2: So many places to take pictures, so little time!
3: I cant remember what we're doing here, but from the look on my fathers face I have probably either passed gas or said "shut up" - both of which cause this face....

15: Tens of thousands of people come here every year, and we were 7 of them :)

36: Tree of Lovers... or something. I cant remember what it was really called, but it was a famous tree :) The emperors used to collect trees and even boulders for the garden in the palace.
38: Cant believe we actually made it! What an amazing opportunity to see the Great Wall of China! | So glad to be able to share it with Bekah
39: Bekah was wearing three pants, four socks, two shirts, a hoodie, two winter coats, a scarf, two gloves and ear warmers! | Our tour of the Great Wall took us for about a quarter mile along a historical landmark so impressive, it can be seen from space!
44: Kaylee and Abby are always up to something. As much as they keep us laughing, they were no match for the pair of rather drunk Chinese men who were singing and laughing their way across the wall. No way I was going to miss that photo op!
46: Best Friends | What an amazing opportunity!
48: This was another of those pictures that was just too good to pass up! I'll give it to him though, it was VERY cold! | Bekah was so concerned about us going that she almost got hit by the car behind her. It was SO FUNNY!
49: Duck Feet, Olympic Venues, tour guides, smog, winter coats, temples, walls, vans, airports, cameras, fried rice, hotels, mom laughing, Ryan eating - GOOD TIMES!
50: Even though we were only there for 10 days, what a great opportunity to see a different part of the world and experience something truly amazing! | And what an amazing opportunity to spend time with family and rekindle great friendships.
