wish.
Well, we went to a mid autum festival, but some of the families decided they wanted to go back to the hotel early, so we didn't get to see a lot of the festivities but what we saw we enjoyed. I was hoping to see the entertainment but someone said they got a picture of one of the performers as she was entering the park, so when she sends it to me I will post it here... in the meantime, here are some of the pics we took. There were lots more but these are the highlights!

Thank you thank you thank you for the new pics! You look like you are having so much fun! Rachel is adorable with her little headband.
Can't wait to see more. Kisses to everyone.

P.S. Buy Tommy some more shirts the next time you go shopping. He had that one on in the last batch of pictures! :)

Our Story

We are the proud parents of a beautiful little girl. I have not stopped smiling since the moment they placed her in my arms. We adopted her Sept 2008 and it's been nothing but wonderful! She is the best reason to open my eyes every day! Currently living in SW Florida. I've also become a MAJOR Twilight junkie, so now I'm told I'm a TWI-MOM & I LOVE it!
