The start

We drove all night to Grandma's house. The kids were so excited to start their vacation with family.


Our last play session with the kids.

Saying hello and goodbye to sisters in the same hug.

Kittens....

and cousins. It was time to go.

Started out like any nice drive to San Fransisco. I was about in tears stuck in this traffic. Worried we were going to miss our flight, after yet another wrong turn and into more traffic. I swear we circled that airport and could find no entrances.

But at last - free flying. Phew.

I have started it!!! No turning back now. I will start and finish blogging this trip if it's the last thing I do. Be forewarned - many more blogs a-comin.
