Shamian Island & Dinner Cruise

Today was a full day of fun!
While we wait for our consulate appointment to be rescheduled, which was cancelled due to a situation that arose this week, we are having a good time and exploring as much of Guangzhou as we can.
This morning our travel group went to beautiful Shamian Island for site-seeing, shopping and lunch.
This evening our travel group enjoyed a lovely dinner cruise where we enjoyed the bright lights of Guangzhou.

Miss E getting ready for a fun day of shopping!  Isn't she cute!?!
Eliana loves to pull me along as we walk places.  She is such a determined little lady!
We ate lunch at the famous Lucy's.  We even happened to be seated by the Alabama license plate!  It was so good to have a burger for lunch!
Eliana fell asleep on the way to our dinner cruise.  She is quite the little sleeping beauty!
 The Canton Tower in Guangzhou is the tallest building in Asia.  It is absolutely gorgeous when it is all lit up at night!

Eliana absolutely adores her Daddy!  We had so much fun looking at all of the beautiful buildings and cool bridges.  Everything was lit up!
Eliana wore her new, traditional silk dress for our dinner cruise.
Isn't she lovely!?!
Today was a lot of fun, and we are so thankful to have this opportunity to learn more about this amazing place full of history and culture.

Please pray for the situation with the US Consulate.  We are ready to get back home to our boys and finally be a family of five (on the same continent)!  As of right now, we do not know when we will be able to go home.  We are waiting for the US Consulate to re-open and reschedule our appointment.
