Kind of a lot to say

Yesterday was really quite fun! Actually we did so much so here's the story...

We hopped on a bus at about 9:30 a.m and it was sooooooo crowded! We thought that since it was a holiday we might or might not get seats... well us girls and my Dad got to sit down but it was still super crowded. Our friends who were meeting us couldn't get on so they got on another bus. We got to our destination, which by the way was a Mountain! There was this bridge that you could walk across over a marsh which was really fun! You have to pay to get in and hike but it wasn't that much and we hiked up to the top and had a ton of fun! We were looking out at the city and all the chinese people weren't even looking at the scenery, instead they were focused on looking at us. At one point, while waiting for the Mom's (with the lunch) Leah, Becca and I sat down on a big rock and about 30 or more people SWARMED in on us (mostly young men ;) and began taking pictures either with us or just of us. It was literally hilarious and there were sooooo many people. My cheeks got sore. After the mountain we hiked down and ate lunch. Thennnn, we found this ride sort of thing. It was a huge plastic ball and two people could get in and they would push you out into the pond/lake. Lydia and I tried it and it is soooo much fun!
Your just in this ball in the water and you can do anything!!!!! Once we get the pictures I will so put them up and show you how much fun this is.
After everything had been done, including getting street food such as Pineapple and cotton candy it was about 4:00 p.m or 5:00 p.m (I don't know) we decided to go out to dinner at Malone's (american food!)
With everybody! It was yummy! The bus to it was again, so crowded and very stuffy and no seats but it wasn't that long. Lydia and Leah came home with us and spent the night (a great way to end your super day) The End.

I got sunburnt on my face but to tell you the truth, I haven't had much color for awhile and to get a little red (hopefully to turn into tan!) was a little nice. hahahaha. Pictures to come of that whole day :)

(Not my favorite of me but thanks to Bethy for taking these) 
Today we walked down to our neighborhood market place and I got two cute little notebooks, and an awesome Rainbow umbrella!!!! It's so cool and very "Snazzy". I love it and I now have my own, rainbow umbrella~

  3. What a jolly Umbrella! The picnic and Street-Food-Findings sound especially nice.

  4. Sounds like a really great day, Annie! When are you going to post photos? Bethy did a good job on the umbrella photos!
