big bird

here's our 'ride' for the next 11 hours. thankfully, kevin had called ahead and reserved our seats, so we were in the bulk-head. nice! well, it still was a looooooong flight, but at least we had a little more leg room and no one reclining back in our laps! we saw 4 movies, ate some mildly-scary-chinese stuff and slept for a total of about 30 minutes. ouch! it was fun walking around and meeting more of the families, but the most fun part of the trip was at 5:30pm china-time; we landed! going thru customs was a breeze and our agecny's "guides" were there to meet us right away. we got on a bus and they explained what our itinerary would be for the next two days then checked us into our hotel. we've now been up for over 24 hours and of course, now that we're here, we're wide awake!

Now I know you've seen alot of stuff in all your travels...but the minute you see your baby girl...ah, I just wish I would have taken you up on the camera girl offer! I can't wait to see you two w/ her. I told Brinley and Bryson that you were on your way and that you'd soon have a baby...Brinley was real excited for you. And I sending your BLOG to Vick and Tam.

Jenny G and Flash - we are so happy you have arrived in China safely. I can't believe you are now only hours away from having Myah in your arms forever!! Thanks so much for sharing all of your beautiful stories and journeys...Myah truly is blessed to have such loving and thoughtful parents. Although, I must say...are you crazy going to PF Chang's your last night before leaving for China? No rice for me, give me a big old fat steak and potato please!! Enjoy the rest of your trip and we can't wait to welcome you and little daughter home in a few weeks!!
Love, Jan, Mike & Nathan
