I was a little nervous about handling the airport and boarding the plane by myself with the kids. Haylie was extremely nervous about flying so I was afraid she was going to throw a big fit when I tried to get her on the plane. We had talked about it with her tons of times so I think she knew that she had to get on, there was no other choice. Both kids were fantastic! We met up with my brother, Ryan, on our connecting flight in Denver and Zander made a friend for life when Ryan pulled out some Legos! They are now seasoned flyers and can't wait for another chance to do it.
While we were in Arizona, Zander became his cousin Devin's shadow. It was fun for them to spend some time with our family in Arizona. It was also exciting to be there for Keesa's wedding. The ceremony in the Gila Valley temple was beautiful and so was the backyard reception. It was a little frustrating to set it up since the wind was undoing things as fast as we could do them. It turned out to be a great night though. I was glad I went and missed Dave, who flew to Orlando for training a couple of days after we left for Arizona.
