Now that we're all getting the rest that we need (see previous blog, thank you very much!!), I have pics to load-up and and blog posts to write.
The weekend before last, we flew cross-country to Phoenix to see Cos-Aunt Leslie and Cunkle Jason. Oh, what a terrific awesome time we had. The girls are terrific little travelers....(Dirk, you are right...turned out to be a load of fun) and we have zero complaints. The direct flight from Raleigh to Phoenix was about 4.5 hours and the key, the number key, to our success was that I was all prepped with little brand-new junkie trinkets that I promptly threw away the minute we left the plane. But that was what worked. In between the whole novelty of flying, the seat buckles, the snacks (we bought!! ugh), and the "trinkets", my 2.5 years old were champs. Then, on the way back they were pros by then and nary a tough moment.
So, I would love to regale you with pics from our trip but I AM WAITING ON JASON to send me the pics to post. So, give Jason a hard time, please all, so I can show off our awesome weekend. The best best part was hiking all day long in Sedona. Wow, the girls hiked up hills, climbed up boulders, ran down trails, hiked through ice and snow, stomped through puddles and simply kept on going like energizer bunnies. But, you'll just have to imagine what that looked like UNTIL WE GET PICS FROM JASON.
Actually, the real reason we took the trip is b/c Jason is being deployed to Korea on March 8th and we all wanted to see him before his trip. Since he is leaving in just a couple of weeks, I guess he better SEND ME THE PICS before he goes across the world. :)
"Oh, Nicki....what were you saying....?" "Ah, you were screaming 'I WANT PICS FROM CUNKLE JASON"......wah wah wah.....(jason, just having fun....we love you very very much and know how busy you are now.....)
