Pictures of Day 1 in China

Corbin very excited to get on the last plane to China. The plane he is holding has gone EVERYWHERE with us.

This was in the Jade factory. Amazing to see them carve the jade by hand. (Yes, Amy there is jade here)

Look, Allison got on three planes and she is ALIVE to tell about it. This is her about to climb the Great Wall. Brian was pumped to be at the Great Wall. It was 19 degrees, I wasn't quite excited.

This was on the side of a building at the great wall, funny...

This was a VERY SHORT break he allowed me to take. Oh my word, it was rough climbing. Three of us, I won't say which three didn't make it very far. BUT, we did climb the Great Wall and we took pics!!!

The beginning...

My beautiful girls...

Some sweet person that was not Asian or American took our "portrait" lol...This one is for you Mom!

These to fellows are with US!!! Our guide George and Brian...

So these are the two that climbed a LOOOOONG way up the great wall. I took this picture sitting at a table with my water lol... Look how proud they were to make it. I just can't explain how difficult the climb is.

Sorry we couldn't use flash, but this is a young lady above several chairs..she was amazing.

Another young lady flying through the air on a trapeze with no safety belt. The people in this show were really awesome.
OK, we fly to Zhengzhou at 1030 this morning. We get our babies TOMORROW!!! Please pray for us and them as we travel there. Prepare their hearts to leave everything they have ever known. We are headed to find a China WalMart and McDonalds. Yes, McDonalds is what we are hunting for. Us American gals need some fries. I love you all to bits. Please kiss my William
