Hong Kong Saturday!

Oh man, I love this city!!!

Out hotel connects right to the subway station, so this morning we walked over and caught the train into central Hong Kong. The subway is gorgeous and so easy to use!

Now that's an Apple Store!

We then hopped on a bus and headed up to The Peak....there is a cable tram that takes you up a mountain to an area with a viewing platform of the city, and lots of shops and restaurants. We had lunch and hung out for a few hours. Jonah was pretty impressed with the views, which are amazing, even despite the cloudy conditions today. We went there on our last trip as well and had much better views, but regardless of the weather, it really is breathtaking!

Beautiful Hong Kong

The weirdest mascot in the world. It was actually a little one wanted anything to do with the "foot" other than a few kids here and there. There was one point in which it was surrounded by a group of kids who started to yell and taunt it!

Then we headed back to our hotel and let the boys swim in the pool here at our hotel. We weren't sure how Jude would react, but I'll go ahead and show you......

(Sorry for the poor quality of this video, and that it loops. I am tired of messing with it!)

Needless to say, he was MAD when we got him out!

We splurged a little bit and ordered roomservice for dinner in celebration of our last night before heading home. So, now we pack up and leave in the morning! I am dreading our 15.5 hour flight (yikes) but so looking forward to getting home and seeing my girls!!!! I can not wait to squeeze them!!

Thanks to all of you who followed along on this amazing journey to get Jude and bring him home. Thanks for your prayers, support, and encouragement along the way. This has, yet again, been a long road, but it has been a little easier to travel thanks to you!

We absolutely and completely praise God for again bringing us to this path, providing for our every need, choosing Jude as our son, and seeing us through every challenge, struggle, and moment of the past 13 months. He is so faithful and loves us so extravagantly!

Next stop....the USA!!!!!
