Yesterday Joe and I ventured to China Town in Los Angeles for an FCC(Families with Children from China) waiting families dinner. It was held at a Chinese restaurant in China Town. It was really neat to meet other people who are in the same boat we are, waiting for their children. We even met one couple that not only is using our agency, but is also in our group. That means we will be traveling together when we go to China! Pretty cool. After dinner we did a little shopping at the stores in China Town. I picked up a few knick knacks, and Joe got a set of Chinese swords. What is it with men and swords? That was the only thing he asked me to bring him from China when I went three years ago, but I couldn't find any while I was there. Now he has some and is already planning on displaying them proudly on the wall in our bedroom. Yay. Actually they're kind of cool. I'm glad we went.
Here are some pics:

Joe spent almost a dollar trying to get his coin to land in this pot. I did it on my first try(hee!)

FCC Waiting families groups are a great source of information and support. We love the Jacksonville FCC group.
Glad you had fun; we need to find the closet "Chinatown" to us!

Way cool about meeting some travel mates. Will sure help to pass the time. Looks like a beautiful place to visit. Wish we had something like that.
