another cross atlantic flight

What a week!

We have all made it safe and sound and finally back on American soil. It was a busy moving day, not one minute to spare, but the trip went really well. All 3 kids, even little Darren, were fab on the plane despite several setbacks. Like the fact that they had us originally seated almost all completely separated, or that they didn't have a car seat that was promised for me for a newborn and I was told that I would have to hold Darren the whole flight despite the fact that we bought a $1700 seat just for him so I DIDN'T have to hold him for 10+ hours, or that once we found 3 nice folks to switch seats with us so we can all be seated in one row to find that 2 of our tv screens were not working and 1 went out mid travelling, or that the kids' dinner I pre-ordered didn't go through. Yeah...

Luckily, our kids are flat out amazing, and Darren was small enough to be laid flat on the airline seat so I really didn't have to hold him the entire flat. Trust me, Virgin Atlantic will hear from us.

Again, all 3 kids have adjusted to the new time pretty darn well. Better than Tim and I actually. We have had several 3 am cereal parties in a row, but I think we are just about there.

Here is what we looked like at Heathrow.

I'm glad Tim captured a small glimpse of the circus we looked like going down the airport, because it was nearly impossible for me to photograph. Picture me pushing one of those big heavy carts with Darren in his carseat hanging from my other arm, Marisa pushing Natalie in the stroller behind me with my huge bag attached to the back and Tim picking up the rear pushing TWO big heavy carts filled with suitcases/boxes. We were a freak show I tell ya.

Now it's time to start tackling the long list of to-dos that accompany an international move!
