I am still very far behind in my posting and I feel like I really need to catch up because I have some great pictures of the last few days Jeanette was visiting us and also many great photos of our amazing trip to Cambodia. I thought though I should post something from the present since everything I have been posting is about a month or so behind. Last Saturday we attended the 2nd Annual Chengdu Marine Corps Ball. It is our one chance a year in Chengdu to get gussied up. Here is a picture of us before the ball.
We went over to the Briggs house for a glass of wine before we headed to the ball. Here are some photos of a few friends of ours.
We went to the ball last year and it was kind of a snooze. This year it was a whole lot better. The Marines that are here in Chengdu right now are very involved in the community. A couple of the guys play rugby and coach soccer with Jonny and they are also very active in volunteering at Gemma's school. I think knowing the guys a lot better made all the difference in the world for a fun evening. Here are a few more pictures of our evening.
Here we are the girls with the Marines.
