Another great day!

This is when Samuel saw pics of Alex. Thanks Tina!
Jim going down the desert mountain in NT.

This is the second day we visited Samuel.


Jim climbing the desert mountain.




I'm not the best with adding pics but I hope this helps those of you who want pics.
Okay, I just wanted to update. I forgot to mention how great NT was. Not only is there a beautiful beach, but we also visited a desert like area and saw mountains. You should have seen Jim "skiing" down the desert mountains. I was so afraid he would get down there and not be able to get back. The Cham towers are great. Also if any of you are buying things from your childs province that is the place to get them.
On to more. Samuel didn't want to sleep last night. So I started rocking him and singing hymns. Guess what, he was out in just a little while. Mike, that is another plug for praise and worship. =)
Anyway, he slept like a dream last night. We woke up this morning and went to breakfast and then hit the streets. We walked all over Saigon. Samuel is such a trooper that he did not fuss. We found this great restraunt called Au Pac over by the Catherdral. Then it started to rain so we headed back for the hotel. We got in and rested for a little while then the Lee's came to visit with Sang(Thomas) and we went to the zoo. The outing was fun. The boys weren't to interested but it was nice to be out. We were so had by the cab driver going over. He wouldn't turn on the meter. We got there and ended up paying 40.000 dong. On the way back the driver used the meter and it was only 15.000. Be sure to use the meter or get out. I think we will just hang out for the rest of the day. I really want to go get a massage tonight. Plus there is still shopping to do.

I am so happy for you guys! You are sooooooo lucky you got to see Ninh Thuan and are getting time in HCMC. You are so blessed to not be getting rushed around by the staff. Praying the rest of your trip is as wonderful!

Love the pictures! It sounds like things are going well. Sledding down sand dunes is fun - climbing back up, not so fun! It really sounds like a beautiful place. I hope the rest of your trip goes smoothly!
