All Boy!

Peng is all boy, let me tell you. I obviously have never had a boy, though Zion comes close. Today we took the kids to a play place inside a store. There was this kiddie car that you could ride down a ramp that was like 18" tall at the highest point. Peng loved it. Next thing David notices is him up in the play area - picture one of those McDonalds things, carrying the car through this tube up over us. We hear a terrific CRASH! The child tried to ride the little car down the big corkscrew slide.

Gotta love it.

Here is one of my three sweeties here in China. We took a photo of Sarah with Ronnie when we adopted her. I really can't stand McDs, but it has a picture menu, and it is easier to play charades there than in, say the sidewalk cafe where the dumplings hold things you may not wish for, but you can't tell by looking at the outside of them. We will brave the Chinese food again tomorrow, but tonight was ice cream and fries and corn. Yes, corn is the default McD's side item, not fries.

You've never had a boy? What am I, chopped liver? :D

I'm glad things seem to be going smoothly getting Peng! For some reason I truly expected to read horror story after horror story about the beaurocracy and suchnot -- but he's already with you? That's fantastic!

I hope everyone is having fun and it seems like Peng is already very happy with you guys. Heidi: I take it he has yet to learn the true nature of your insanity?!

As a Big Brother, let me warn Sara that if Peng is anything like my little brother, he will be a rambunctious, teasing little brat sometimes (most of the time?), but at the end of the day it's worth it... Because eventually you'll only have to pay 1/3 for mothers' and fathers' day gifts!

Cheers, luck and lots of love!

I think it is hilarious to find McD's wherever I go. Although the food isn't always comparable. In Germany the fries were disgusting, and they gave us BBQ sauce instead of ketchup. And in Luxumburg they had McBEER!!! It was disgusting!

Love the pictures. Please keep telling us more. We are all here hanging on your every word!
