We rounded out that day by spending time with our friend "Mr. Joey", who cut Emma and Caleb's hair, and then a quiet evening back at the Ronald McDonald house. This was the one night that Elijah slept pretty well. :)
The next morning we met up with my friend Margaret for breakfast. We had such a lovely time with her! And with her counsel, we were able to board the cross town bus and head toward the American Museum of Natural History. (I normally walk across town, but as I mentioned, it was much colder this time!)
We rode the bus back across town, where we stopped for some French pastries. Emma is learning French and receives extra credit for things she brings to class. So it was only right that we got some pastries to try after dinner, along with the bag and box she can bring to her class for credit.
A chocolate tart, a chocolate with passion fruit mousse, and an uzu lemon tart. SO good! We were all beat and knew we had to be up quite early for the return flight home.
I had some food delivered to the Ronald McDonald house, and we began packing up.
Elijah had another rough night, but by 5:15am it was time to get up and clean what we could of the room and head out. By 6:30am we were in a taxi on our way to the airport!!!
Aside from the 5 minutes of the fire alarm blaring and flashing at the airport (false alarm!).....it was uneventful. (Thank you Lord!) We were all anxious to return home and we are so thankful for the adventures we did get to have!!!!
