The Bronze Children

I don't have much time to post, and I had no time to edit these pics like I would have liked, but they are too precious not to share. These were completely unposed, and the moment was so sweet. She was so intrigued by each statue, and took her time with each one. By the time she was done, I had taken a gazillion pics and she had collected quite the crowd. Enjoy!!

Gracie definitely looks like she enjoys entertaining herself. She is so cute and the big bows look beautiful on her. GZ looks like a beautiful place. The trees in the background are beautiful.

Cherish the rest of your journey:)

Love the pics of her with these gorgeous statues. So sweet!

Just a few more sleeps until all 6 of your babies will be under one roof!!

And she sports it well! She makes a great southern Belle..:)
The pic of her checking out that little girl statue is precious! Looks like she's thinking...who are you??
Love it!!

Lindy D. said...

Oh my, look how sweet she is with those statues! So curious and affectionate. Gracie is such a darling little girl. No wonder she drew a crowd. I've seen so many pictures of children with these statues, but nothing as cute as these. Magical, indeed!

Kristi said...

I love these pictures. So cute.

And this Chicago girl misses having girls little enough for bows.

Maybe we need a third . . . :)

It took me right back to Guangzhou! Feels like we were just there! I am so jealous that you got Gracie a hankie for her wedding day. I totally didn't think of that! Maybe next time! Hope you enjoy the island and have a wonderful end to your time in China. Enjoy every moment! Praying for you guys in Texas!

Christina said...

Girl, you know I LOVE those big bows! The third one down is a heart-melter for sure! I hope you are having a marvelous time- I know you miss the kids at home, but savor these last few days. :)

I love Shannon's comment - a high school classmate? :)

I do not think Gracie could be any cuter! How is the Victory? How is the Starbucks?

Isa + Steph + Sijia said...

Those pictures are amazingly beautiful... just like your daugther!

Shannon said...

Don't know if that was a future prediction for another trip to China, but now that I'm reading thru the comments, I realize that Gracie makes #5, not 6. Duh!

She is just her precious little self her isn't she? I LOVE how she is interacting with the bronzes. I really cannot wait to meet this lil firecracker!!!! Kate adores all the hairstyles:)

K said...

So cute! I love the 5th one down, the way she is studying the girl's face.

Sharon Ankerich said...

Love the big bows in her hair. Too fun! I miss having some one to wear all the big bows we have. I would be more than happy to send them your way for your girls.

Hugs,Jody
