A Garden Tour

The entrance to the gardens.
Our Garden Hotel group.
The gardens!
If we are out of our room,
SJ wants to be in my arms...
no stroller and no walking. :)
OK by me!
My precious baby!!!
Mark and Rebecca made it to The Garden last night
with sweet Claire!
It is so great to finally be in China with them!!!
SJ is year of pig so we made a pic at her zodiac rock.
I had them hold hands for a pencil drawing
Amelia wants to do for her art class.
A rare photo of our family together.
Me and the littles. :)
There was a fountain at the end of the tour
and this is what we saw...
naked kids everywhere. :)


  1. Looks like a beautiful place to visit and a nice day to share with the other couples.

  2. Wow! The gardens are beautiful! And so is your the pic of you all together!

  3. I LOVE THIS POST!!! It was great to see all of you together. I loved seeing John there too. I am sure he has had a hard time being alone. Awesome!!!

    I also loved the naked babies in the water. That made me laugh because they will get on anyone that doesn't cover their kids with many, MANY layers but then let them run naked in public. Too funny!!! ;0)

  4. That IS funny about the clothing/nakedness! What a beautiful place...I am so glad you have that hip carrier!

  5. So glad you are in GZ, and on the home stretch!!!! It sounds like things are going really well... Soon you will be home, and she will be fitting right in with the rest of your beautiful family!!!! Enjoy these last few days!


  6. "Naked" is a very popular word at our house right now, so it was especially timely to see those little tushies in the fountain.

  7. Oh, I am so sorry I am missing all of this! I'm so sad I didn't get to meet everyone. I think your girls are absolutely precious. It seems like SJ is adjusting well. How do you get those bows in her hair? Quinn wants nothing to do with them and I sent a HUGE bag with John! :( We'll have to work on that....

    Enjoy the rest of your trip. I've enjoyed following along, though it's just not the same.


  8. Such a pretty place! Loved all of your pics of the girls and especially all the naked kids running around in the sprinklers. Ha ha!

  9. Our day at the park was one of our very favorites - so many photo ops! Such cute pics of all of you!
