A Day of Bargaining

Today we headed out for some shopping...and with shopping there is always bargaining!  We went to the pearl market and looked at some salt water and fresh water pearls.  We also learned how to tell a real one from a fake one, and what makes one worth more than another.  It all was very interesting!
The kiddos decided to do some bargaining as well....they sat in their strollers and traded snacks with each other.  It is probably one of the cutest things I've ever seen!

We also headed to a place called Shamain Island....and it is so much different and low key than the rest of the places we've been to in China.  It was actually relaxing and you never worried about getting ran over by a car or a scooter.  As you will see in the pictures below, it has more of a French European feel to it....maybe even New Orleans!  It was absolutely beautiful! 

 We went to a restaraunt called Lucy's, and it was delicious!  It had lots of American food, but we had sweet & sour chicken, rice, and Morris ordered onion rings as well!

Jett with his little buddy Kai....they are so cute together....and are awesome at sharing!!! Excited to see what these boys grow up and do in life!

More pictures of this pretty little town! 

They also had a Starbuck's and I will say that it is hands down the prettiest/coolest Starbuck's I've ever been too!  I absolutely loved it!

Hang'n with Daddy...listening to every word, and trying to understand whatever it is he is saying!

But not for long....cause he is busy like that!

It has been and great day....but we are SO ready to get home!  We have our US consulate appointment tomorrow morning, and prayers are appreciated!  Then we get our visas on Thursdays and leave Friday!  We are almost there....again, thank you for all your prayers, and words of encouragement, we are looking forward to being home together as a family of 7...and looking forward to introducing Jett to all of our family and friends!  We love you all!
