She loved the water fountains in the park
Getting ready for dinner. Hoot is such a proud big brother.
She LOVES her lipstick. but only daddy can apply it... :(
Libbie's primary concern is food... She will eat everything in sight which makes me think she was deprived. We've been told it happens, but to see it in person is indescribable. She eats more than we could ever imagine. She will lick her fingers to dab up the cracker crumbs in her stroller. if she drops something she searches until she finds it. There doesn't seem to be any satisfying her appetite. It makes me hurt. We give her whatever she wants and allow her to hang on to whatever she can in her little hands. As long as she has something in her grasp, she is content. Today she was much more relaxed. She slept good and even spit out a few things she didn't care for. The girl can also make a HUGE mess. She is a tornado in our room. I pick it all up and she tears through and drags is ALL out again. It's like a game. She wins.
Our guide took us for our traditional chinese meal today... I knew I was in trouble when I saw rabbit and turtle on the sign outdoors... I REALLY knew I was in trouble when I saw the bunny cages and the SNAKE cages when entered the door. Hoot saw the bunnies and said NO!! don't kill the bunnies, we love bunnies. Then our guide said her favorite dish was the steamed pigeon... i'm gonna die, I thought to myself. She asked that we not ask what we were eating but just try... I made it through lunch. I didn't eat any meat. We played it safe and stuck to the noodles and fried rice. None of us are adventurous diners so this was a huge stretch. Libbie on the other hand ate everything in sight.
We are all tired and ready to come home. We're getting on each others nerves and this hotel room seems to be closing in on us. We've explored as much as we can explore and now we miss home... family friends, normalcy.
