We made it!

Thanks to prayers, we made it to Thailand and had a smoother trip than we could have asked for! Bee did awesome and only had some issues with her ears on the last 15 min of our final flight into Chiang Mai. I can't believe how well she did for barely sleeping the whole trip! On our long trip from Houston to Tokyo, we each had our own touch screen tv with a huge selection of movies and tv shows to choose from. Bee watched Horton Hears a Who 20 times over and could be heard giggling at various intervals. I was thankful that the only thing I had to remind her of was to not laugh too loud while others were sleeping around us. :-) At our layovers we discovered escalators (the moving walkways) to be our best friend. Bee called them "exercisers" and had the best time running along them over and over.

My aunt picked us up from the airport and we went to the market for our first meal of "moo ping" (grilled pork) and sticky rice. Bee also found some mini oranges which she's been devouring. After a nap we enjoyed a delicious homemade meal of rice with cashew chicken and pork. Once it was dark enough we went outside for a walk and lit some lanterns to celebrate arriving in Thailand! A very fitting end to a great first day!
The pictures below are mostly of our first day here and some from transit.
