Lots to catch up on...and don't worry...I've been praying for my kids!
I will have to do this in spurts because it's going to take awhile...
California, a wedding, a busy couple weeks of "life," and a birthday party where Spiderman, Batman, and Ironman were all invited and very present...
see? LOTS to catch up on! :-)

To begin...our trip to CA was one of the best times I have had...maybe because it was all so new...
Not the traveling part. Not the flying part. Not the family part.
I can't put my finger on it, but it was ALL so great (minus the minor meltdown at the airport coming home, but we can get to that later...and then totally forget it!)

At the time we bought the tickets we had no idea where our lives would be when the time came to get on the airplane. So many things changed: we could pay for it and by God's grace we paid off our entire credit card too, MB found out she would be through her first trimester with little "Meep" for the celebration, the house we stayed in was the BEST idea EVER (and worth the "stress" of planning and deciding, time changes didn't affect us too much, and no world war three broke out (there were a few rumbles under the waves, but nothing major!)...
:-)
The only thing I would change about the way the entire weekend(but I could not and will never be able to) : going through security with two kids a stroller, diaper bag, carry-on, and 4 pairs of shoes to take off.
ugh!
Gramma Mimi had a good time too, I think! :-)
There was always something to look forward to...

mmmmm...naps...
moving sidewalks...oh wait, that's just at the airport! :-)
and only 1/2 way to CA!
reading books...Gabby's choice was usually something with a dog. I was still pushing my way through the Twilight series (I still have 200 pages left in Breaking Dawn!)
There were some times I had to take a break to help little Gabbs...

The adventure had already been going on when we finally arrived!
Gramma Momma was sssssssooooooooooooooooooooooo excited!
:-)
so were we!
And so was Gramma Mimi...
"oohhhh! Is that John Wayne?" said Mimi upon arrival.
So much to look forward too...stay tuned!

I can't believe how many times your kids have flown across the country! They are sure good little travelers! And you have done such a wonderful job or organizing them! That is the key to a pleasant trip!
