Flight Home

I have been pleasantly surprised at how smoothly everything has gone this week and especially how well the kids adapted to everything we did.  There were some rough moments but we had fun, got a break from the day-to-day grind and had some good family bonding.  I say it was a success!

The trip home was actually quite uneventful and I only took one photo today (yogurt breakfast in the room before we checked out) but figured I should wrap up with one last post.  We caught a shuttle to the airport (6 bags of luggage + 3 toddlers + a stroller on a train didn’t sound fun) and checked in around noon.  Security was outrageously long but thanks to the three amigos in tow, we were ushered to the front of the line. Sweet! No mishaps this go around.  We rushed to McD’s for happy meals for some not so happy little campers.  They were over-hungry and over-tired and wanted to run their little legs.  Cooper had a complete and utter melt down which made me a little nervous about cramped quarters on a plane for 3 hours.

My worrying was short lived however.  All THREE boys were snoozing away by the time we were in the air! (No, we didn’t give them any drugs, though we considered it…) Not only that, but they slept for almost two of the three hours!  I was so, so happy.  Even Derek and I got a little shut eye.

We had a small inconvenience with our checked bag once we were in SLC but it was resolved pretty quickly and we made it home in time for the boys’ bedtime and Derek’s soccer game.  Momma is blogging and eating chocolate in bed.  Perfect ending to a perfect week.
