It's 12am and we are finally at the Hotel. We are all so glad that loooong plane ride is over.

The boys are all loving the food at the breakfast buffet. I really think they are losing money on us.

Curran playing in the big playpen with Grace at the White Swan Hotel's playroom

I think the boys actually had more fun than Grace

Grace is still on U.S. time

Eamon and Hadyn doing some window shopping. They have looked at all the cool swords and are planning to buy one.

This pink bowl was suppossed to be for washing out Hope's bottles at the hotel.

Grace loves her new hat

She really loves it

The Jade Market

There are blocks and blocks of people selling jade

We drew a big crowd for this picture and Grace couldn't help herself, so she had to stick out her tongue. NICE!!!

We made her stop

Walking in the shopping district

We bought two comforters at Carre Four for the boys to sleep on at the hotel and pushed them around in the stroller all day. We got some strange looks!!

SO glad to see you made it! Miyah just asked last night if we could go to China again sometime. Pat said yes and she said, "Tonight?" If only we could be there with you! Can't wait to see Hope!

Hi! I just had to come say hello even though you don't know me. I saw your post on the Heritage group and decided to check your blog. Then I had to come say hi because you have such great links!!

Praying that your meeting with your new daughter will go well,
