First Birthday Party, Guangzhou, China

Hi all:

Sorry about no posts for a few days - I was busy flying back to the States! I'll write up that LOOONNGG trip in chronological order in a few days. Meanwhile back to our time in China ...

Monday afternoon, one of the families threw a first birthday party for all the girls, since they were all born in late October or November 2005. What a hoot!

Here's Lilly motoring all around the room. She had a big breakthrough Monday and became very social and the life of the party. Great timing!!

Here's Aunt Laura, one of the party hostesses, and Abby, who got to blow out the birthday candles on behalf of the babies!

Here's most of the birthday girls - or as many as we could assemble before they started crying or getting away!

Here's Lineker, one of our guides, with Lillie. Believe it or not there were three Lily's in our group, all spelled differently, Lily, Lilly, and Lillie!

Here's our other guide, Amy, enjoying the party. Both of these guides have been with America World (AWAA) since the beginning, over 10 years. We were Lineker's 102nd group!

Take care,
