Just thought I would let everyone know after almost 48 hours of traveling we MADE it to AZ!!! It was a LONG couple of days. I got up at 0400, Germany time, on the 4th to get ready for the first flight. We didn't get on that one but there was another one leaving at 2040 so we went home and hung out for a bit and then went back to Ramstein (the Air Force base we fly out of) for some 4th of July celebrating. Then we went back to the airport thinking we probably wouldn't make it so it was no big deal that we were sweaty and sticky from eating cotton candy and riding the rides. Oh and Alexis was a little sunburned. Wouldn't you know it we got on that flight!!

So, we arrive in Baltimore at 0200 Baltimore time (0800 on the 5th Germany time.) By the time I got our luggage, went through customs, made phone calls to switch our tickets, and took a taxi to the hotel it was 0500. So I showered, tried to get some sleep (the girls let me sleep all of an hour and a half!) and was back at the airport at 0930. I met up with a friend there and then caught my flight to AZ at 1430. By the time I got to Arizona it was about 0130 Germany time on the 6th!!!! It was fun to surprise my mom, the Bean's, and the McBride's though!!!

So give me a call all you AZ people and we'll try and hang out!! The girls were FABULOUS on the plane and they seem to be starting to adjust pretty well to the time difference!! See you all soon!!!

Oh and I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July! :)

Hey! Christine told me that you tried to comment on my blog, and it didn't work. Sorry. But, we can still be friends. I am glad that you finally got to Arizona. I had a crazy time trying to get home from the states -- I will have to tell you about it later. I can't wait to see you again. I hope that you are having a good time. We miss you!
