We're Here!

We left our house at 5 a.m. on Thursday a.m. with our first flight being at 8. 28 hours (I think I did the math right) and we just got checked in. Dabnabbit that flight from Detroit to Tokyo was long - especially with a wiggly, squiggly dumpling.

Off to bed for us because we are up and out early tomorrow morning to see lots of things in Beijing!

So glad you updated to let us know your arrived safely. Have been thinking of you often.

Can't wait to see pictures of all your sightseeings, but really can't wait to see Rebecca.

God Bless
