Let the fun begin, we are HOME. 32 hours from when we awoke in GuangZhou, Ch*na we are back in Pennsylvania. WOW.
Our flights were okay, we started out with tickets for GuangZhou to Beijing for all of us but nothing more for the boys:( Said we had to get them in Beijing. WELLL.... as nothing can go too easy for us, we got there and after being sent to 4 different places, we finally found the right counter to get tickets for the boys and we had to upgrade to get seats together;( Was not thrilled to pay for that but it was only for me and hubby the kids were free and it got us seats together. I did not want to have my kids spread out all over the plane for a 13+ hours trip!
So from Beijing to Washington D.C. someone threw up on landing. I'll let you guess who, leave a comment and I'll tell you who got it right.
Our flight was then delayed on the runway due to storms. When we got off finally we had to go through customs and at that point our boys were U.S. Citizens- YEAH!!!!! I cried a little, hey, I was overwhelmed at that point. The customs guy took us through very fast, it might have been the mention of him stamping things May 14 and us saying "is it really May 14th still??" We had been up since 5:30 am, lost 12 hours in flight so yes, it was.
On we went to Pittsburgh after a short delay and when we hit the airport the boys said to Chloe "where's the house?" Uhh, 3 hours away? They were HUNGRY, no surprise there, so we treated them to their first American meal McD*nald's, of course, where they picked apart the chicken sandwiches and viewed them like they were gross. Amazing since these are kids who see a whole pigeon cooked up and get excited?? They are in for a rude awakening here, I already told them, no trapping the dogs or cat for supper, please.
We crawled in about 3 and Cam was up waiting, Kitty got up to say "hi" and I am still trying to convince the kids to go to bed. I'm headed for mine. They are playing, I'm running out of steam. I hear a bird singing outside my window, shut up bird, go back to bed.
All is well. We are home. We made it. God is so good.
