Kung Fu, Zen Buddhism, and the Thompsons???

Today we went on a tour of the Shaolin Temple.  We took a two-hour bus ride with 8 other families in our group.  Shaolin Temple is the home of Kung Fu and Zen Buddhism.  We walked through three different areas including a pagoda forest.  We thought Will Hudson would enjoy the Kung Fu show.  He did until it got a little too loud.  Since we have shown you some cute smiles, we have also included a picture of him not so happy. 

Tomorrow we will leave Zhengzhou…the capital city of the Henan province where we met our son!  We will fly to the next stop on our journey, Guangzhou to complete all of the paperwork for the US Consulate.  We probably will not blog for a day or so since we will be traveling and getting settled in.  We may just try to post a few extra pictures in between updates.  Thank you for keeping up with our journey.  We can’t wait for you to meet Will Hudson…he is a hoot!


  1. Nathan loves the sunglasses! He's asking why was he crying? AND tell Will Hudson we're coming for a visit!!! ...yo.

  2. I didn't sign up for this to cry every time I read it. Just so much good. Thanks for sharing w/us.

  3. Pulling teeth was not part of this arrangement.
