West Lake

We arrived safely in Shanghai and were picked up by a driver recommended by the hospital for the three-hour drive to Hangzhou. In order to allow for any missed flights, we planned to start trying for flights on April 19th, and since we made the first one we arrived April 20th but are not due to check in to the hospital until April 23rd. So we arranged to stay a few nights in the area of West Lake in order to get over our jet lag and do a little sightseeing.

It has been a long few days with spotty sleep at best, so in lieu of writing a post, I thought I would just link to some pictures of the last two days. I have provided captions to give you an idea of what you are looking at. Despite our lack of sleep, we have been enjoying West Lake. Take a look!

Erin, I'm so excited for you and Trevor and Fletch. I will pray for you while there. Of course it does sound like you to be in 1st class with Dad and Fletchie in coach. With that I want to say Trevor your great!! Don't let Erin tell you different. Love you all. Beth

Hi Erin! We missed you at BSF today (I promise not to state that every week...). I'm so glad you all made it and that you got to ride 1st class. Your hubby is a gem! When I started reading your description of the meal, I thought you were going to follow up by saying that you had one last super meal in the states before heading out. Who knew they served that kind of food on airplanes?!? I guess those who fly 1st class! :-) It's great that you've had a couple days to regroup and sight-see a bit. Love the photos! All the best, Stephanie

I love those pictures especially the one where you tried to keep him up but he fell asleep. That was too funny. Good luck in China. I hope all goes well. You're in my prayers.

I like that your mom likes weird trees. That made me smile.
Good to hear from you all. Hugs to Fletch!

We get the same thing wherever we go. They all say "waw waw! (baby)" and want to touch her. It's hilarious.

Can't wait to hear more! Loved your slideshow--what an awesome cultural experience for all of you--a little gift courtesy of Fletcher.
