On Friday we visited a famous cave in Guilin. Because Guilin is located in a mountainous area, it has many caves, here are some pics:
We also visited a scenic area called Elephant Hill, can you see why?
Lastly, is there nothing sweeter than a sleeping baby? Forgive the oaf in the background.
Later that evening Aaron and I woke up at the exact same time with symptoms of food poisoning. Although I am tempted to share details, I will just tell you, it was ugly. Aaron and I were the only ones to eat a Big Mac at McDonalds that evening, that's all we can figure out (no Sam, it wasn't bean turd). Who would have thought our "safe" meal at an American restaurant would get us. Thanks to those of you that prayed, as we were able to make our train to Guangzhou. We were very weak, but the rest of the fam stepped up big time. Jack, Grace, and Casey are nursing tender stomachs, so we would appreciate prayers that we can stay healthy. We will be here until we leave on Saturday. We have an appt. at the US Consulate this week, as well as a required medical exam for Brooklyn. After the Consulate Appt. we wait to receive Brooklyn's travel visa on Friday.
Unfortunately it is more humid here in Guangzhou than it was in Guilin. Overall Brooklyn is doing great. We see more and more smiles and giggles. We also see more of her exerting her will (of course). Brooklyn is a snuggler, which we love. Also, she isn't too fond of hotel rooms and let's us know about it. We are anxious to get her home to "normal". Brooklyn's trusts us more daily, which is an answer to so many prayers.
