Leaving on a Jet Plane

Physically getting from here to there is not as easy as one might think. Here's what we're taking:

2 kids
2 car seats
1 stroller
9 giant suitcases to be checked
5 carry-on bags

How will we ever get this stuff through customs Down Under? Wish us luck!

The huge van picked up us and all our stuff and we made it to LAX in record time.

We survived the flight.

We arrived in Sydney Tuesday, March 10th. Here's a photo of the kiddos with all our luggage (minus the car seats which were yet to be retrieved from oversize baggage). The customs officials almost confiscated my camera because I snapped this photo in the baggage claim area. Shame on me!

We're here- This is just the beginning!

Haha-- you look just like us when we moved over! My boys were 2 and 3 at the time and it was crazy.

I think I recognize your airplane seats too! (I know I'm weird)- but we've done it all 3 ways- First, coach, and premium economy- so let me guess-- premium econ on the new Airbus 380 upstairs? Or am I way off?

I hope you're here safe and sound-- and please email me if you'd like to get together-- we'd love to have you over-- we're in the eastern suburbs, have a great swingset, and the beach in the backyard (literally)-- so when you're ready....

Rest up!

Laura- That's business class on a United 747. It was great to have the lay flat seats- everyone actually slept! :)
Thanks for the invite. I will email you to take you up on that soon.

I noticed the United logo on the seat after I left the comment.
