(I have no idea how in the world I got this picture. I didn't think it was even possible to get 2&3 year olds to sit next to eachother and smile sweetly...)
Today was another very fun day. First of all I have to mention that AnnaClaire kept her diaper dry ALL NIGHT LONG!! That was the first time EVER! We were so proud of her, as normally her diaper is completely soaked and sometimes she even soaks through the crib. So it really was HUGE that she kept her diaper dry all night. We weren't expecting that for a looooooooooong time! Anyway, today was much warmer than yesterday so we all enjoyed the beach. Claire and AnnaClaire got really brave and even went in a little (Claire more than AC). By the way- the water is FREEZING. However, they loved running all the way to their ankles, jumping over the waves, and then running back away from the next wave. They laughed and laughed and laughed. AnnaClaire loved me to hold her or hold hands and run in with her. I have some really cute action shots from the girls running in the waves. The C's also have these really big, fun shovels and AnnaClaire absolutely loves digging with them! Needless to say, we were having so much fun that we didn't come back for naps until close to 3:30! After naps, I took a few pictures of the girls (got a few cute ones!) and we went to an Irish resaurant. It was amazing. The girls had such fun! AnnaClaire and Lucy's highchairs were next to eachother and they just talked the whole time. It was so cute to hear their conversations. They would just talk and the squeal and crack up laughing at eachother. It really is special that these girls will always have the bond of being Chenzhou sisters. We are pretty sure that they were in the same room together, which is really special. Anyway. We had an amazing banana desert and then headed to the park. The girls had an absolute BLAST! They were sweaty SWEATY afterwards! Their black hair really attracts the sun! We cooled off in the basement with ice water while being entertained by AnnaClaire and Claire's stories. It's really amazing how much all three of these girls talk! They talk and talk and never stop talking! After stories, it was bed time for the little ones! Can't wait for another beach day tomorrow... it's supposed to be warm again =]. Well my computer is about to die and you'll probably be hearing all of this again when I get back, because I'll probably forget what I've already written.... so that's it for now.
