We made it!

Whew. That was one LOOOONNNNNGGGG flight. All I kept thinking the whole way was... HOW are we going to do this with a 17 month old?!

oh and... "my butt hurts!"

I'm having trouble uploading any pictures. It seems like the internet connection is quite slow. Hopefully I get the matter resolved somehow. But, right now... I can barely spell my name, never mind figure out how to upload pictures more efficiently.

Anyway, just wanted to write a quick post to let you know we made it safe. Now we are going to find something to do to keep us awake for the next 5 hours or so. Today is the last day of the Lantern Festival so there will be celebrations in the street tonight. Looking forward to seeing that... if we can stay awake that long.

OH... one more thing....

They served burritos on the plane halfway though the trip. Burritos?????


  1. Burritos???? Are you sure you went to China?! Better double check!

  2. One more thing...we found pix VERY slow to load while there, too. It helped to only try one at a time, but still. Ask it to load and then go and get coffee and then come back and it MIGHT be ready by then!

  3. deb- if you want to email your posts to me i'll load em--:)

    and just don't even think about the flight home right now- i had 2 bad ones and 1 great one-- it can go either way- and ain't nothin' wrong with breakin' out the benadryl!

  4. Lantern festival = not hard to stay awake, it will be too LOUD to sleep! lol Enjoy all the fireworks and firecrackers. It's a very auspicious day to arrive in China! Best wishes.

  5. Glad to hear that you made it there safely.
    Burritos??...interesting. :-)

    Enjoy the Lantern Festival. Can't wait to see

  6. YEAH!! I thought of you ALL. NIGHT. Every time I looked at the clock I thought, wow.. they still have x # of hours left on the flight. :-) Can't wait to hear all about it! I think the entire time you are gone, every time I look at the clock I will try to determine what time it is there & wonder what exactly you are doing.

  7. Oh.. and burritos?? Really? Were they as good as Moe's?
