We're Here

So, after 18 hours of traveling, 1 hour of sleep, mechanical malfunction delays in Frankfurt and lost luggage we have arrived at our hotel. I forgot how long this trip really is. We left Alexis with Uncle Brian at Dulles airport during our first layover. She could hardly wait to go and wasn't the slightest bit sad to be away from us for 2 weeks. The prospect of time with her cousins has had her on the verge of ecstatic for weeks. Hungry and tired, Jim and I are going to run around the corner to TGI Fridays for a quick bite (I know, I know but it's something Jim will eat and it's cheap. We will have plenty of time for good local cuisine later in our stay.)Then we are going to bed. We debated trying to stay on Eastern time like we did last time but I don't think we'll be able to. The last flight from Frankfurt was really long and cramped and we couldn't sleep at all. Tomorrow we'll check out of our hotel and make the 8 hour drive to Novgorod for our court date on Thursday. Hopefully we'll have a bigger car this time. :-O

  1. Glad you made it ok. Hope you can get some rest. Did they find your luggage?

  2. Praying for the family to be able to travel home together. We are excited for you.
