It's time for some more Black and White fun, curtesy of Lisa's blog at The Long Road to China.
Update: What with the massive amounts of snow falling in places that never get this much snow, check out this site for fun things to do with the kiddies on snow days.http://www.raisingsmallsouls.com/crafthappyebook.pdf
I had so much fun just watching these two monkeys, hamming it up for me. All I said was ok - kiss and they were off. There may be some acting blood in their veins too.
Today is Black and White Wednesday but it is also Milana's 6 month anniversary of our Gotcha day (August 10th). I'll do a post later today to mark it. Boggles my mind that it's been 6 months already.
Poor Milana doesn't know what's hitting her at times. Dahlia takes her sisterly responsibilities very seriously.
And due to popular demand ( umm...more than one = popular) here are some more glimpses
of our China trip last August
Summer Palace - Beijing
Below are some shots from a wonderful place called the Temple of Heaven in Beijing. It is a huge park with oodles of activities. It took us about 2 hours to walk through it without stopping and we still didn't even see half of it.
But the thing that was so awesome was what happens there everyday of the year. Dancing, singing, playing instruments and so many other ritual activities that I should remember the names of but by that point in our trip, I was brain-dead. (A state of mind that I am not altogether unfamiliar with. Ahem.)
Here was this cute couple, really dramatically doing the tango. There must have been about 200 tango dancers with the music just blaring from loud speakers all over the place. I could have stayed there all day just watching them. It was the strangest sight. And they all took their dancing very seriously.
I love the elegant pose of this lady. I found her all by herself, in a secluded area, just gracefully moving to the music.
Each area had a different type of music playing, many bands and musical groups and always dancers, dancing all types of styles.
And there's my girlie....getting in on the action.
