|Grace with the kids at the park entrance|
After receiving the passport, we stopped at a park where an emperor from the Qing dynasty was entombed. It was a brisk walk through the park, stopping to watch some people playing on the ice in the pond. It was actually a nice break from the hotel room and let the kids expend some energy before our 4 hour flight to Guangzhou. We said our goodbyes to Grace and our driver. They certainly made our time in Shenyang pleasant. Our flight was delayed and we couldn't find food at the terminal, but we were happy to see the familiar sight of the White Swan after we arrived and met our guide Helen.
This time our room overlooks the Pearl River and is just beautiful at night with all of the brightly colored lights.
We want to thank each and every one of you who is leaving encouraging comments and lifting us up in prayer. We can definitely feel the love, and it's so sweet to have a little contact with the outside world while we are so far away from home.
