The Adventure Has Started......................

Well our adventure started Thursday morning at 5:30 when we got to the airport and they said our flight was delayed and we wouldn't be making our connecting flight to Beijing from San Fransisco. Say What..................This mama was like we have to get to Beijing we our adopting and have appointments. So United got us on another flight to LAX and then on Air China to Beijing. Yeah!!!!!!!!! Well let me tell you that the LAX airport was CRAZY!!!!!!! Joe and I were running like we were on the Amazing raise to make our Beijing flight. LOL!!!! All is good and we made it to Beijing. We are surrounded by precious adopted families that we are traveling with. Oh, and I was so freaked about the flight but it honestly was not a bad flight. I just tried to rest because I knew knew we would be busy in China. :) We only took a couple pics but today we our touring Beijing and Sunday we get to meet our precious Mia. Oh, and the Beijing airport was nice and easy to get around way easier than LAX.
