Hello Hong Kong!

Hello from Hong Kong!
We had a great time on the airplane! My kids love to fly. How can they be related to me? LOL Ava loved the turbulence, she was disappointed when it stopped! And it was really bad turbulence for about three hours, right when we were getting close to the end. I mean the kind of turbulence that makes you look around for a flight attendant to see if they look nervous too. I'm determined NOT to pass my fear of flying to my kids. I'm sure they were not aware of my white knuckles. Ava watched "Chicken Little" about 4 times. Jake watched "Iron Man"- Melanie- your favorite! Ava made friends all over the plane. We had bulkheads, it was great. Every time Jake saw a little Chinese girl he said "Mom she reminds me of Tian Tian". We are all exhausted but happy to be here. Our guide Jack took us to the hotel and gave us a lot of terrific information on the area, all the inside tips. He made the kids laugh so hard when he called Hong Kong Island "The Concrete Jungle". Ava was in hysterics, she was looking for monkeys! I can't even say concrete jungle without everyone laughing hysterically. The hotel is beautiful, we're at the Shangri-La in Kowloon. We are ordered room service and will go to bed soon, bye for now!
