3 words

Eme & I headed to the woods of Georgia this weekend to spend some good times with the girls.

I was really nervous to fly with Eme girl alone and though she did fabulous, I was thankful for the short flight!...another 30 minutes on that plane and the outcome might have been different.

When Mare and I were on our way back to the airport we were chatting about the future, like in 10 years when all our teenage girls are laying awake at night chatting about their crazy Mom's and talking about life. It's a fun connection for our girls and I look forward to all the times we are able to get together to make some memories. So in honor of that, here are my 3 words and some random photos of the weekend.

& even though we were missing a few gals....they weren't far from heart.

Some random photos of our weekend.
I love how Low-Low is so obedient to just sit there and keep smiling as the scene gets ugly with Eme....

Just monkey'ing around.
Cooking class...
Gumbo Girls!
Eme LOVED Big Daddy's Gumbo! She ate 2 full servings plus 2 servings the next day for lunch! Big Daddy does make the best gumbo ever!
Eme could NOT stay away from the dog dishes...AT ALL.
Eme's exploratory behavior was causing Low-Low great distress. Low-Low is a very well behaved, smart child who listens very well and seems to be very clear on the rules of proper behavior, unlike my uncivilized munchkin who is always in motion and grabbing at something all the time;0) She's a work in progress.
a relaxing float, except for Sophie who is all over the pool, she is quite the little fish!

Thanks for the good time girls!

that peace photo is AWESOME. Just love it!
So glad you guys came - these times together are priceless.
I'm telling you - my gal needs to go through detox after what she saw/heard this weekend.
After you guys left she took a 2 1/2 hour nap - she was exhausted. so was mama - not used to staying up so late any longer. After Low-Low woke up from her nap, we sat on my bed reading books and playing and just relaxed. LET THE DETOX BEGIN!!!!!!!!

We saw the Tongginator's "China cousin" this weekend. We've had between four and six visits together every year since we left Guangzhou together. You will treasure these early photos SO VERY MUCH as they get older. Sometimes we just giggle together, looking at them as babies/ toddlers. They both start kindergarten next week. *sob*

Looks like it was a great weekend. How fun for the "little" girls to become friends just like the big girls!!

The photos are beautiful!
