Last Day in Guangzhou!!

Hi Everyone!

Today is our last day here in Guangzhou, it has been such a busy day. We woke up early so that we could get some final power shopping in! We almost finished the list mom gave us and we didn't even have to buy more luggage! Dad was happy about that! Then we came back to the hotel so that we could get in some final pool time before we leave! Our little water bug loves to splash in the water, but she doesn't like to get in because it is too cold. 
After the pool, Quinn laid down for her afternoon nap while Katie and Kara went out to see if they could get a little more shopping done. After the nap, we headed to the US consulate. At the consulate we were able to meet a few other western family who were adopting to which was really nice!
We had an interesting car ride home where we were able to see more of the city of Guangzhou. It is a very busy city with very cramped living quarters! We got back to the hotel and went to the red couch to have our pictures taken. Quinn was not to happy about that! We order pizza for dinner and then we went to finish up some more shopping!
Tomorrow we are heading on the train to Hong Kong and then onto Tokyo! We are almost home!

Thanks for your thoughts and prayers!
