Leaving on a Jet Plane...

The day to leave is finally here... I never thought this day was going to come!

Ryan's mom, Barb, got here on Monday afternoon. A few years ago we asked her to accompany us on this adventure to China. This will be the first grandchild on Ryan's side of the family so we were so happy when she said she would love to join us.

This morning my alarm went off at 3:15. I think I got about 3 hours of sleep. I am happy with that! I was not sure if I would get any! We had a cab pick us up because I was not going to put any of our friends through having to get up that early! There were so many people at our small airport this morning that we made it to our gate just as the were calling our names for last boarding. It would not have been a good start to this trip if we would have missed our first flight! Right now we are on our first leg of this long journey from Colorado Springs to Chicago. The second leg will be 13.5 hours from Chicago direct to Beijing. Next time I post it will be from Beijing, P.R. China! ~Ronda

  4. Of course you need to start this journey tired! This is the "new mommy" syndrome - running on adrenaline! I guess you don't have to give birth to experience it!
