Last week we found out that we were officially logged into China on September 26. Apparently now we wait for a letter of approval from China. I have heard that these can take 30 days to 90 days. Actually due to timing with work we will be freaking if it comes soon since I cannot imagine traveling right after the 1st of the year. I guess everything is in God's hands. But we did get a little update on her today no photo :( though. She is doing very well and still going right along developmentally with peers. Her problems with her arm are not holding this little girl back at all.

Most of the time we stayed at the beach or in the pool but we did take the time to visit some cool local places. One day we hit Gumbo Limbo which is a nature center. It was pretty cool and the kids got to see some really little turtles, huge lobsters, stingrays, lots of gross spiders, etc. Another day we also hit up a local children's science museum. The kids had a great time here and we couldn't get them to leave. It had a lot of hands on activities and was perfect for the little ones. The big kids even got in there and played to their hearts content. The only other major activity we did was head to Lion Country Safari. The kids all loved this park since for the first part you drive through a safari and get to see a ton of animals. Then you visit a small amusement park section. There were a few kiddie rides, boat rides, paddle boats, a petting zoo, and just some other animals to see. The kids had a great time here and it was worth the trip. They even got to feed giraffes which they thought was the most awesome thing ever. Overall it was a great trip with some much needed family time. This time next year we will be chasing the 6 of them around on vacation.
