Oath Taking Ceremony

We had our appointment at the U.S. Consulate here in Guangzhou today (on the trip there and back, I was reminded just how crazy the traffic is here - seriously, the lines and signs are not even suggestions, rather mere decorations) and took an oath so we could obtain Aiden's visa on Thursday. If everything goes well, we get it that afternoon and head to Hong Kong that night. God willing, we fly out of Hong Kong on Friday afternoon and arrive in Sioux Falls Friday night. We didn't do much else today other than the oath taking ceremony and some shopping. Love doing that! Probably the biggest news of the day is --- Aiden and Daddy have played together a couple times. Both times included Daddy holding, tickling and cuddling with Aiden. Of course, Daddy is willing to do some crazy things Mommy would never dream of doing, and Mommy tends to get a little nervous, but the boys are having a great time and they are bonding! One step closer to Mommy not carrying the little tyke everywhere. It's hard to believe we only have one full day left in Guangzhou. It has been beautiful, amazing, and so much fun. I'm not sure I'm ready to head back home and to reality. Besides, these upper 80s are seeming pretty nice right now. Pretty sure tomorrow will be a nice lazy day out by the pool. After all, there's only so much shopping I can ask Troy to do! :)
