Our journey to Beijing...

 Diane on the flight from Dulles to Beijing
 A view of the North Pole
Our hotel room....and the bed we are both crashing into. We have now been up for 24 hours and are meeting our guide with 5 other families tomorrow morning at 8:30am for a full day of tours to the Great Walll, The Forbidden City, etc....

We had a great Chinese meal at the hotel this evening (Poly Plaza) with another family we are travelling with. They are so kind, and treated us to dinner tonight to celebrate becoming parents for the first time. I know we will enjoy their company for the next 2 weeks, and all the advice they can give us. They are adopting their second international child, and this will make child number 7 for we are in the hands of pros!!

I had more pictures, but we timed out uploading and I just don't have it in me to stay awake any longer....sweet dreams!

3 days until TATUM!!! :)
