Congress Hall at Tiananmen Square

Entrance to the Forbidden City

Split pants

Only 3 more days to Hannah. At this point, we are really ready to meet her. It has been nice to see Beijing, but we are done site seeing. Today we visited Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City and took a tour of Hutong (an old China city). All together we walked for 4 hours. Between not eating much and walking all day long, we have found a great weight lose system. I could give you a great history lesson on all that we saw today, but I won't. I will just just share a few photos with you.
We are finally sleeping a little better (we made it to 6am this morning), and once again are very ready for bed tonight. Four of our families are leaving tomarrow to go get their children, then 3 more leave on Wed. Since we have all day Wed by ourselves, we think we are going to treat ourselves to the spa. Please continue to keep us in your prayers. We can't belive we still have 12 days to go home before coming home, we are already very home sick. We love you all!!
