and we made it...

We logged in over 29 hours of airport/plane time - 
either checking in, hanging out or sitting 
for hours...
now I'm sitting with my feet up 
cause my ankles are so swollen from air travel -
they remind me of my swollen feet when I was
9 months pregnant with Kenzie! 
See weight gain and water retention happens with adoption too. (tee!hee!)


Our flights were pretty uneventful, thankfully!
For a while in Dallas we thought we might have to 
switch planes do to maintenance issues -
a drawer in cabin had a screw loose. 
Thankfully 1.5 later - we were off and in the air!

After sitting next to a young lady for 19 hours 
we finally talked a bit and found out that she
owns a restaurant in our home town! 
New friend!


Now we are listening to fireworks that have been going off for 30 minutes -
and are still going strong... 
not sure what the party is about - 
maybe all of Zhengzhou is as excited as we are that we will be holding our boys 
at 10:30am tomorrow morning.
(8:30pm Sunday evening - for y'all back home)
Let's get this party started!!!!

Congratulations! One step closer! I am guessing that the fireworks have something to do with the continued Chinese New year celebrations. ..they seem to keep partying forever!
