Summer Palace

Well we punched another night well at least I did. I think Kirk can sleep no matter where he is. I woke up at 1:00am and haven't went back to sleep yet (now 2:00pm) We went to summer palace today and had an AMAZING time. The weather was just perfect with the sun shining and very little wind. I'm really too exhausted to post much about it, but here are some pictures from the day. Hope everyone is doing well back in Canada and my American pals from DTC group :-)

We are off to the acrabts show tonight. Eventually sleep will happen - it just has too!

Hi Debbie
Sorry I didn't get back to you about the irons. I can relate to waking at 1 a.n. as that was my hour every night until we got Kimberly. We are home safely and she is now on antibiotics. Looking forward to the posts where you have pictures of Olivia in your arms.

Hi Deb

You will sleep once you get your precious Olivia ( well maybe not, but you sure will have a peaceful feeling). Keep those pictures coming!

Take Care

Looks beautiful!

Sounds like you are holding up scary well with minimal sleep. Try to bonk yourself on the head for some zzzzzs before Ms. Olivia is on the scene ;0)

Thinking of you both, I so looks forward to viewing your blog everyday and seeing your pics and finding out how much fun you guys are having, the best is yet to come!! You need to sleep though, but I know it's hard to sleep, when you got so much running through your mind. Can't wait to see the pics of the 3 of you TOGETHER!

HA HA HA - you'll sleep in 6 months if you're lucky!!! I was exactly the same - seems like I never slept from the time we left for China until 6 months later.....ahhhh but it's worth it and it will be for you too! Enjoy.
