Getting ready for Maimie
The boys fell asleep yesterday on the ride from the airport to the hotel. They were so beat! Our guide, Echo, was amazing. She was so friendly and efficient. It was nice to be in such good hands. She even went to get us some pizza hut pizza for supper when we were too tired to walk to find it. The boys slept through supper despite our failed attempt to sit them up and force them to eat. Mikaela and I ate, showered, and went straight to bed at 7:30pm. We all got a much better night's sleep and everyone was up by 5:ooam or so. Our hotel serves breakfast in a large dining room. They had so many things to choose from. Salads, fruits, rolls, muffins, bacon, sausage, congee, noodles, potato patties, rice flour pancakes with pork, spring rolls, and cool juice. We all drank a ton, so happy to have something other than room temperature bottled water. The boys grabbed chopsticks and dug right in. Mikaela, Steve, and I opted for a fork and decided chinese food tastes great that way too. A large table near us had 4 or 5 adoptive Dutch families and their beautiful babies. It seemed so removed from us. But I guess tomorrow we will be the main attraction struggling with our little one at the table. And that brings me to our photo. It was so odd to walk into our hotel yesterday and see a beautiful little pink crib with pink pillow and blanket. We can't believe our day is finally here. It is about 9:30am here and we meet Maimie around 3:00pm. The kids are wild and need to get out of our rooms, so we are heading out to a park for awhile.
