More Xian Days


                        We have been sight seeing all over Xian and surrounding areas. We went to the Terracotta Warriors. These warriors were found by some farmers digging a well. They have repaired many of the warriors that were destroyed by a jealous general. These warriors were meant for the emperor's after life, so he would have a great army. Each one has a different face.

                         Next Day was a free day so we took Teagan to Ocean World Aquarium and then to Tang Paradise (Which is a beautiful park from the Tang Dynasty). We pretty much have been exploring all over Xian by a lot of walking and Taxi. It has been a fun adventure for sure!!!!!

                          Another fun thing happened yesterday morning when we were at breakfast. A mom of 13 kiddos with some adopted came to talk to us about Teagan. We talked for about 45 minutes and we met some of her crew that were in China. She said they were here for business. I asked what they did and it was Trim Healthy Mama!!!!! I had sat and spoke with Serene Allison and didn't even know it. Then I met Pearl and Evangeline. They are the sweetest and most down to earth mama's. It was a treat for sure to meet them and in Xian China of all places.

                             Tomorrow we fly to Guangzhou the third largest city in China for Teagan's medical exam and consulate appointment. We will be there for six days and fly home on the seventh day. Please continue to pray for safe travels and health and for our kiddos back home. Teagan has a cold so we actually started him on an antibiotic yesterday.
