Braving the Border

Today, we went to Sawyer's 4 month doctor's appointment. We live in mainland China and his doctor is in Hong Kong, which means we have to cross the border. We need to leave China and enter Hong Kong. Normally, we take a ferry which is easy and stress-free.  We didn't think we would make it to our appointment on time if we took the ferry, so we braved the border. Looking back, I think we were a bit crazy to go through the border, but now we have another interesting China story to add to our list. We got to the border at 8:05, we finally got through and into Hong Kong at about 9:30, eeek! It was madness. There was a lot of pushing, line cutting and even running...

On our way to the border.

 Where we were stuck.

Sawyer slept through most of it. 

See all of those people waiting in the background??

Our line. Yep, true story.

Sawyer did great with his shots and was a trooper all day. We learned that he is about 16.5 pounds and 25 inches long...that explains why my back kills after I carry the little guy around for a while ;)

After that whirlwind of a day, I am off to bed...hallelujah!
