You know it is time to come home when...

...you find yourself craving ANY uncooked fruits and vegetables, you want so badly to drink water out of the tap, and you are really tired of being stared at in public.

Oh, and about to go crazy from being photographed too ~ perhaps it is because we had two children on this trip? By the last full day in Beijing I had decided that I was going to make a statement of my frustration and here are some of the pictures that reflect it...


Why do I have pictures of random Chinese men holding cameras (either reviewing pictures in the screen or still holding the camera up)? Uh, that would be because I decided that turn about is fair play ~ take a picture of me and my family, I'll take a picture of you...

Yeah, it was so time to come back to the states!

**See post below for highlights of our last day in China. Summary of our trip home and our amazing homecoming crowd coming soon!

Wow, I had no idea! Now I have a better idea what to expect when we travel. Will they take as many pix of us since we will only have 1 child with us probably?

Next time take their camera from them and offer to take their picture with their own camera, it will freak them out, how do I know, Dan did it in the summer palace, they didn't know what to do. I wish I would have took a picture of him doing it. It was really funny!

Now you know how it feels to be hounded by papparazi! I guess we need to refer to you from now on as Ianisti? That makes me belly laugh :) We're so glad you're home! Love you lots! Jen and the Brayley boys

That's funny. Did they know you were taking pictures of them? I'm jealous of some of those lenses! Goodness. Those people were out taking pictures for the heck of it? Hope you're doing well at home today as a Mommy of 2.
