The trip to the Netherlands

I won't bore you with all the details of our traveling experience or our first few days after our arrival but I will share a few memorable moments with you all!!

Leaving was incredibly hard but we are adjusting well.  When we arrived at the airport we were 2 1/2 hours early.  Luckily we didn't arrive a minute later!  We get to the counter and tell them we are traveling with an infant and a dog.  People just looked at us like they felt sorry for us!  We looked ridiculous with all of our things! This picture doesn't do it justice! 
So at the counter they tell us that we needed a ticket for Jackson, even though he is just sitting on our lap.  This is news to us after we have spoken to a travel agent through Josh's work and not one but TWO Delta Airline people.  so we have to get out of line and go purchase a ticket.  This takes FOREVER!! Finally it is done and we have to go back to the check in counter.  Luckily they take us to the front of the line and are figuring out how to get Grace on the plane. This again takes forever.  Finally we get everything done and have to have Grace inspected by the TSA's and then she is sent off.  Josh and I make it through security with our 2 bags each and a stroller and car seat.  We're both pretty  much completely frazzled and not to  mention starving, meanwhile Jackson is screaming now because he is also starving.  I go to feed Jackson while Josh goes to the trusty McDonalds for us. 

By the time Josh gets food we're already boarding the plane.  It's a good thing we didn't arrive a minute later!!

The plane ride went GREAT!  Jackson slept the whole time just waking up to eat! Grace was waiting for us when we got off the plane and we were off to our new home away from home!
