Hong Kong and Avery's birthday!

Yesterday was a very LONG day (and Avery's 5th birthday)! First, we stayed up until 1:30AM packing Monday night and then woke up at 5:15AM to start our day. Our flight left DFW at 8:50AM. We arrived in San Francisco, had a 3 hour layover and then left for Hong Kong at 1:30PM (California time)... still May 3rd. We arrived in Hong Kong at 7PM, May 4th!
Due to an "unexpected" head wind, our flight lasted a little longer than scheduled...15 hours! As you can imagine, that is a very long time to be on a plane (that's a long time to do anything)! After watching a few movies, a couple naps, lunch, etc... we were only half way finished with our flight!
We can't say enough about our airline "Cathay Pacific". They were very professional and it was the best service we've ever had on a flight...ever. They were awesome with the girls, had tons of in flight entertainment including 100's of movies, TV shows, games, etc. all "on demand".
By the time we got to our hotel at Hong Kong Disney we were wiped out and ready for sleep. The time difference is 13 hrs (We are ahead of you all in Dallas). So it's now 7AM in Hong Kong and we are getting ready to set out for HK Disneyland. We'll post some pics of that later, Only 3 more days till we meet our baby girl!
