So Far So Good

Our first day of travel is almost over and we are just hanging out in our hotel room in Los Angeles. Since we live almost exactly in the middle of the country, Allie thought it would be a little easier if we broke up the trip some by staying a night in L.A. We left our house at 9:30 a.m. and didn't get to our hotel room until after 4 p.m.Pacific time. Seven hours of travel down!

Right now we are excited and would have loved to have just kept going but I'm sure this will help with exhaustion in the long run. And since my dad lives out here, it will be nice to see him & my step mom when we return to LAX, WITH KAYLI!

The photo above doesn't show it but Emily has been super excited all day. We all are! I can't believe we are finally leaving for China tomorrow. The next time I post will be from Beijing!!!!!

You don't have to publish this comment.

I wanted you to know that I had a friend that recently traveled to China and she had to use another travel website because Blogger was blocked then....it might not be now but I would hate for you to get over there and not be able to journal your journey. I am SO SORRY I didn't think about this before today. She used Baby Jellybeans. I used with with Max and it is real easy! I hope you get this in time to atleast check it out.

By the time you read this, God willing, you will be in China! How exciting that must be - so many incredible new experiences one after another. Just imagining how it feels takes my breath away. But no doubt, the most breath-taking moment will be seeing KayLi "up close and personal"... when you finally greet the newest addition to your family after a VERY long gestation! :) We are praying throughout your journey and look forward to your return home soon!

Peace, joy, & love in His name~
