Westside Park

Isabel asked if we would like to continue our time together

With a walk through Westside Park.

I have to say this is one of my favorite parts of being in China~

Being in the places where people are just living life.

It was around 11:00am and we walked by a school that was letting out for lunch.

The kids are picked up and

have three hours to eat and nap before coming back.

I LOVED watching all the people scatter with their families.

There were so many beautiful gardens, buildings, trees, interesting people, and

An amusement park… full of children enjoying their mid day break.

Scott and EK rode the merry-go-round

while SJ and I watched.

We had many stares, lots of smiles from the Chinese people,

And one young couple asked to have their picture made with us.

Such a fun time together!!!


  1. Our Day in the Park was one of our favorite days in China too! I love that the people are so curious & kind!

  2. I'm glad that SJ is so "at home" in your arms. She still looks so sad but we all know that grieving is good. I love her heart shape necklace. Was it a gift from the orphanage? I see she is attached to a pink towel... did she bring it with her? I'm praying that each day is a little easier.
