Banana Leaf~ Then and Now

December, 2006 (13 months) 
 November, 2008 (just turned 3!)
July, 2010 (4.5)

With our first agency (AWAA), our guides, Rosa and Maggie always took families to a restaurant in Guangzhou called the Banana Leaf. It is my favorite place there to eat. It's across from the Garden Hotel, next to the Friendship Store. Even though we were with a different agency and had a different guide, we DID end up at the Banana Leaf again, with a family from our travel group. We all had a great time and it was once again our best meal in Guangzhou and we had so much fun watching the little kids go up and dance!

Anyway, I just had to share these pictures. AnnaClaire has always been a huge fan of the Banana Leaf. Even at 13 months, she just danced and danced her way through dinner. And some things just never change :)

Just look at how much sweet Anna Claire has grown! I have very happy memories of being crowded around the table with your family in 2008. I love that both our families have been back to the Banana Leaf since then...

I've been following your blog for a while now but this is my 1st comment. I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoy reading about your family. Your heartwarming way of writing about them makes us feel like part of the family.
Please continue, as you are such a role model for others your age. I've had my faith strengthened by your loving words.
