Happy Familyversary, Happy Familyversary, laa, laaa,laaa

May 8, 2010

Tyler and I woke up early, we got ready and then woke Ava up.  We ate a little breakfast (Dunkin Donuts from across the street that had just opened the day before), and something like yogart.   We arrived at the airport and I was surprised in how new it looked, coming from St. Petersburg, where the airport was very very old, I was impressed by the Moscow airport.  We flew Swiss Air from Moscow to Switzerland and then we were supposed to have a 2 hour layover there.  Ava slept the whole trip to Switzerland, while we were waiting for our plane to board this time the Icelandic Volcano happened to interfer with plans yet again.  Our layover went from 2 hours to 3 hours then it went to 5 hours and at 6 hours we were starting to board the plane and Ava just fell asleep in the stroller, she woke up when we found our seats.  Well that 10 minute nap kept Ava awake for about 3 more hours of her not being satisfied.  She wasn't crying and she wasn't whining, she just wasn't happy.  Well I had it because I knew she was very tired and I took her in the back of the plane where the stewardess are and I held her in my arms firmly and rocked her, she cried loudly for just a couple of minutes and then boom, just like that she was sound asleep.  She slept the entire rest of the time.  What was supposed to be an 9 hour flight, turned into a 10 1/2 hour flight because we had to go around the Icelandic ash in the air.   I had to wake her when we finally landed.  She was home, and she was ours.  We finally met up with the rest of the family and that is why today is FAMILYVERSARY DAY.  Our family was all together and we could rejoice.

Happy, happy day!!!! Our family day is tomorrow! We are choosing to celebrate the day we arrived home too. That way the boys are included. Ava is so blessed to have such a loving family!

I don't think I can even relive the flight though. 10 1/2 flight with Grace awake from 9 hours straight!!!! Hitting and pulling my hair most of it!
