Special Visitors!

We had some special visitors last weekend. One of our Chinese's families was passing through Va and stayed a couple of nights with us. We also called another one our Chinese families that live pretty close and made a "mini" reunion of it. The girls are now getting older and are really starting to bond. It is so special watching them connect and build friendship. First we all meet up at a local mall for a Chinese New Year Celebration that was total craziness! We missed it all the lion dance, dragon parade and all. How? Don't really know! After dealing with the massive crowds for awhile we all headed back to our house to hang out. The girls did not waste anytime and got down to business right away.

I just love it when the girls get to visit their China sisters! It's always such fun! That sounds like so much fun! We may just have to make a detour there on our way east some day!

Great photos, as always!
