We are here! The donation bag was way too heavy and so was our suitcase as we tried to minimize carrying more and filling to the brim. Needless to say it was going to be $200 more and lucky for us mom had packed 3 empty duffle bags just in case. Then we were notified that we were going to have technical stop when getting ready to board in Orlando, for Dallas to Seatle. No big deal we (way out of the way to Taiwan we know) thought till our plane was really late and then they notified us while landing we were changing planes. Lucky for me this once that greg was not happy and let every flight attendant know as they quickly gathered us as we left the plane we were husstled away along with many other guest out the side of the plane down to the ground and into a van like the secret service or something. Then away we went driving really fast across all the runway ground area over to a plane on the otherside of loading. Al teh whike they said they couldnt guarantee that our bags would make it but that they would come a day late and deliver them to our room. We said with how fast they got us to the otehr plane no way they could get all of our 6 bags into that plane. I mean when we got on the new plane everyone was already boarded and buckled and as soon as we all sat and buckled they began to move to the runway and took off. All of about 15min total time! Much to our suprise we were so worrie daobu our bags and imigration lines when we arrived we didnt get Ti's ticket upstairs. ARHH... but our bags were here safe and sound! One really bad thing is I have had a Horrible horrible tooth ache the entire time. Wouldnt be my life any other way people :) We are tired but we are checked into our hotel. We like the room. We did get in right away thankfully with early check in. The staff let us know when making our reservation that they may or may not have a room available for early check in. So we knew we may be droping off our luggage and knocking on the Dias's door LOL. We are going to venture out soon and get some pictures. We have a busy day tomorrow as we head down to Tainan via the high speed rail, visit SLC from 10-1pm , then tour Tainan with this awesome taxi that Judy H put us in contact with. We know this wil be an exiting day for Landon and us. We already have that anticipation feeling as we are so anxious to get to the part of the process wehave been working and waiting towards for the last 9+ months. YEAH getting closer still LOL We ate breakfast, meet Jessica (just as sweet and nice as I thought she would be!) and now tha tGreg and Landon are taking a cat nap I am going to look for that awesome doctor that Laura told me about to help pout this tooth ache. By this morning with not so much sleep and horrible pain I was already loosing site and patience. Of course Landon turned into mr crazy with about 4 hours left of the flight , mean, not listening, hyper little boy till now whne he cried himself to slep :(. He did well most of the flights though which we were really happy with considering everything else LOL Anyhow, having a pizza night with the Dias and Nicholson families and get to meet their little girls!!! We are soooo excited of course. SORRY GUYS BUT IT WONT LET ME UPLOAD PICS NOW but Ill try agian later.

Yeah!!!!! Sounds like everything has worked out OK, so far, other than a pesky tooth ache. Praying that the doc. there will be able to help you out. Tooth aches are NO FUN!

Hey Nicole, Glad to hear that the family made it there alright. I don't know if cloves are used much for cooking/candies in Taiwan, but clove oil often feels very soothing on a toothache. In the US clove oil is sold in little bottles for candy flavoring and also in tootache kits in pharmacies.
