Ben's Birthday!

Since we were in Shanghai, we decided to celebrate Ben's birthday early! We had a really yummy cake we bought around the corner, and gave Ben his present... which was to fly to China to visit him! :D Hope he had a good one... the big 1 4!

Happy Birthday Ben!

The Lion Forest

The Lion Forest was extremely awesome! It's the home of a government official back in the day, and he had stones and rocks brought it that were formed into different shapes, with different caves and tunnels to walk through. Ben got lost while we were there and Michael had to go back and look for him! :D It was incredible!

Tiger Hill

Tiger Hill is where one of the Chinese Emperor was buried. Kinda like the Chinese "Leaning Tower of Pisa". They believe the tower will fall to the ground in a decade or two. Still pretty cool though!

The Humble Administrator's Garden

I can't believe this was someone's garden! It was HUGE!!! Absolutely gorgeous... but HUGE! Michael got some crazy ideas as to how he wants our house built.... :D

West Lake

We also went to the West Lake.  It was absolutely incredibly walking through it at night after a huge meal.  The next day, we went and got a ride in one of the hand rowed boats and took it around the entire lake!
