We made it!

Well, it took like 30 hours, but we’re here in our hotel room on practically as close to the other side of the world as you can get! I have to say, Ava did great! We did walk the aisles but she was a real trooper. The New York to Bankok leg was just over 17 hours, but we all lived through it.

We will meet Binh on Friday. (It’s Wednesday night here.) So tomorrow, we’ll have a chance to adjust a little and we may try to find the zoo. We’ve heard a lot of families say they went there and enjoyed it.

So, we’ll just be waiting for Friday to get here. We’re going to try to enjoy and soak in each moment, though.

I’ll keep you updated as best I can.

    PTL….(praise the lord) you made it. I have to say, I was a nervous wreck the entire time. I can’t imagine 30 hours on a plane. I actually can’t imagine 30 hours in any place, well, except for maybe PF Chang. Anywhew…..email us if you can. I can’t wait until you get to meet him. Not to mention that I will be one of the FIRST TO MEET HIM!!!!!!!!!!!! (out of those not in the Boston area of course). Well, be safe. I can’t believe Ava’s already a world traveler. We’ll keep praying for you until you get back!!!

    So happy things went well! I’m glad you can be thinking about enjoying things like the zoo! Yay Ava!

    We let the dog’s out today (3/26) and yesterday in the middle of the day. Yesterday Luke wanted to take off his coat and play. He asked, “where’s Ava?” Yes, he said her name Char! (The first “a” sounded like “ah” but we’ll take it!)

    Love you guys. Please keep updating your blog and include PICTURES!!! if you can. We can’t wait for Friday either!

    Oh wonderful. You made it safe and sound. Glad to hear Ava did so well. I know how stressful it can be traveling with little ones.

    Hi Kids, Taking time out of sorting through things getting ready to pack for In. and thought I surely have time to check on my kids. Was so glad evrything went well and “Little Ava” was fine. Know she and her Momma also loved the zoo. Got to love animals if you’re around Char. Could put in something about Ashley but since everyone reads this and doesn’t know him I’ll be nice. He is a wonderful son-in-law and Daddy.I am so excited to see you all and everytime a see little ones I just want to cry knowing that their will be 2 that I will have but won’t get to see very often. Oh well, I’m sure I can teach them to be spoiled even at a distance. Love you all, Mommy
