We made it to the mainland. I don’t think we could have done it without the help of Jay (Micah’s former intern) and his friend Bob. We had six bags to check, each weighing between 45 and 49 pounds (Micah is a master packer), plus four carry-on bags which were also very heavy. And the carseat. And the kid. Jay and Bob helped transport all of our stuff through agriculture inspection and the bag-check line, which we could not have managed with just the two of us.
Simon slept the whole flight from Honolulu to Las Vegas and then woke up for the layover and then slept again for the flight from Vegas to Salt Lake. We sure are lucky parents. He even let us sleep for about four hours once we got here while his aunties and uncles entertained him. I’m looking forward to seeing how he adjusts to the four hour difference. And when I say “looking forward” I mean that it makes me tired just to think about it.
No pictures, no stories. Just an uneventful and sleepless journey.
