Sitting at Dulles airport…

by in travel

The babies did beautifully on their first plane ride, sleeping or cooing happily the whole time. Hurrah! Now if they can manage that for a six-hour flight to London….

It’s rainy and cold here in Sterling, VA, with thick overcast. The ride down through the clouds was a bit bumpy, but we had a perfectly smooth landing. Now we’re just waiting to see if our England flight boards on time. We have about 30 minutes before boarding.

And some sad news: I discovered while in Atlanta that I had left behind my wonderful digital camera! Aaaaaugh! I was so excited about using it on this trip, since it shoots video as well as still images. Thankfully, Melissa’s sister loaned us her camera for the trip, so we do have a backup plan! And maybe, just maybe, my camera has slipped down into a crack, waiting to be discovered. Matt has the battery recharger and download cable in his briefcase, but the camera is nowhere to be seen. (Sniff, sniff!)

Oh, well… If a lost camera is all we have to contend with, I will be thankful. Time to shut down and get ready for boarding!

    Dear Jennie, First and foremost, congratulations on the safe arrival of your beautiful little boys!!! I delivered a baby boy in May and my hands have been full- thus my lack of a note of congratulations to you (so sorry!). I’m so thrilled you have this blog for your trip. I will be following it, praying for you and easy travel with your babies, and wonderful times with your sweet husband, and your friend, Melissa…and I’ll be enjoying hearing about all of those places I so dearly love. Please have a cup of tea and some yummy scones for all of us who are state-side!!Blessings, Sarah in Toccoa
