Ok, I’m finally ready to post now!

Wow. We did it! It wasn’t easy…probably the one of the most challenging things we’ve ever done. But I can say that we successfully flew to North Dakota with a 21-month-old and a seven-month-old!
Three flights there, and three flights back. Jed was completely perfect during all of the traveling, as well as all of the wedding events. Eliza was actually better than I expected on the multiple plane rides. We were able to keep her mostly occupied for five of the six flights, but on the flight from Denver to Minot, we were the parents with the screaming kid. Probably a good 40 minutes of screaming. But you know what? Everyone survived, and it wasn’t the end of the world. People were surprisingly kind and tolerant, which was great.
Our marriage and our sanity remain intact, which is certainly something to celebrate!
Most importantly, we were able to spend time with newlyweds Brian and Amy, who are two of our favorite people 🙂
Here are a few Halloween pics that I took before our departure. I just love my precious little greasers!
And now the Minot pictures:
I wish I could’ve taken more pics during the wedding and reception, but it was virtually impossible since I was holding a kid while juggling a bag most of the time. The ceremony took place in a lovely little church in a rural area outside Minot where the bride’s parents had also married 31 years ago.
I’m so happy we made this trip, difficult though it was. It was an experience we’ll never forget!
