social security

We applied for our little American citizen's social security card today.

Surreal experience, but everyone was very nice.

Once we get her social security number we can apply for her US passport.

pictures from Kai's camera

Kai Self Portrait

Kai's prized new quilt

around Guangzhou

getting into trouble
she will be walking before you know it
Jeff did all the peddling
Kai helped some
I tried but Yun Zhen didn't like getting bumped in the bum
more rides
I think that is what the guide thought we meant by "playground"
where the locals shop
wanted a wide angle lens to capture the sheer amount of people
tickle time

pictures of the guangzhou zoo

feeding the fish
feeding Yun Zhen
the panda
she's pretty old and doesn't go out much
Kai looked everywhere for kangaroos
this is the only one we found
can't have a children's attraction with out pay per rides

Kai loved them.
