What a great day

We got up way too early for my taste, but it was well worth it. We left the house at 8:45 am to head to the Cape. It took us two hours to get to Hyannis. At 11:15 am we boarded the Cape Cod Railroad train and set off 15 minutes later. CAWLI, an adoption agency in Boston was having a benefit for an orphanage in China. While we are not a CAWLI family, we try to get involved in any way we can when it comes to Ping's heritage. Our agency doesn't do anything in MA. They do things in Texas. The train ride was an hour and there was music and a face painter and balloons. We had a wonderful time. We got to meet others who have adopted and share our stories of our children.

Once we finished our ride, we headed home. We had terrible weather on the way home. Torrential downpours. We stopped for coffee for Bill, a quick trip to Walmart and some gas. We then made our way to a temple in Worcester to see a Jade Buddha that was here for a short time. We jumped out of the car to get a few pictures and we were going to walk around, but it was so crowded, you could barely move.

Once home, we fed Ping and those two went to bed. I stayed up to watch a great Hallmark movie and now I am heading to take a soak in the tub.
