I’m a Big Brother!
We started today out swimming with my Dad and brother Matt. The water was freezing, but we got used to it after about 5 minutes. Ryan, the pool is huge. You can see it in the picture below. It has a waterfall, too.
We went to lunch at Lucy’s and had a cheeseburger. It was a little sweeter than America’s. Next we went to a building and on the 8th floor we had to wait for our baby sister Elizabeth to be brought in for us.
When they brought in Elizabeth, I thought in my head “Yay!”
Matthew, you asked if our baby sister cries a lot. She doesn’t cry a lot because she is a deep sleeper.
Her nickname is Dan-Dan because her Chinese name is Nan Yun Dan. I got to hold Elizabeth second when she came.
Lizzie asks if the hotel is nice. Both hotels in Beijing and Guangzhou are very nice. We have two rooms connecting that give me and Matt our own space. Tyler asked me if China is cool. It’s fun to visit and I wouldn’t mind living here.
Mrs Snader, the KFC popcorn chicken is spicier than in the United States. McDonald’s double cheeseburger tastes the same.
Here is a video of our first day of sightseeing in Beijing.
Here is a video of the everything that happened that day.
