I'm In China!

I'm in Beijing! I made it safe and sound, with no glitches whatsoever in travel, except for a minor "hot brake" problem on the plane in Tokyo which resolved itself quickly and then we were on our way!

Today we had a busy day! We visited Tian An Mein Square, the Forbidden City, took a stroll through Olympic Park, and visited the Juyonguan section of the Great Wall.

I'm exhausted and can't write much, so I'll just try to post some pictures.

Hope the weather doesn't get any colder!
Since you flew out of Jacksonville, you may have been on the same plane as the McClinton's (and their son). Hope your travel group is bonding, that's a good step before getting your babies.
Looking for more pictures; anyone else have blogs we can follow? We love "gotcha/forever family" day photos!!

Karen, I didn't get to talk to you much when we met at the airport for the Hilton homecoming, but know I have you in my prayers and hope you have smooth travels and a wonderful time with Kaelie!

God Bless!
