We're Here!!!!

Well, we made it. We had a few minor hiccups on the plane ride over, but overall it was not bad. We spent the day today at the Summer Palace and The Great Wall. According to Little Swan, we have now seen the "Real" China, The Great Wall. Evidently, Beijing doesn't count. She has made a fast friend with a little girl from another family who is 7 years old. They giggled all day today while we were on the bus. She also kept going up the Great Wall today, which meant that Little Swan kept going, which also meant that Mr. J had too as well. Thank goodness that didn't mean me, too. The weather is very nice, a little warm, but we can see the sky. It really is blue here too. Last time, in July, not so much. Our guides even said we came at the best time of year to Beijing. In the evening we walked down by all the Olympic Event Stadiums. The breeze felt so good and it was just beautiful. We are very tired from our first day of big events. Only 2 days until we get Jack. We will post more soon.


  1. Y'all look so great!!! The sky is just gorgeous behind The Great Wall! Can't wait for more pics! Love you guys and know that we are praying for you!

  2. How exciting to see you making such wonderful family memories! Only 2 days - that is awesome! You're in my prayers.

  3. I am so happy for you all. I would take this journey again in a minute. I know Jack will be a blessing to your family and you guys will give Jack the greatest life imaginable. Bryce is 3 1/2 now so we will have to get the boys together to play....Bryce would love it. Know you are in our thoughts and prayers. Love all!!!......Tessa
