After coming back to the hotel to rest a bit, we went to this park nearby called People's Park. It was really pretty and there are even a bunch of carnival rides. We had our first split pants experience there. Split pants are these pants that they use on little kids. Rather than wearing diapers, the pants have a split down the center of them so if a child needs to go to the bathroom, they just go, no matter where they are. We were following this path to find a "waterfall" and as we rounded a corner, there was a mom holding her baby and he was just spraying away, right towards us. This happened to be where the waterfall, which ended up just being a trickle of water on some rocks, was. We pointed it out to Ella and took off.

This was our last day as a family of four! It is only 11 1/2 hours until we get Liana! I can't believe this day has finally come! It has always felt like a dream that might not come true but our day is finally here!! Whoa there on all the exclamation points. I'll try to calm it down. :-) Our guide is picking us up at 9 and we are supposed to meet Liana at 9:30. We found out tonight that we actually get to get her at her orphanage, which isn't what they usually do. We're really excited about this! We really wanted a chance to see where she has lived for the past 2 years. 11 1/2 hours...I better try and get some sleep!
