China Day 3: Tiananmen Square and Forbidden City

I had to publish 2 posts today, so scroll down to the next post and don't miss the Great Wall! :)

Today we went to Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City with about 500,000 other people! Literally. I don't think I've mentioned yet, but we are celebrities here. No matter where we go people are taking pictures of us. They either try and sneak pictures or ask or scoop up one of the kids and take pictures with them. It was weird at first but now we are used to it! haha! After doing LOTS of walking we went to lunch(have I mentioned I don't like the food) and then to a silk factory. After that we came back to our room and then took a short walk to the Ferrari dealership! My big boys and my husband were in heaven! AND THEN WE WENT TO STARBUCKS! April and Reece were in heaven! :) Last night we ended up not being able to go to the food market. Brooks couldn't wake up from his nap, no joking there..we tried to wake him up and it was like he was possessed. So, he fell back asleep and we went to bed shortly after. Jet lag is the devil. So, tonight we went! Griffin ate scorpions and Peyton ate grasshoppers! EWWWWW. We saw some crazy things that people eat. Everything from starfish to squid, quail and all types of bugs. We are back in the room now packing up because tomorrow we leave the beautiful city of Beijing and fly down to Nanning in southern China! MONDAY IS GOTCHA DAY!

I can't even wrap my mind around my life right now!

Josh made a friend!

This is how we feel about being SO FREAKING COLD!

 Candied apples!
