This is our guide, David. He looked after us so well while we were in Nanning. He even entertained the girls while we packed (that was more help than he'll ever know!). The kids really loved him!
The hand in the middle of the picture is Daddy's. He's trying to get the kids to look at the camera. Unfortunately, Mommy cut his head off since she was too busy looking at her pretty babies to notice that Daddy wasn't in the picture (bad Mommy!).
Not even Britney Spears is *THIS* bad! Look where our girls are standing! Both girls wanted to sit with David and couldn't resist the view from the front seat so they stood up all the way to the Nanning airport. Gwen tried to "help" the driver steer the van and change gears and he was a good sport about it while ensuring that we all arrived alive at our destination.
Without a car seat, Gwen is IMPOSSIBLE to control in a car or plane. She's a squirmy bouncy bundle of energy. Most of the time, she's standing in Mommy's lap holding onto her thumbs and jumping up and down with a huge goofy grin on her sweet little face.
The flight to Guangzhou was only one hour long but it was 60 minutes of pure challenge for Mom since Gwen needed to be entertained the whole time or she'd unfasten her seat belt and try to get out of her seat.
Here she is modeling Mommy's super mod reading glasses while sucking on a butterscotch lollipop. When she was finished, she turned around and used all her charm to seduce the man next to her into giving her most of his in-flight snack -- which she neatly placed in her barf bag before asking him for more.
All of this was yesterday evening. Today, our first stop was the Temple (We'll blog some pics of that later) and our 2nd stop was a department store to purchase two car seats for our trip home! 1300 Yuan each but well worth it!
