Leaving on a Jet Plane

Well, today is Saturday and this is the last day to pack and get everything ready for our trip to Ireland. We are pretty much packed, but there is always the last minute stuff; toothbrushes, make-up, underwear :). My dad called this morning and is so excited. He has been decorating his house like crazy for our arrival. He is so excited to see Gavin and Tyrone and to spend time with us. I can't believe we will be there for a month, but we have an itinerary and are doing a little traveling throughout Ireland and over to Scotland. I have a lot of family and neighbors to see also. We are heading to L.A tomorrow, although our flight doesn't leave till Monday afternoon. Lucas' dad was generous enough to offer to drive us down to L.A which saved us some money on tickets from Las Vegas to L.A. We booked a hotel by the airport to stay tomorrow night and then we'll take a shuttle to the airport on Monday. I am not looking forward to going through security at LAX. There was such a long line last time and only when we got to the front of the line, did we find out that there is a separate line for people with kids. I will probably not relax till we are sitting on the plane taking off. We are very excited and hope the adrenaline will keep us going. We will try to update our blog as much as we can along the way.

Very interesting title for your blog Mandy.(Remember that song for me at Ricks?) I do! LOL
I am so excited for you guys! I remember camping in Scotland when I was a little girl from when we lived in England. Take so many pics k! Wow a whole month!
Be careful okay and remember to soak up all the help you can get at the Airport (since you have kids).
Love you!
