Crowne Plaza Beijing

I love our room.  Really love this room.  Heather, you think my bed is amazing this one is the BOMB!  Plus, I have heard that the rest of the beds on this trip are not so great so I am loving every minute of this one.

Welcome to CHINA!! WooHoo! Enjoy!!

ooo la la! Fancy fancy! :-)

Have a GREAT time. Soak it all in. Your first trip to China goes by SO fast. The third trip... not so much. ;-)

I have a huge favor to ask of you once you get to Guangzhou. We bought a Mahjong set and there were no instructions in our box when we got home, even though they were there when we bought it. If I tell you the exact store, can you drop by and pick me up a set of instructions? I'm sure the lady will remember us. (haha) Oh yes, you can tell her that we had the two little girls and the teen. And we made a deal with her on the set for 100 yuan and we accidentially started walking out without paying. She will remember us for that! :-) If you have a chance to do this, I can tell you where the store is once you get there.

Yeah! You're there!
See the big iron bird was not so bad. And I think the lesson is to order the kids meal! Bed looks cushy. Nice water closet. What more could you ask for? Okay, other than to fast forward to hugging her ;)

Glad you had a safe trip. Enjoy the soft bed because the concrete slabs are right around the corner!
Can't wait to hear about the PHF visit.

so glad to see everyone happy in the room, you'll have to take the bed apart to see what makes it so wonderful and then recreate it! seriously, harrison looks like he aged and matured overnight. hopefully he looks the same when i see him in February.
