Bye Bye Bailey & Braden!

Well, Unfortunately, the kids left to go back home to Washington on the 2nd. We had a wonderful visit with them and did lots of fun stuff! We got to go to the park every day and have lunch and play on the "shlide" (Sarah's word for slide). We got to go to the movies 3 times, went to the zoo, went swimming at the local pool and at our friend's outdoor pool a bunch of times...I think it was 6 or 7. We went to the Library and learned some origami, that was fun. They got to go and play at another friend's house a few times. It was just a really busy month! We're really happy that they came to see us and we miss them a lot, already. It was really cute, the next day after we took them to the airport, Sarah stood at the top of the stairs that led to the basement, (where Bailey & Braden's bedrooms are) and screamed, "BAILEY!!!" and pointed down there. It was really cute, I had to tell her that they went, BYE-BYE. She still went down there to check for herself. She misses them a lot, too. It was a little difficult for her to get adjusted at first to them being here, she was jealous especially of Braden and how he and Troy were affectionate. Then at the end, she realized that her big brother loved her and she'd give him kisses on the cheek all the time. It was adorable. Here are some photos of their last day here.

Here are the kids and their Daddy at the airport minutes before they left on the plane.

Since we had plenty of time, their plane didn't leave until 6:20pm we went swimming one last time! Braden's playing with those noodles!

Bailey is going for a ride on her noodle!

Once we were dressed Sarah was causing havoc on the family locker room!

Look, Lao Lao-my pink bikini you got me looks cute, huh?

And here she is drying off a little with her towel/cover up that Lao Lao made her! Yeah it's a little big, so what?

Look Baba, I fit in the locker pretty well and my outfit even matches!

Okay Okay, Mama, I'll get out of the locker!

IT was sad to see them go, but they will be back another day! I'm sure it is bitter sweet when they go. We enjoyed spending time with them.
