We had a craving for American style pizza - our first since returning from China, so we went to one of the local pizza places. It was a long wait for our pizza but well worth it when it came! Here's Sophie trying to be patient.
Peter and Jack's 15 year old cousin, Alex is here visiting us for a week. The boys LOVE having him around and they rarely let him out of their room!
Sue, also getting hungry as we wait for our pizza to be delivered.
OK, Chinese friends, here's an authentic American pizza restaurant for you... and it smells so GOOD inside!
Gosh, we live in a small town! We ran into one of our old friends, Scott Simmons who was also coming in for lunch.
The monsoon started in the afternoon as it usually does this time of year, and we got not only rain, but HAIL! Jack had to go out and stand in it to see how it felt.
The streets are so deserted compared to China! This is about 1pm on a Thursday... where are all of the bicycles carrying people rushing around under their rain ponchos??
Alex, outside, checking out the storm...
The next stop was the local ice cream store - actually frozen yogurt, at the TCBY...
The boys enjoyed their ice cream...
... and I saw this old cowboy "chewing the fat" with some other customers... you wouldn't see someone like him in China!
