Hong Kong

We made it to Hong Kong last night after traveling all day. Needless to say, we are tired and are trying to figure out what day of the week and what time it is both here and at home. :-) We flew to Chicago from Cincinnati, had a 4 hour layover, and then took our flight on Cathay Pacific for over 15 hours to Hong Kong. Our flight was good and flying on Cathay was very nice. The meals were good and we had a huge selection of movies and tv shows to choose from.
We wish we could see more of Hong Kong because it looks like a very fun city. We are about to fly to Xi'an in a couple of hours. We have met two adoptive families already who were both on our flight from Chicago. One of the families is from Indy and she and I are on a Facebook group together, so it was nice to meet her in person. The other family is from Wisconsin. We are all excited and so thankful to finally be here.
We were able to Skype this morning with the kids and they are having lots of fun with their grandparents. Here are a few photos to share for now. We should have a lot more once we get settled in Xi'an and we start touring ... We are really excited to see the terra cotta warriors. And ... we only have a couple more days until we get to hold Eli in our arms for the first time!
Our last photo as a family of 5!
