One Year Ago Today Across The Ocean Far, Far Away...

We decided to start a new family tradition- every year we will re-live our incredible journey to bring home Sasha Jade by watching ourselves on the computer from this side of the ocean... one year later and one year wiser... Your comments are always welcome:

Wednesday In Guangzhou

Today started with breakfast 
and a walk around the hotel garden

followed by some dancing in the lobby

Sasha and Mommy needed to leave for the
official swearing in ceremony at the 
United States Consulate

and then we had a celebration dinner 
on the 30th floor of the hotel

we enjoyed the view 
and the revolving restaurant was fun

our dear Xi Xi 
eating something that could watch her eat 
shrimp eyes
we were on top of the world

(this was a rare and wonderful moment)

everyone joining in on the brotherly love fest

we were having so much fun 
we decided to take a late night swim

''Call the clan,
call the tribe, 
call the network, 
call the family,
whatever you call it, 
you need one.''
