Hi everyone! Happy new year! It feels a bit odd to be back blogging after such a lengthy break, but I’m rested and rarin’ to go. This week, whether you like it or not, you’re going to hear about our recent travels. Yes, we here in Jenworld packed our bags and hit the road. And the air. And the water.
Unlike most of our trips, this one was very, very, verrrrry last minute. We tossed around different ideas all autumn, but didn’t actually commit to a plan until 10 days before departure. Y’all, that is pretty much unprecedented for us, as we usually need at least a month or two to prepare. I’m surprised that we didn’t forget to pack something vital, such as one of our children.
Our 9-day vacation had a big adventure in the middle, with smaller adventures on the front and back ends. Today I’m going to tell you about the first mini adventure, which is referenced in the blog title and hinted at in that photo at the top.
We were originally supposed to leave on the 26th, but snow and ice kept us home and we didn’t set off until the 27th. But when we did, we got in the car and headed south. Nine hours later, we stopped in Georgia to visit my uncle and his family for a couple of days.
My uncle got his pilot’s license a few years ago and has been eager to take us up in the air. On Friday the 28th, that plan came to fruition. His plane only holds four people, so I elected to stay back at the house and let Pete and the girls have the opportunity to fly with him.
They all had a terrific time and now Grace really wants to take flying lessons. I haven’t given permission yet, as I’ve been too busy clutching my heart and spazzing at the thought of 1) my baby flying a plane and 2) my baby wanting to take on a very expensive hobby.
So that was the up in the air part of our adventures. Tomorrow, I’ll tell you more.
And how was your Christmas and New Year’s Eve?
