On Sunday, 6 families from our group traveled to Mount Lushan which is part of a National Park in Jiangxi Province. It is also Global Geopark and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It was a 2-3 hour drive (one way) and was honestly a grueling day for the 3 of us. I'm glad we went since it was likely a once in a life time opportunity. We loved seeing the natural beauty of the park, but could have done without the harrowing bus ride over bumpy roads. We were sitting in the back of the bus and every time we hit a bump - which happened maybe a hundred times - we would fly up into the air. I was holding Nat with a death grip the whole time.
Also, I carried Natalie up and down several hills. She weighs just under 20 pounds, but after holding her from 8:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. it felt like she weighed 100. Yesterday was I-want-my-Mama-Day and she would cry unless I was holding her. Today thankfully she is back to being a Daddy and Mama's girl.
