Hong Kong!!

Well, we made it to Hong Kong after a day long day of traveling. All 3 of us are pretty tired and getting very silly. We are at the Regal Kowloon and went for a little walk around tonight. There is so much going on even here in this little block!! I think there was a 7-11 on every corner. There were a few Starbucs and an Outback. Feels like home. L cracked me up though. While we were walking it kept going "ewwwwwwwwwwwww" it smells like turd, then his very next step he'd say "oh, now it smells like sweet tarts" and then on the next step he'd say "nope, now its turd again." I tried to warn him that the smells would be different here.

Poor J had a rough trip over. I think she got sick once and her head was killing her. Plus we weren't able to sit together on the plane. I'm hoping we can when we fly to Guangzhou and then back home. She cracked me up on the train over from the airport. She said that she has to keep reminding herself that in less than a week we'll be 4 instead of just 3! :) J is a trooper and I just love her to death!!

L slept a lot on the plane. Not only that but he slept ON ME! He would put his pillow on my shoulder and lay his head down and sleep. At one point he even drooled on me! yuck! I really didn't mind though - he's 15 so when I get a cuddle like that I grab it! Right now he's watching tv and about asleep. It's almost 11 at night here so I'm going to sign off. Tomorrow we'll check out the weather and if it looks good we'll head over to Guangzhou and check that amusement park.

Okay, going to try this again, made a bunch of typos on the first two posts, so I am going to give it another shot...

Oh honey, I have been excitedly waiting your post! Thanks for the update. Glad you made it over safely and you just about cracked me up with the bit about "L" saying it smelled like turds, then sweetarts (lol). If you get to go past the Holiday Inn Shifu in Guangzhou, be sure to hold your breath. It has a putrid smell that will just about gag you. They are cooking something stinky on the street close to it.

Just think in less than a week, you will have a daughter! I am waiting by the computer for more updates. Love you guys and hope "J" is feeling better now.

Hugs,
Jonni

YAY! You are there. :) I can not wait to see all the updates and follow your trip. Have a great time, and I'm rolling about the smells "L" is experiencing. They get ever so interesting sometimes.
