Waiting for our flight at Spokane International.
Dakota and Grandma Shelly on the first leg of our flight.
Planning a trip to someplace exotic like Cancun produces no small amount of excitement. The kids counted down the days with nearly the same level of anticipation as waiting for Christmas. Dakota even made a paper chain more than three weeks before the trip and removed one link every day. I enjoyed seeing their happiness and feeling my own excitement.
We got up early in the morning on Friday, September 7 to catch our 5:50 am flight. The flight passed through Denver, and then proceeded directly to Cancun. Rhonda and I flew down with our three children and both our moms. This promised to be the trip of a lifetime.
