Traveling Day

We could barely stay awake until 8 last night since we are 12 hours ahead now and wondered how long we would be able to sleep.
Scott and I slept pretty sound until 2 and then off and on until 5:30.
We were down for breakfast by 6:30... one of the best parts of adoption {breakfast buffet in a 5 star hotel} YUM!!!

We had just a little time to spare so we hung out in the lobby people watching, took a walk, and then back to room for coloring and playing.

Our guide Helen picked us about 11:30 to head to train station bound for Shijiazhuang, Hebei... one and a half hour bullet train ride.
The train was very pleasant and in no time we arrived and headed to our second hotel.

We checked in and Helen took us to a mall connected to our hotel for dinner... Pizza Hut. :)
Tonight is HollyMei's last night in the orphanage... tomorrow is her Forever!!!
Praise The Lord, it is almost HollyMei Day!!!
