Monday was the trip to the Guangzhou Zoo, it was neat to see the zoo. Lotus fell asleep almost right after we got there. She got to see the brown bear and that was it. We checked out the Panda, elephants, bears, tigers, oh my, lol. Funny thing is they have dogs in the zoo, like we have for pets. All and all it was fun (but very hot). Lotus woke up right as we were leaving. Next year, we will go to the Philadelphia Zoo, we will make sure we go after nap time. After the zoo, we came back and had lunch at Lucy's. Lotus had a meltdown once mommy got her food, she does not like it when mommy eats. We then came back and took a nap. Jocelyn stopped by and dropped off a birth certificate and abandonment papers and others for us. Later, we went to dinner at the White Swan Deli with Adreanna and family. It was not bad, I got a noodle bowl which was tasty(Lotus had meltdown again when mommy got food). Kevin got a sandwhich and we shared cheese bread (very good). We then went to Susan's Place to pick up some things that we were waiting to be engraved. When we came back Lotus played on the bed and opened up even more, she likes to play on my tummy now and we do SO BIG. She is laughing and giggling. Today we had breakfast downstairs, came back up to room and Lotus had play time again, it is so much fun. Mommy went to do visa paperwork while Lotus napped. Once I was down Lotus was awake. We then all went out to take a walk, get some starbucks and do some more shopping (what else, lol). Came back to room and gave Lotus a very late bottle, she was not happy. After her bottle and nap we went to dinner with Yvonne and Scott and their daughter. They are from Wyoming. We ate dinner at the Cow and Bridge (very good food). Then Kev and Lotus and I took a walk. Then came back for more play time. Lotus really blossomed some more. Got some great photos. She is now sleeping and so is Kevin. My turn next once I am down writing to everyone. Tomorrow we wait for our visa appointment and then do the famous red couch photo, then a cruise on the pearl river (after dinner). Looking forward to an outing. Well getting tired, will upload some photos and then go to bed.
Deb, Kevin, and Lotus
