Beijing Zoo

Today, Silas and I headed to the Beijing Zoo.   We had a great afternoon and he loved all the animals.







Hmmm Men at work...just like at home





Micah was sick today, so Grandma stayed with him at the hotel, but he is already doing better.   The food here is a big change and can be hard on our systems!

We then went to the Acrobat Show and once again it was great.   Silas sat and watched the whole thing in complete awe.

He is reaching out more and more.   Hugging and letting me kiss him.   He loves to play rough and one thing we say often is Ching Ching Da (not sure how that is spelled) meaning Be Gentle!   He also started copying things we say more and is very proud of himself when he does.




Tomorrow is the big shopping day and the Tea Ceremony.

I'm still amazed-even after adopting four children-at how quickly they pick up the language. The zoo looks beautiful and the panda pic was pretty cute:)
Hope Micah is feeling better and that you all stay well.
Thank you so much for sharing your journey with us!

Poor Micah, hope he is feeling better soon!

I love how beautiful the zoo looks in the spring. It is so lush with all the greenage and flowers.

How wonderful he is continuing to open up more and more and allow the love!

Happy shopping tomorrow!

Oh the scenery is amazing! I breathed a sigh of relaxation just imagining myself being there. Silas just gets cuter all the time - he really is a gorgeous kid! I'm glad to hear the he is opening up to you more and more. I still can't wait to hear how he reacts to having 6 siblings when he gets home!

I love the picture of the two of you at the zoo. It looks like you are making good progress.

Wow, the zoo is incredibly green in the spring! Seeing the pictures certainly brings back good memories!
