The last time we flew to the States the kids were 1, 2, 4, 6, and 7. Oh, and Matt wasn't with me :)
This trip their ages are 4, 5, 7, 8, 10. Elementary-schoolers rock the airplane, that's all there is to it!
And on the approach to Denver I decided this is where I want to live. Gorgeous snow-capped peaks at the end of a "short" trans-Pacific flight and I'm sold.
Waiting for us right outside of baggage claim - my parents!
Don't we look chipper? The boys each slept a few hours, the girls pulled an all-nighter, college-style. We stayed awake all afternoon, energized by Grandmama & Granddaddy and the hotel pool.
We've now been in Denver almost 30 hours and are headed for bed. Tomorrow morning we start a road trip to North Dakota (this is the downside of stopping in Denver! ha!) but as our plans for the summer came together the jet-lagging-road-trip was the best option. We will be back in Colorado in about a week and depart from Denver July 30th.
So excited to see ND family and friends soon, and hopeful that the road trip will be as favorable as the flights!
