After much discussion back and forth, everyone decided to go with Matt to California the last week in October. It was a tough call: the kids love their Halloween traditions at home but didn't want to be split up on Halloween or to pass up on an opportunity to go back to California and to take their first airplane trip. Forecasted nasty weather at home for Halloween helped with the decision, and we were on our way.
These are some pictures of us passing time in the airport before the first flight, keeping occupied to tame first-flight nervousness.
