Papa Joe was able to come for a quick visit in October before flying back to the US. Because he'd been in Asia for around two-and-a-half weeks, we tried to have lots of things that reminded him of home. We had chili with cornbread, pork chops, cheesecake, grapefruit, but I was unsuccessful in finding diet caffeine-free Mt. Dew.
Sorry LBean, this is the best photo
you & Papa Joe!
Papa Joe & EBean
After we picked up Papa Joe from the airport we went back to the Shanghai Fabric Market to pick up the girls Halloween costumes. On Sunday we took Papa Joe and a co-worker of Jamie's from the States to Walking Street.
Unfortunately the end of Papa Joe's visit over-lapped with the start of the stomach flu being passed around our family. EBean and I did manage to take Papa Joe back the airport and we can't wait for him to come back soon!
