Second Day of Touring Hunan
This morning we started at the Hunan Embroidery Museum. There are ladies there that work on pieces to show you how the embroidery is done. Hunan province is known for their embroidery. The work is beautiful but oh so expensive. We left the museum to head over to Martyrs Park. It is a huge park with different areas. There is a lake area with boat rides available. There is an amusement park with rides for children. There is a monument. The Chinese people use the park for morning exercises but we were too late to see these. We enjoyed walking around taking in the sights. Austin held Daddy's hands and walked around for a bit. He is trying to do more each day as he gets more comfortable with us. Austin wants to be with Daddy outside of the hotel, but today he did allow Mama to carry him some at the park. We fed the fish in the park. Austin wanted to eat the fish food, so Mama fed the fish. Austin enjoyed watching the fish come up out of the water to eat. We returned to the hotel for lunch and a nap. Austin is a great sleeper. He also enjoys playing inside the hotel room. Tomorrow we fly to Guangzhou to complete the US side of the adoption. We are looking forward to moving on with the process so we can return home to our girls. We miss them very much and they want to meet their brother. We have enjoyed touring the province of Austin's birth. The people are very friendly and interested in our story. Hope you enjoy the photos. We are still having to post photos separately.
