We're a little lonely for old friends here in Beijing, so we were very excited when Blake told us he was coming for a visit. Brian asked the girls several times to "guess how many days till Blake comes!," before he realized most people were counting down till Christmas, which was a day earlier.
We did a little sight-seeing and Blake, who lived in China several years ago, introduced us to some new delicious Chinese dishes. After staying with us, he did some more traveling with a friend within China, then returned for a few days. We had our hands full with the girls most of the time. Pretty much our only pictures from his visit are Maggie's. You can read more about his visit and travels in China at his blog. Maybe he'll share some pictures soon too.
