We made our way to ENGLAND!

Well, hello....
Greetings from England!!
(I think this should be my new symbol---I am American born but now, a UK resident!)
I'm trying to embrace it folks!! 

We have finally made it to England and it was quite the trip! 
If you'd care to know how this adventurous trip happened, keep reading::

After many sad and tearful goodbyes leading up to the day, finally arrived at the airport.  We were sent off by some great friends!! While there were MANY tears and "see you laters", we pulled ourselves together and went through TSA. After a small wait, we got on a small plane that left Kansas and went to Chicago, for our layover.
 It didn't take long for my littlest one to fall fast asleep since it was nap time!
 Once we got to Chicago, we got a quick bit to eat before loading up on the next plane.
 This plane was huge!! Our family had to be separated on this flight, so daddy and Madison sat together...
 and Kayden and I hung out together!
 This was our sweet dinner we were served---but to it's credit, it wasn't that bad!
 Kayden enjoyed it---as he enjoy most food! :)
 He was eating his dessert and watching Frozen...he was in heaven!!
 This was a "landing card" that we got from the stewardess before we landed. I had NO clue what it was and why we needed it but like any good passenger, I filled it out.  Come to find out, everyone has to compete this card and give it to customs when entering the country.  
After a 2 hour bus ride from the airport in London, we finally arrived at the base. The skies were just gorgeous and those clouds looked so puffy!! 
 This is a beautiful tree that was on the playground...I had to capture it!
 The first order of business on the second day was renting a car. We got this very nice Lexus!!
 A look at the inside.
 And yes, I was forced to drive it some. Talk about being scared---my knuckles were white!! WHEW---it was such a crazy experience to be on the wrong side of the car and driving on the wrong side of the road!! I now I have to get used to it but my, oh my.... my nerves were shot!!
I am still adjusting my sleep and eating schedule which is way harder than it seems! Can you say "serious jet lag" anyone???

I am happy to report that we did go house hunting yesterday...I'll be blogging about that soon! It was so much fun!! I can't wait to show you what we found--the good, the bad and the ugly!! Stay tuned!

  1. Yay! So glad you made it! I'd be so scared driving on the opposite side of the road too!
