Dirty Laundry and Dragon Boats

As we are winding down on our China adventures, we have done and seen a lot of crazy/fun things. Our trip has been filled with plane rides, crazy traffic, and this....

Yes! Laundry!

And these people aren't shy about what they hang outside their apartments!

You laugh, but this is what our hotel bathroom looks like too! No, I will not show you a picture of that. But I Will tell you that I am so ready for my clothes to be put in the dryer so they will regain their shape! We have been able to send out some of our laundry, but I think I'd rather keep the unmentionables and socks in house to clean!
Today was a pretty uneventful day! No undie sightings for us. It was our off day and we chose to spend it sleeping in and then taking a stroll in the park!

OMG was it hot! I'm talking Memphis in July heat and humidity! We lasted all of an hour before we took cover back in the hotel to cool off!

I thought it would be a great idea to get some pics of Lynleigh....

She did not!

I'm not sure she understands the importance of posing! I guess her brothers will have to explain that one in a few days!
Tonight was the last night our whole group spent together. Some of the families leave tomorrow. Boy are they lucky! So, we got together and took a group photo!

After the photo, we took a bus down to the river dock for a boat ride and Papa John's Pizza.

Guess who likes pizza?

The boat ride was awesome! We got to experience the Festival of Lights. I'm not sure what that celebrates but it was pretty non the less!

I think it was a great way to spend the last night as a group! Tomorrow morning, we head to the US Consulate to take our oath. We aren't allowed to taking anything in with us so I won't be able to show you.
Just two more nights in Guangzhou and then off to Hong Kong for one night! I am so ready to come home I can't stand it! Two weeks is too long to go without my boys! I can't wait to smooch their faces and introduce them to the cutest little sister anyone could ever ask for!
