Guangzhou and Shamian Island, Good Times!

Daddy and his little girl with the Pearl River lights in the background. We had a good night to view the laser light and boat show this evening.
Lilymei acting goofy in the hotel room. She is really starting to open up more. The boys are great at making her laugh. Isn't she so cute!!

A nice family shot in one of the parks on Shamian Island, note the 5 funny looking children and the one adorable looking baby!
Here is Drew and a new found friend that had to "interview" him for her English class. Drew had to formally meet her and write his dream for the Beijing Olympic Games. We all had fun with this on Saturday of course we all received a gift from our friends.

Today we had to have Lilymei's picture taken for her Visa. We then introduced her to the world of swimming. Let's just say she is not a huge fan yet! The boys had a great time in the beautiful pool here at the White Swan. We ate dinner at Lucy's, again. Lucy's restaurant caters to western families and the food is very good. It was nice to have some old fashioned grilled cheese and apple pie ala mode. We have had a fun filled time here on the island. Lilymei is doing quite well and starting to open up more and more each day. We are going to the doctor in the morning for the obligatory medical exam. We will then be off for a fun filled day touring and completing the day with a dinner boat cruise of the Pearl River. We are finding Lilymei to be such a beautiful little baby in everything she does. She is currently "talking" in her sleep and it is so cute. We miss everyone and can't wait to get home.

Here are the boys playing Chinese hacky sack in the park, quite a show for the Chinese!
