I'm Back!

NiHao to all my blog friends and family!  I'm back from a fantastic 2 week trip to China!  It's amazing how time flies when you're having fun...and fun I had!  I can't even begin to tell you all the things I saw, smelled, heard, touched and tasted!  It was a trip to awaken the 5 senses!  Mark and Joan, our friends in China, are great hosts and tour guides.  I greatly appreciate and love them for providing this experience for me.

I need to also thank Dan, Jill and Andy for updating my blog while I was gone.  Since Google and China aren't good friends, I can't access any blogspots, including my own.  Imagine my surprise when I read about sitting next to a terrorist, dickering with the Chinese (although most of it is true) and my fanny pack experiences!  I didn't realize I had such talent and adventures!

I can't wait to get to your blogs to read about your adventures but it may have to wait until tomrrow.  I've been up for 33 hours and my brain isn't working well.

In just a few short hours (although it didn't seem short at the time) I went from this:


to this!


I really am home!

I wanna go now! It looks like you were quite the explorer!! (maybe I'll call you Dora :) Ok sorry... Can you tell I'm with a 3 year old all day??

I'm glad you got to take the trip~! You deserve it!!

Welcome home you world traveler you!!!! I think you just may start a fanny pack craze....or not!

I loved reading about you while you were gone. Worried for a minute that we lost you on the great wall.

Try and get a little rest and then hurry up and tell us all about it!

Welcome home!! What a wonderful trip/experience for you! I have enjoyed reading about all your fun from your blog and Joans. Looks and sounds like you guys had a wonderful time. I bet Joan is having some serious Connie withdrawals now. I can't think of a better host and hostess to have for 2 weeks, I bet you were a little spoiled. So glad you got to go on this trip, you deserved it!

Well welcome home! Can't wait to hear all about your adventures...and see more pictures! I have a dear friend who has adopted little girls from China and has a foundation to help the orphanages that are full of little girls. They also help babies born with cleft palates. She has gone several times to China and has some wonderful stories.
What a great opportunity...experience of a lifetime!
