Once a year and twice sometimes (at Chinese New Year time too) our little group of 7 families that all traveled together to China to get our daughters reunion in the late summer. This year, we met again in Gulf Shores at one of the families homes. They so graciously let us have it there every year and we all have a great time swimming and eating.
Order of the girls on the couch: Tori and Kati (twins, the oldest), Ashley, Ella, Annabella, Jade, Josie (the youngest).
For the first time this year the girls really played together, interacted. Really I guess us adults expect them to love eachother, they did live together the first 9 months of their lives int he same room! But since they only see one another twice a year, they are really like strangers. This year afew remembered the other ones from February when we saw the group for the CNY parade and they all got along well.
The jones family have a red couch so we recreate our famous 'red couch' picture with the girls. One family did not get to attend this year, they live far away in the NE, they were missed!
