Here is Tyler telling the pilot to please take us to Pennsylvania.
Watching Cinderella and eating a snack...all is good in the world.
I gave the kids lollipops to suck on as we landed so their ears didn't hurt...Tyler obviously had a blue one.
Here we are with Grammy.
We went to a pancake breakfast with Dad at the Marine Corps Club. The kids LOVED playing in the helicopter that was outside.
The weather was rainy and chilly while we were there but we still took a nice ride and got out to see some pretty scenery.
We basically only had Saturday and Sunday in Hazleton but were able to get in lots of time visiting with my dad, his wife, my grandmother, my aunt and uncle, and cousins. It was a quick trip but finally having Emma meet everyone was worth all that travel time to get there.
With Dad and Jack
With cousins Gavin and Becky..Mackenzie had already left.
Monday was a REALLY long day. We started it off with some emotional goodbyes and then drove back down to Philly. We were about an hour late leaving there because of the rain. The flight from PA to Chicago was a little over two hours. We did not get off the plane in Chicago just dropped off and picked up passengers. The next leg of the flight was three hours and fifty
minutes. We did make some of that hour delay up in the air but it was still a LONG flight. I have to tell you, the kids were amazing little travelers. I was just so proud of them. We brought movies, coloring books, toys, and candy on board and it all helped to make the long day as pleasant as it was for the kids, us, and the full flight.
