We're Here!

Well, as I am typing this, most of our friends and family are asleep...it is 4:25 am (Sat) in the states and 6:25 pm (Sat) in Beijing, China.

We arrived at the airport here at 3:25pm and it took about 1 1/2 hours to make it out to our bus! Crazy!

I want to thank those friends that were praying for me. I could feel it! I had only a small bit of anxiety at the very first. The Lord kept me so busy with Jake that I did not have time to worry about the fact that we were flying so far!

If you know me at all, you know I drink DIET COKE. Preferably from the fountain...and preferably in 64 ounce servings! Well, did you know that United Airlines serves...you guessed it...PEPSI PRODCTS?!?!? I have now determined that one of the worst things that can be done to me is to put me on an 11 hour, over the ocean, getting a baby at the end flight and force me to drink Diet Not Coke! Yes, I had to drink Diet Pepsi from a can (Suzanne and MIL, you can stop laughing now!!)!!

Not much sleeping was done on the plane, so we are bedding down early tonite. We do not have any organized tours tomorrow, so we are going to sleep until we wake up, go to the grocery store, go to Hard Rock Cafe (I know, total tourists we are!) and then get ready for our tour on Monday.

By the way, today is David and mine 11th anniversary!

Love to all. Keep watching!
