Getting here

So we are now in Edmonton, 2 days ahead of schedule, we were planning the funeral for Thursday at 3:00 but Grandma just wasn't ready to leave us. The doctors are baffled, as are we, but I know the Lord doesn't make mistakes so I am not looking for what I can learn from this experience and putting my faith in the Lord. We are planning on Tuesday now for the funeral so...... we'll see if that works out. Anyways it has been emotional and I want to lift some spirits with these cute pictures of AJ and my journey home. Aaron took us to the airport at 6:45 and then headed right to school. When we said our good-byes I got way to emotional because mortality has been on my mind so much lately! I know that all will be well but in the moment I guess I got caught up. By the time I was in the Airport and Aaron was gone I had so many tears streaming down my face that a worker approached me to see if I was lost or needed assistance! ha ha ha, what a nerd! I couldn't wipe my face cuz' I had the backpack on, AJ in my arms, as well as trying to pull a 57 pound suitcase. That's right 57 pounds which means that unless I wanted to pay and extra $100.00 (half a months grocers) I needed to take out 7 pound and add it to my carry on. After check in I was wandering around looking for my gate, ready for the mental picture, I had a 25 pound backpack on (bright red!) my camera in it's case slung over my shoulder and resting on one hip, Age AND his pooh blanket (of course) on the other hip, my hoddie tied around my waist and slipping further down with each steep, and let me tell you I was sweating!!!! All I can say is good thing the seat next me me on the plane was empty! (Talk about stank, he he office quote) Anyways here is AJ winning over all the ladies in our terminal and acting all GQ while we wait to board the "Airbus" (That's all the called it our whole trip!)PhotobucketThe flights were both really quick and AJ did great. He loved being in the plain especially now that he understands what they are. Our WHOLE first flight (1hour) was spent in this exact position. He only moved one to get his milk!PhotobucketOnce we finally arrived in Edmonton Grandpa Tolman came to pick us up and after a delicious meal of lasagna we decided to relaxes with a quick dip in the hot tub! PhotobucketFor any of you who don't know Alaina this is here. She is a fish out of water and she love to play with AJ.Photobucket
HA HA HA HA HA. i AM PEEING MY PANTS AT THESE GINORMOUS PICTURES!!! I will work on getting them to a better size!

Lacey, I love the picture of AJ looking out the plane window - I just love the lighting. We are thinking about you a lot as you are going through so much right now. We pray for your Grandma and for your whole family.

p.s. I'm so glad you made it through the airport okay. What an experience! I remember flying to Toronto with Chelsie & Aaron when they were just little - your description brings back so many memories. I'm glad you made it there safe and sound.
