We're in CHINA!!!

Finally... exactly 26 hours from when we pulled out of our driveway.... we're in CHINA!  We made it fine on the long 14 hour flight to Beijing.  The boys did great!  They slept a lot. We had an hour & a half bus ride after that to the hotel, and then braved our first Chinese meal across the street where no one in the whole restaurant spoke English at all!  It was quite the experience. We are all very tired (and some of us a little grouchy :), so we are about to get settled in for the night.  Hopefully we'll wake up feeling better in the morning.  We have a long day of touring Beijing tomorrow. 4 more sleeps till Naomi!!!
Here are the boys hanging out in the Chicago airport
