Tienamen Square, winter hats, lost glasses and rickshaws...

Wednesday, October 28, 2009

On our first day in Beijing, we were off and running (gotta beat that jet lag!). We weren't quite prepared (although we were warned) for the cold weather in Beijing. We bought Lily and Adam (who did not have hoods on their sweatshirts) winter hats. Our guide was horrified that we spent $10 on these hats. We were just happy that our kids had warm heads!

We had a great time at Tienamen Square. The history and architecture were fascinating.

Look at these two cuties! Lily was so excited. She could hardly believe that we were finally in her China!

Notice how in this picture, I am now wearing David's jacket! Awww...what a guy!

Adam had lost his glasses on the airplane, so he had a bit of a headache. He and I headed back to the hotel, and the rest of the crew went for a rickshaw ride. They had a great time!
In the evening, David, the kids and I made our way out to LangFang to visit PHF (Shepherd's Field). Oma and Opa stayed in Beijing to do some touring.
Up next (tomorrow): some cute pictures of a bunch of adorable kiddos. If I could have taken a few of them home in my suitcase, I definitely would have done that!
