What I wouldn't pay for Dorothy's ruby slipper's right now. This is my last post from China, I would love to be able to click my heels together and chant, " There is no place like home" and magically be there with my entire family. Tomorrow is the big travel day. I am trying not to worry about how it will all play out. I am definitely over traveling. I am dreaming of being home with all my kids and getting back to our normal routine. Last night at dinner the 3 of us made a list of the things we missed the most about home. Of course our little kids topped the list by far, but I am amazed at the fact that I miss being able to do laundry and dishes. We really had a great time in China. I was pretty surprised at how great the trip was. I do have to admit that Hong Kong was a bit much for all of us, after such a long trip. We really enjoyed all of our main China stops, much more than HK. Although HK has a ton to see and do it is really more of a melting pot with a very fast pace. We really enjoyed the China culture a lot more. We tried to have a pretty mellow day, we went to a beautiful park, Mina loved it. She is going to have such a great time back home. It is so fun to watch her excitement when she sees new things. In the afternoon we took the Star Ferry over to Hong Kong Island, I just can't believe how huge this place is. It is so different here. And I just couldn't leave without giving y'all a photo of the China bathrooms... they are referred to as "squatties" they are the reason for my self induced dehydration in China. I am sure to only drink liquids when we will be close to the hotel. I am proud to say that for 14 days I have been able to successfully avoid this! ( hopefully i will make it through the airport experience tomorrow). Good night for now. Thank everyone for your support and prayers. Please keep them up for tomorrow, as we will have a very long travel day. Can't wait to post from home.
(by the way, my email is not working in HK, but I just had to tell "E" great news girl on both!! Can't wait to hear all the details) & "H" get ready for a long & loud ride home from the airport, this girl has never seen a carseat, hates being buckle in, and is very crabby when she is tired. I am going to owe you big- I can feel it.
