Sight-seeing fun

 We've enjoyed another GREAT day with our Addy-Kate! She truly is coming out of her shell  more and more every day and we are beginning to see signs of a  little "stinker"  emerge. She is still all smiles and giggles though and just as sweet as sweet can be!.
 As we wait for AK's passport to be processed, we will spend the next few days sightseeing in her province. Today, we went to see the Terra Cotta Warriors.
This is a HUGE tourist attraction here in Xi'an and one of the many reasons people visit this city!
The Terra Cotta Warriors and Horses are the most significant excavations of the 20th century. 
It is a sight not to be missed by any visitor to China.
 It was an amazing sight to see and one I'm so glad we got to enjoy!
Our second stop of the day was to Huanqing Pond. This was a park filled with many natural hot springs. In ancient China, the emperor would reside here through out the cold winter months.
Addy-Kate has been so delightful on each one of these little tours. I can tell she is just taking it all in. The sights, the sounds, the people... Her world has changed so much over the last few days that I cannot even imagine what she must be thinking. 
And in another week, it's going to change all over again as we head home...
