Home Again!

WE ARE HOME!

Today went so well! Makenzie was such a good traveler! I did not hear one peep from her on either flight and she even let me take a little nap which made the flight go by much faster!

We left the hotel this morning at 7am. What a sight to see. 6 suit cases, 3 wheel chairs, 2 car seats, backpacks, purses, 3 kids, 4 adults, 1 van. I should have taken a picture of that one!

We got right in to pay our taxes so that we could leave the country... yes... airport tax...you don't pay....you don't leave! When we got up to the counter to check in the attendant was looking a bit frazzled. They had our plane load from the tarmac... no jet bridge. She was trying to arrange a bus to get us to the plane. As she checked us all in she jabbered on the phone with ... well ...who know trying to figure it all out. In the end they where able to change the gate and get a jet bridge.... all for us! WOW!!

We loaded the plane early as they were trying to push us off the gate and the bridge to make room for another plane. It was raining but that didn't slow us down at all. Makenzie was an angel the whole flight. They served breakfast and man where those the best pancakes even. Ok maybe not but after a week of strange tasting food they where!

We arrived in Dallas almost and hour early. This was good and bad because I was going to meet a friend for a bit and with all of the time changing, customs, and security we did not cross paths! I am soooooo SORRY Jon!

Makenzie loved the Skylink!

We had lunch and then said our see ya laters and each headed to our gates to depart to all different parts of the country again! Sad!

Our second leg was much shorter and also went very well! Makenzie loves take off and landing! She also loves to look out the window! She was so alert all day and following directions so well!

After retrieving our bags we headed to the car... loaded it up, stopped by my grandparents house to get the boys and for a quick bite to eat and then headed home!

Makenzie was SO excited to see the boys! She did not stop giggling until she closed her eyes around 8:30pm to go to sleep!

My eyes are very heavy right now after a 13 hour day of traveling. I want to say a HUGE THANK YOU for all of the prayers! This trip was amazing and will not soon be forgotten! Please keep praying for the new stem cells to bring much healing to Makenzie, Joey, Brock, and Gracie!

Believe...Prayer Works!
