Heidi and I promised each other that we would not be trapped in our hotel room all day, every day when we had a free day in China.

We wanted to make the most of our time in this wonderful place.

Take in the sights, the sounds, the smells.... Okay, maybe not so much of the smells!

Today we had to wait in our hotel room from 1:00-3:30 pm. Our guide would be calling between those times with the result of the TB test for Miss Emma Claire.

Well Miss Becky, our guide, called at exactly 3:30 with the good news.

Emma Claire passed and we were now clear for our Consulate Appiintment, which will take place in the morning.

As soon as I hung up the phone, we were off!

Our biggest adventure of the day was going to a Chinese restaurant for dinner.

No English spoken at all. :)

But, y'all....we did it!

All by ourselves!

And, it was all so good!

After dinner, we ran by McDonalds and had McFlurries for dessert.

We felt we deserved the treat!

Probably going to hit the sack early tonight. We meet our guide at 7:30 in the morning and head to the US Consulate to take our oath that we will care for sweet Emma Claire.  Well, duh! That's a no-brainer!

I will leave you with one more silly picture.

Emma Claire always takes her shoes off as soon as we get back in the hotel room.

But, today we looked over and she had this big, cheesy grin on her face.

She thought that she was so funny!

And, I have to agree!

Hi - your new daughter is adorable! Our son Andrew was at House of Grace with Sam David so I follow along your blog to see how he's doing. We adopted a new daughter in May and our guide was also Becky. I wonder in our small world if she would be the same person. Congratulations and happy travels home! Sarah
