I Don't Care if it Takes All Night to Get There, I'm Going to the Top!

So those were Morgan's words as we drove to the Great Wall this morning, and while it about killed the adults in the group : ) we made it ALL the way to the top of the Great wall. As you can see from the pictures it is QUITE the hike to the top but he....I mean we were determined to get there!

We are doing well, a bit tired as you might imagine (both from the travel yesterday and our quite ambitious touring itinerary for today). Today we made it to the Wall, Tianaman square, the site of the Beijing 2008 Olympics, the Forbidden City, and the Summer Palace. Fortunately we are back in the room early this evening so we're going to kick back and relax a little and try to get to bed before midnight tonight (as opposed to last night). We're also hoping that we can sleep in a little longer in the morning, as both of us were up at 5 am and couldn't sleep. In the pix below you'll see the countdown to the Olympics (kind of cool because we have the same pic from 2 years ago when we adopted Rylee), Morgan is still quite a lady's man with the women, a pic of the arena where the opening ceremonies will be held, and Tianaman Square. As you can likely tell from the pix, it was MIGHTY brisk out there today.

At any rate we are doing fine and ready to board our flight in the morning down to the province where Ryan is at. Doesn't seem possible that we are now less than 24 hours from getting him.

We'll write more tomorrow night and obviously send some pix. As for now, good night from Beijing.

P.S. Darcy, when you read this, log onto IM. We will leave the internet connected and hopefully when you log in we'll hear you. We miss you!
