The holiday... or as Gwen would say, shagfest in Vancouver! hahaha

It is official that we will have a small romantic gettaway, paid primarily through airmiles, and I can't fricken believe it! We are going to Vancouver and although it is hard to believe, it will be my first time on an airplane! So there is a little nervousness mixed with the excitement but mostly all excitement. We will be flying down, 2 nights in a hotel and just relaxing as much as we can in 3 days. The last night we are probably going to stay at Adam's Grandma's house and come back the next morning. So, as this is our first trip away together and will be my first time away from the kids for more than a night, I am pretty stoked. It may seem like not long to some but this is a big deal for me of course and it will prepare me for more travelling in the future.
God bless to you all!
Heading to the carnival tonight. The kids can't wait!

Hey Girl, have fun on your trip. My first time on a plane was last summer when me and Jeffery flew to Van to see Scott when he was away at school. I was very nervous. I didn't leave my seat and I didn't take my seatbelt off the whole time. But it's not bad. Just kinda weird to know that your feet aren't on the ground. But it's ok. And it will be great for the 2 of your to get away even if it's only for a few days. Especially considering it's your first time being away from the kids. Any longer and you would start missing them. The first time I was away from Jeffery for 4 days I misses him like crazy!! I enjoyed my time away but I still missed him. Anyway this is a really long comment so I'm going to go now. But have lots of fun!! God bless.

Jess, so good to see a comment from you. Thanks a lot! I am so excited!

Gwen, I hope you are too. I can't even wait and you have to promise not to tell me any scary plane stories in the minutes before I get on. I can handle them now but as the days draw nearer, I am getting more and more nervous.

Thanks Sharon, Good to hear that I am not the only one who didn't get to fly as a child. I was thinking the same about missing the kiddos. I will probably be ready to see them again by the time I get home. Thanks for your encouragement!

Thanks Christy. The only thing that would make it less nerve racking is if we had a will made. I know that sounds morbid but I want to know that the kids are all cared for if something was to happen. But it won't. God will bring me home I am sure. We are so glad to be able to go!
