Made it to Guangzhou

We made it safely & smoothly to Guangzhou.  It seems we have brought the bug with us though.  My sweet little Jeb is running fever now :(.  This could be tricky as he really needs his mama when he is sick.  He is sleeping now.  We'll see how tomorrow goes.  Prayers appreciated... Loden & I no longer have fever, but still have the head cold.  We just aren't 100%.  Naomi on the other hand, is WIDE open! :)  She is in to everything & wants to eat everything (ALL the time :) She's a MESS!  The good news is ... She sleeps a lot too!! :)) lol...... She slept the entire flight to Guangzhou.  She sleeps all night long too.  She's really starting to warm up to the boys a lot.  She's letting them hold her & play with her.  They feel so much better about things now.

                                                        Just a few pics of our travel day.

On the bus headed to the airport

Waiting to board the plane.... How cute are they?!

Ready to go!

And AS SOON as we took off until we landed.... this was her :))

And she livened up on the bus ride to the hotel.

We met our new guide Jocelyn & she is wonderful!!! I can already tell Guangzhou is going to be so much better.  She had an itinerary typed up for us with local restaurants listed & how far the walk, drive, etc. is. Tomorrow we will take Naomi for a medical exam.  Then later in the week we will go out for a group dinner one night, to the Pearl Market & on a Pearl River Cruise one night.  Our hotel is SUPER nice.  Almost too nice for 4 kiddos! lol  It has a Starbucks in it & McDonald's across the street, so we're all good :)  Thanks again for the thoughts & prayers.  We are in the home stretch now! One week to go!!
