We LOVE The Garden Hotel!!!!!

Wow! We made it to our hotel where we will be for the rest of our time here.....it is AMAZING!!!!! So much more than we expected!!! We rode the train from HK to Guangzhou....now we are here and we are SO excited!!! It's so surreal to be in Kaylee's province and to think that we are only hours from where her orphanage is!

On the train playing cards :)  We got to see a lot of China on our way from HK - so amazing to see!

Here is where our kids will sleep

Our room - with a crib in it for Kaylee :)

An office/work out area!


Walk in closet area


Toilet room

The hotel even left a gift in Kaylee Grace's crib for her!!!
We had a meeting with our guide and our travel group where we went over our schedule for the next two weeks and all the paperwork details...and now we will figure out something for dinner. We will meet in the lobby tomorrow afternoon (2:00 PM Monday China time, 10:00 PM Sunday CA time). We will head to the Civil Affairs office with our group (5 families) and we will each get our children! We will have a chance to ask a few questions to Kaylee's orphanage staff, fill out some paper work and then go to the super market to get the formula that she is used to drinking, more diapers, etc. Then we will be back at our hotel around 6:00 PM China time / 2:00 AM CA time).....so sometime that evening we will post all about our day!

We are really excited for our day tomorrow! We will have dinner tonight for the last time as a family of 5!!!! We are thankful for HIS peace over both us and Kaylee :)
