Well we made it to Dubai!! It was a loooong journey but we are so happy to be on the ground and in our room at the Sheraton. The flight from Houston to Dubai on Emirates was long but truly not so bad. We each had our own little TV and lots of movies, tv shows, and music to choose from. I ended up wathching for 4 movies in all!!

I think God was giving us a taste for what is to come on our return flights b/c there were 3 young children on our single row. The little boy next to me cried off and on for the first 4 hours or so of hte trip...not much sleeping going on but am thankful the movies kept me occupied. I highly recommend flying Emirates for those of you who are about to travel. It is very spacious and can't beat all of the entertainment.

We got to our hotel around 9pmish and ate at the Grill House ok...we are so exhausted and looking forward to a shower and sleeping in. We plan to just veg tomorrow at he pool and maybe check out the spa here.

It is a new experience for us being in the minority both on the flight and now here in Dubai. A great lesson I think for us as we are soon to have Silas T in our arms.

We miss you all. Olivia and Sydney we love you so much and of course talked about you non-stop over dinner. We love you!!
