Full Days

Our day started with another adventure. We tried to go to an antique shop but ended up going to a antique museum.  Seems no one really knew what we were trying to get across, well maybe a tad. They did get the  antique part. We decided we would just head back to the hotel. Taylor ended up going shopping with another family and she hit the jackpot!

At 2:30 we headed to the island to have all the TB tests read for all the kids who had to have the test. PTL Evan did not need to have an x-ray! Thank you for your prayers. Two little boys from one family did need to have chest x-rays but they came back normal. So all is well with all of the children in our group.

We ended up staying on the island longer so we could relax, shop and eat. We headed to Jordon's but had such a hard time finding him due to all the construction. The whole island is under construction and is a mess. Let me tell you though, what is finished is beautiful! It should all be finished in October. We did not see all of the little statues that they had here two ago. There are a few.

We finished up our night with dinner at Lucy's. We ate outside on the patio and just relaxed. It was so nice to just sit and enjoy the weather. If your coming in the spring or summer I'd bring some bug spray. We received a couple of mosquito bites. We head to grab a taxi when I realized we did not have a photo of Evan on the red couch. I snapped a couple and hope Carla can do some magic. ;)

Tomorrow our paperwork will be review by the consulate and we will visit a museum. Later in the evening we will be doing a dinner cruise which we are really looking forward to. Hopefully I'll have some nice pictures to share. Hope all is well with all of you!

*couldn't really do anything to the red couch photo from the jpg, I'm going to wait and see if Cheri has the raw format of it. It's not bad at all IMO, but when I talk with her I will know what she wants done.*


  1. PRAISE GOD for negative TB results!!! Wow, I knwo that is a relief! So happy the chest x-rays came back clear for the other children as well. Whew! Can't believe your time in China is coming to a close, enjoy every moment you have left!

  2. carla, we want to thank you for the pictures you have sent for evan's blog. it has meant so much for us to see them . evan's meme and papa

  3. Yeah for no x-rays!!! I see where Jordon painted your names. He did the same thing for us. When I got back, I couldn't find frames the right size to frame ours, so you might pick up frames for them while you are in China. Seeing your pictures is so making me want to go back. I am glad everything is going well for you guys!

  4. So glad to hear that Evan's TB test was fine. We had to do the additional chest xray with Samantha back in September, just enough to completely stress me out.

    I love Jordon, isn't he awesome? I am loving the pics and hope you guys are well.
