See ya later, UT.
Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end. It was so sad to leave our friends and family.
We were scheduled to fly out on the 30th so we could join Dave for New Years, but we failed to notice that he was on call New Years Eve. If Dave was going to be at the hospital I would have rather been home in UT with my family rather than home alone with my sleeping babies. Long story short, our only chance to stay longer was for our flight to be canceled or over-booked (the rescheduling fees were WAY more than we wanted to pay). We thought our chances were pretty good because of the snow storms. Well, no such luck. Let's just say it was one hectic morning getting ALL our stuff packed and out the door. We arrived at the airport @ exactly 11:52 and our flight left at 12:30. I'm shocked we made it.
This is what I pushed around the airport. Can you believe it? With ALL our Christmas presents and such, we took full advantage of our carry-ons (and we even shipped 3 boxes home). And yes- that is a garbage bag hanging from the stroller. The stuff inside was originally in a shopping bag (not much better), but it ripped going through security so they gave me a garbage bag.
Needless to say, we turned lots of heads. I felt like it anyway.
We had a LOOONG layover in Denver- our flight was delayed for over an hour. Addi's static-y hair was our layover entertainment when the moving walkways got boring.
The kids were major troopers- they were awesome for the whole trek home. Besides leaving my phone on the plane, everything went smoothly and we made it home safe and sound.
