Well, we made it back FINALLY. The much dreaded trip home was LONG and tiring, but it could have been much worse. God blessed us with a smooth flight, a row of 3 seats all to ourselves, and friendly neighbors and flight attendants who helped with Mark and Keaton during the long flight. Turns out that people are in a much better mood on their way TO Hawaii! By the end of the flight, my boys had made friends with almost everyone on board. At one point, a flight attendant stole Mark and took him up to first class for almost 10 minutes just to "show him off."
Daddy was very happy to see us, and we were equally excited to see him. 5 weeks is a LONG time!
Our mainland tour (though stressful and exhausting at times) was 100% worth it. It was great spending quality time with family and reconnecting with friends. I think that we will treasure memories from this trip for a long time. Here are some of my favorite pictures from the tail end of our trip in Oklahoma.
