Bonding Day


We just finished up our second full day with Grace. There were no required outings today, and it was recommended that we keep things low key and allow her to become more comfortable with us. So that's what we did! Most of the day was spent in the hotel room. We got out for two separate walks. First, we went for one just before lunch around the lake area that is in front of our hotel, although it was extremely humid today (again) and really almost unbearable. Twenty minutes was really all we could stand, and Grace was clearly hot, tired, and hungry. So were we!

We had a good nap (especially Adam), played with some toys, and sang some songs. We went for another walk in the evening before dinner, and it was much nicer with a breeze. This time, we went behind the hotel to a little garden area with some ponds and bridges. Grace was very full of energy and had to be held tightly because she was running so fast. We took a piggy back ride on daddy's shoulders and went to the hotel's Japanese restaurant for dinner.

All of the hotel staff loves to see Grace bounding around the halls. She loves to climb the stairs in the lobby as well. All the waitresses in the different restaurants have been playful with her and think she is very cute. She loves to eat (especially noodles, just as we were told, but also asparagus), and can be quite the ham at the dinner table. We are doing our best to not laugh too much at her antics, because she clearly loves the audience and will get more and more rambunctious if allowed!

Tomorrow we are off to Panda World, which should be exciting!
