Happy Birthday to Ronnie!!

It seems that I can post to the blog, but I can't read it so I hope these posts and photos are making it on ok. Today is Ron's birthday and we celebrated by venturing out on our own in a taxi to the Silk Market, which is a HUGE shopping market where you can buy anything your heart dreams up. Ron is thrilled with his purchase of new Bushnell binoculars and he thinks he can now see Olivia's orphanage in Hunan from our hotel window in Beijing! We are meeting up with our guide and the other family that is here now to go to dinner and tour a Hutong which I'm really excited about, but I'm more excited about the fact that 48 hours from now, Olivia will be in my arms. Here are a few photo's from today, I hope they post. The red sign is posted in the Silk Market and is intended as a code of conduct for the merchants about how they should and shouldn't talk to customers - pretty funny!
