On the 6th, the kids and I left for Colorado (flew from Augusta-Atlanta-Denver, drove from Denver-Colo. Springs). The longest flight was 3 hours and Annaleigh literally fell asleep as the pilot announced the descent into Denver, so she slept for a whole ten-fifteen minutes of that ride. So airport to my parents house was about 8 hours total. Not too bad.
The very next morning, my sister (Hannah), Annaleigh, and I left at 4am to drive six hours to The-Middle-of -Nowhere Kansas, to watch my little brother's band preform. He did a really good job, and my sis and I had a lot of time for catching up, so besides a speeding ticket and a little sleep deprivation, it was a great time. The next day we drove back home...it was a lot of traveling in three days.
The trip home was a lot longer (about 12 hours) since the Denver airport took a whole lot longer to get through than Augusta's little one. Thankfully Allie slept for two hours on one flight and then a lovely grandpa played with her for the entirety of the second flight.
I'll have to write about the trip a little more another day, but for now I have to figure out what to do with the tons of toys that came home with us!
