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:

Shopping On Shamian

We went shopping tonight!
I'm glad we stayed in a hotel off the island, it's very muddy and a big mess because of all the construction for the upcoming Asian Games. I really can't understand why so much money is being poured into refacing the buildings and storefronts, the businesses here are being negatively affected by it, this is such a waste of money! Refacing to Safe Face?

Shamian Island
it's beautiful here

Constructing a better "face" for Asian Games

Sasha is asking everyone to pose for the camera
and she wants us to hold up the "peace sign"

where's Xi Xi?
this is inside the White Swan Hotel

neither rain, construction, or mud will keep us from shopping

that's me way in the back negotiating...

...oh no! Sasha-Sticker-Girl Strikes again!!!!
It took a few minutes to peel all the stickers off the carpet...!
