Final Day in Beijing & Flight to Nanchang

Our last day in Beijing started out pretty rainy so we headed to the Capitol Museum in the morning and Tienanmen Square in the afternoon. Our last night as a family of 2 was spent out for a great Chinese meal shared with our travel group & capped off with the Acrobat show. We were all pretty relaxed, but had the next day's events weighing heavily on our minds.

I remember getting back to hotel & packing & re-packing to make sure we had all of the right items in our carry on as we were only going to have an hour or two after landing until we met the babies. I didn't know how much to trust the ability of the national Chinese airlines to get our checked luggage there so we had to ensure that all of our gifts, cameras, bottle & clothes for Maddy, diapers, etc. came with us on the plane. A few of our group members (including us) still had at least one bag that was overweight. Thanks to our fast talking guide we were able to get these pushed through.

This was one of the pieces on display at the mueseum

Here were the couples in our group having a dinner out for the last time as a family of two

Here are the nervous dads pacing as we waited for the flight to Nanchang, looking back it was a little like they were outside a delivery room

Here we are ready to board the plane for our life changing moment

You photo gave me a flashback of waiting for our flight to Nanchang. I thought I was going to throw up from the excitement. Hee hee. And from the other post I agree that it really could take 2 days to do the summer palace.

YAY! So excited for you as you walk down memory lane. Isn't this super fun? I also remember little details that I had forgotten about, so I think it's a good idea to do these posts.
