our motorcycle trip. part I.
(june 18-20, 2010)
okay. so i have been having all these cool thoughts about how i am going to post about our trip, and the reality is, that i am just plain ignorant with computers, and we'll just have to leave them as that...thoughts. :)
here it goes. we left lancaster at 2:45 pm fri the 18th, and drove straight thru to denver, colorado...arriving at 6 pm sat. the 19th.
first things first...we all...and by we all...i mean, aldie, judy, matt and i, kaden, kaycee, campbell and calli arrived at the smoketown airport by 8:30am ish on friday morning, june 18, 2010. this...i was not quite expecting. i guess i just assumed that i would be the only one taking the kids, but it was fine this way. [this made my good-bye to calli and campbell very short and sweet...because i could jump in the plane and try not to cry. :)]
i think we took off a little bit before 9am...and it was amazing. i have said before that this trip was totally ordained by God...and i mean it. zach said that we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day to fly...the skies were clear and magnificent, and the ride was smooth as glass. Praise the Lord! no one got sick in the plane, and it was just grand fun, sipping on our cokes, munching on our peanut butter crackers. we got to wear big, heavy headsets, so that we could all talk to each other, and hear the chatter between pilot and all his control people.
we arrived at the little new bern, nc airstrip at 11am...to see my brother matt, his wife, naomi, and their 4 children, (judah-13, ezra-11, noah-almost 9, and zion-almost 7) and foster son, (gage, 18 mo) waiting our arrival...waving and all. it was confirmation to me, that this was right...this was where my children should be for the next 2 wks...(aghh...i get tears in my eyes writing that)...
i actually had fun on the flight back. we talked about fun stuff...husbands and wives, and kids, and childbirth, and child-rearing, and adhd, and how the king men can be a little bit obsessive compulsive a bit in cleanliness, and order, and cleanliness, and order....thanks zach for the stimulating conversation....
we arrived back at the smoketown airport at 2pm, scurried zach home, grabbed some mcdonalds, and were off...to the first leg of our trip...denver, colorado.
my matt was sleeping before i had finished brushing my teeth. goal for tomorrow...get mark's truck to the denver airport, and be on our way...
