Our guide said our girls were very happy, we call it ornery, they call it happy. Okay. We told him they are happy to have mommas, of course. They both seem a bit nervous being here, quiet at times, but mostly energized like endless batteries are powering them. They are wanting to be called by their Chinese names, and our guide says Kat name means "peaceful deep red color" and Caidi's means "vibrant red color". Funny, they are so close in so many ways so no wonder. We were told Kat's second name meant "child" so this was interesting to learn.
Lunch was delicious, we had spicy chicken dish, rice, egg and tomato dish, and dumplings- oh how these girls LOVE dumplings. Then back to our ride and off to the silk market. Amazing those little bugs make such lovely things, glad I know the bugs are gone though, since I am bug phobic. I got pillow covers for my livingroom.
We went to a cool tea house, the tea was wonderful. I spent a bit on tea, couldn't help myself. It will last a long time and we had to get a pee pee boy after Kat and Caidi enjoyed the little clay boy you test the water temp with- he pees when it's the right temp. They laughed like nuts. Again, we gathered a crowd, we seem to do that a lot, or should I say the girls do, we are pretty sure the guide was picking up girls with our daughters following him all over and mine insisting on him carrying her.
Now the girls are watching a movie and Miss Kitty is trying to fall asleep, nope, not happening, she has another 2 hours to go before bedtime.
Can't believe I am so close to Chloe, it's hard to not want to leave NOW, go get her but we are enjoying Beijing, it's amazing here.
