Pearl River Cruise!

So today started out as a lazy day. Or a do-nothing day as I like to call it. We went to breakfast at 9:00 am and went to SUSAN'S and got a dress for me (: (: We then went back to the room and had to stay there from 10:30-12:00 in case there was a problem with our paper work and Elvin needed to get in touch with us. Thankfully we never got "that call" We left the room and went shopping at 12:30ish. We got a few things from "A Gift from China" that store has my heart! (: We shopped until around 2:00 and then went back to the room to put the littles down for a nap. My Mom, Kathleen, Mema, & I went to some more stores and got some things. We also got our Red Couch silk outfits!!! Yeaaah! We are going to coordinate. (: We got back to the room at 4:30 and got ready for the Pearl River Cruise. It was great. We had an OK meal. I ate rice. I guess some liked it. Andrew learned how to eat corn on the cob. It was hilarious. I attached some pictures of it. The BEST part was that we got to go up to the top of the ship look around. It was beautiful. I loved it. The sights were unbelieveable!!! The water was beautiful, the smell of the wind was so refreshing. It is like nothing you have ever experienced. I think the best part of the day was "Tour Bus Karaoke" It started off with Elvin singing "Mom's are the best in the World" and then Anna Grace singing "Jesus Loves Me" and "You are my Sunshine" next up was MollyClaire with "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" I got told to sing and they kept saying "Ashton, Ashton, Ashton" and a new color of red came to my face. Yeah, I did not sing. Haha. So today was a great day. Beijing feels like an eternity ago, Saturday seems like 5 years ago. This seems so crazy. Time has flown by. I am ready for home but I am really not.

Oh and PS...
If you can ever request a guide in Guangzhou ask for Elvin!!! HE IS AMAZING!!! I wish we would have had him the ENTIRE time!
