Leaving on a Jet Plane.....

What a day! Our wake up call went off at 5:30 and I'm not sure anyone got much sleep. With all the coughing, sneezing and blowing noses... the cold/flu bug seems to have caught us. Joshua & I are the worst as Sarah came down with it a couple days before we left.
We got down to get our breakfast and then back to our hotel room to get all our things together and down to catch our shuttle to the airport. We got to the airport around 7:30. We checked in. All our luggage got on and we made our way to our gate. We flew from Edmonton to Vancouver. Joshua thought the views were amazing!! He would look out his window and keep saying, "This is so cool!" :) Matthew had other thoughts, like "GET ME OFF THIS PLANE" - He cried pretty much the whole way - stressed me out, but everyone around us was very gracious! On the decent all the kids had sore ears with these nasty colds. The flight attendant gave them warm clothes to hold over their ears. Not sure if it helped too much, but it was a bit of a distraction. After landing in Vancouver, we had a few hours before the next flight. We wandered, Joshua tried to sleep... it was pretty exhausting. No one was feeling well, and we were beginning to think, turning around and heading back NORTH was more appealing.
We pressed onward and caught the flight to LA. Matthew did better - but screamed on the decent again, poor boy, he was NOT happy!
We picked up our luggage, caught another shuttle to the car rental and David stood in line and got us a sweet ride! :)
We drove to Anaheim and got to our hotel room. We made it! The warm breeze felt marvelous, but honestly the only thing everyone wanted at this point was....
At the airport, all loaded up, ready for ... achooo!.... a new adventure.
Kids watched our plane come in... last time we'll snow for a bit :)
Let the thawing out begin!
