Most people leave on a jet plane, not this family. Tonight we’re boarding the overnight train to Xining for our family vacation and excitement is at an all time high (we’ve been tearing down rings for weeks, each ring representing one day closer to our family vay-cay, each time we tore down a ring we did a dance/song…. So yeah, we’re pretty pumped). For our travel there we got 4 soft sleeper tickets, which are all in the same train compartment (a small room with a door). It will be a fun experience and we’ll try to capture it with pictures and video. Heather and I are slightly worried about the kids sleeping well, but we’ll see how it goes.
Once we get home from our trip it will be in no time at all before many of our friends and family will be getting back (as well as some new friends). Our new semester of school also starts only a couple of weeks after we return. It will fun to get back into our family routine.
