how i suck at flying-part one

the night before we  flew to texas my parents asked if i had "checked in" already. um....say what again? the last i flew was to NYC with Ty almost 2 years ago. i had know clue you could check in on advance. or that family's with babies get LESS privileges as they used to. yes, it's true, i live in the dark ages apparently.

but i did remember one thing: i get sick on planes. yuck.yuck.yuck. luckily with some deep kung fu breathing techniques and staring straight ahead at the headrest in front of me i avoided any public upchuckage. which i am very grateful for. there and back.

we had an awesome visit. it was hard to be away from ty and the girls-but so great to see my brother and his family. we usually only get to see them once a year, so twice in 6 months is more than a treat.

phoebe rocked the party that rocks the party. she held on through 4 days of almost NO naps, late bedtimes, sleeping in bathrooms and hotel rooms and being head butted by cousin matthew 800 times like a champ.

i'm exhausted. this morning my mom said, "you look tired". i said, "get used to it". i'm pretty sure i'm going to be tired for the next 20 years at least.

photos of our trip now:

phoebe and grandpa curtis on the plane. how lucky our flights were the same there AND back.

bill and his family. poor matchew.
this is what we all felt like after a 3 hour long graduation ceremony.

it kind of looks like we took a picture and some med grad stood in the background no?

i'm hitting the hay.

Fun! I would have had a meltdown trying to fly with a kid without Brad.
Oh, and you and that dress: fantastic. Needed to be said.
