This is a blog about our life. I started the blog because we lived overseas for my husbands job. That meant it was hard to keep family, back in The States, in the loop about what we were up to. It also became a great way to share my sons birth story with everyone who we wish could have been there. I slowly got busy with life & stopped blogging. Here we are in 2014, living back in the good ol' USA & as we make life changes I find this to be a great way to share my thoughts and save them for my son to look back on someday.

Mini Vacay

So we just returned home from our little getaway to the States. WOOHOO, oh how I love America. The Mr and his friend wanted to go to an Eagles game. So The Kid and I just went along for the ride, and American shopping and eating of course  :D So the three of us along with our friends and their two children set off on an adventure.
Day 1:
We went to Ramstein to catch a military flight aka free to Baltimore. Well we missed the flight because there were not enough seats on it. BOOHOO!  So we set out to find a room for the night since the next flights out were EARLY in the morning. We tried a couple different hotels and they were either too expensive or no room, bahhh humbug! Anywho, we finally found one for a decent price. It turned out to be pretty nice. Our room was connected to our friends through a doorway, which was nice, their kids could run free. It was The Kid's first time staying in a hotel so of course I documented it. Here he is hanging out.

Day 2
Day 2, we wake up before the Sun and head to the terminal. We got there and it was SUPER packed with troops. So our first chance at a flight was at like 7:30am. Just our luck, cancelled, cancelled, cancelled. All the flights we were hoping to be able to catch that morning were cancelled. Good times, NOT. So we were waiting for one last change flight around lunch time. All  of the sudden they announced a few open seats on a flight to McGuire AFB. We were lucky enough to catch that flight out. (Our friends made the next flight out to Baltimore). So we went on a KC 135. This is not an ordinary plane with ordinary seats and luxuries. It was just the opposite. COLD and LOUD. Ha, but it got us to exactly where we needed to be. So the Kid had his first flight on a military plane, and it was an international flight. He did AWESOME! Only cried twice, and no one could hear it because it was so loud on there. Here is on the plane.

We got to the base, picked up the rental car and settled into lodging for the night. The Mr went and picked up some food while Chango and I got comfy, we were exhausted from a long day of traveling. Late late that night The Mr headed to the Phili airport to pick up his cousin. She was joining us for a couple days!!
