Chinese Proverb

Red Threads:
When a child is born, an invisible red thread reaches out from the child's spirit and connects to all important people who will enter the child's life. As the child grows, the threads shorten, bringing closer those people who are destined to be together.

Safari Park Tuesday

Austin loved seeing all of the animals. We have another animal lover on our hands. This is a great thing since we are a zoo visiting family. He pointed and smiled at all he could see. He would get mad if the walk was too far between exhibits.
The safari park has 12 pandas. They are the largest zoo in Asia and maybe the world. We spent all day at the park. They have a walking side and a riding side. There is a tram that drives you around on a 40 minute ride. We had a wonderful day at the safari park.

Austin was not sure about the dressed up characters. He cried when they got too close.

This sign made us laugh. Guess things do get lost in translation.

Austin usualy takes a 2 hour nap, but not today. He had so much fun looking at animals he would not sleep. Finally he fell asleep late in the afternoon for 5 minutes. He woke right back up and was mad he was missing the rest of the animals. He was a good boy and rode around in the Ergo carrier. He did fuss a little after missing nap but overall he was excellent.

Austin is working on walking more each day. We are so proud of his progress in such a short time.
Austin loves ice cream. We stopped for a treat as we waited for the bus to pick us up. This ice cream was Pleasant Goat. This is a popular cartoon for Chinese children. In the bottom of the ice cream was a little Pleasant Goat toy.

After we got back to the hotel it was 5:30 PM. We walked next door to McDonalds for a quick dinner. We ate with our new friends from Missouri. We had an early morning next day appointment for the Consulate so we planned to turn in early for the night. This was a great decision since Austin was so tired.
