Around the Town...

Time for the obligatory picture dump. 

Shots taken from around Guangzhou (mostly Shamian Island) over the past 2 weeks.

Plenty of cute kids, brides getting portraits done, locals and the like.

It's a beautiful place any time of year and even though our weather has been chilly and gray we have still enjoyed the beauty of the area...

 for this last shot.  We may still be in China but it's playoff time baby!  Gotta keep up with the scores :)

Last night as we were leaving a restaurant with Sonia's family on our way home to the hotel, a gentleman from France saw our gaggle of kids running and giggling down the sidewalk and said to me, "Why so happy?  Why so happy?"

In response I said the only thing I could think of at the moment that would translate well.



  1. Family! Well said! We love you and can't wait for you all to come home. I love the pics. And, Bruce is happy you found a Steeler fan in China! (And why isn't Scott wearing a Steeler jersey???) :)

  2. Great Pictures...The kids will love them!!! Yes, Family says it all...we love you guys, and can't wait to see all the pictures, and to have everyone home safely. Love to All!!!

  3. Family indeed!
    I do love all the pretty decorations. That was one part of being in China near CNY that was extra special. I just love the lanterns nearly everywhere.
    And your pictures. So many wonderful ones. Some of my favorites were your kids being silly at the wonderful statues scattered across the island. Fun stuff.
    You're in the homestretch now!

  4. ahhh...makes me miss GuangZhou.

  5. Absolutely, FAMILY is God given. I thank Him every day for mine. What great pictures, and I can't wait to see more when you all are back home. Hope the winds are behind you on your airplanes. Love Ya!!!!! Mom
