Hooray!!!! Today we had our Visa appt. Everything went great! Originally we had been told last week that we would not receive Max's Visa until Wednesday, the 27th. Well, that posed a problem because our plane tickets have us leaving on the night of the 26th!!! We explained to them the problem, and that we had been told when we made our travel arrangements that we would be good to go. The staff at the Embassy told us they would try their best, but not to expect to leave the country until Thursday the 28th!!! Well, we've been praying like crazy that everything would come together, and sure enough....God provided!!!! We were told Max's Visa would for sure be ready at 3pm on Tuesday, giving us plenty of time to get the airport for our flight! Stephen and I could not wipe the smiles off our faces! We've had a blast here in Thailand, but we're so pumped to get our little man back home to his very own house!!!
After the Embassy, we did a little shopping for some Thai souvenirs and boy did we find all kinds of good stuff! Also, we went to this HUGE gem store. Thailand is famous for their rubies and sapphires. Holy cow, they had some crazy expensive jewelry!!! But, for the most part, things were super reasonably priced. Max and Daddy bought Mommy a beautiful necklace with Max's birthstone!!!
After our exciting day out, we hit the pool. It was HOT today! Max is really becoming a fish! Not sure what the plan is for tomorrow. But, we're looking forward to our three day weekend here in Bangkok before heading home next week!!!!
