A Butt-load of pictures ... beware, it's long

Waiting to board the plane in Calgary. They were serving complimentary beverages while we waited to get on the plane.

Evan and I got this yummy cookie ... and it was YUMMY. We also got a lot of other gifts for being on the flight.

The whole crew waved goodbye to us when the plane pulled out

Evan did so well on the plane, and the man who sat next to us just loved him! Our friend is the public representative for West Jet and was doing all the media appearances, and handing out gifts. It was fun to talk to him!

The tradition is to have fire trucks on each side of the plane spray the plane down when an inaugural flight lands at its destination.

This is the face that met us at the end of the terminal
(I don't know why everything is underlined now)


This is our friend on the news officially opening the direct flight from Calgary to San Diego! They had REALLY yummy food for us to take before we left the airport.

My first night home I had the treat of seeing my Aunt Barb and cousin Ruth. They are moving from Florida to Washington and the timing worked out that I was able to see them again. It was great for me. I was really lucky to see them often when we lived in Florida, so it was great to catch up.

Evan could not get enough of the animals at home! (Especially Blue the cat. He still asks for her!) I would often find him lying on Bridget or playing with her mole. I am so happy that she is a natural mother and just takes it!

me during my tribute!

One of the main reasons for this trip. This is me and Mr. Torns during his reception.

Some of the special friends that I got to see again. Meggie and Jasmin

Evan and I took Bridget on a walk ... this is how we walked home. I tried to put Bridget in the stroller and carry Evan, but she didn't want to do that.

my lovely flowers from my lovely husband! He sent them to me for our 6 year anniversary that we celebrated away from each other ... again.

do I even have to explain why I put this picture in this post?

Two more friends I was lucky enough to see. Jeff McConnell and Christy McConnell-Farnsworth. Oh I feel so lucky I got to see them!

the entrance into Grad Night

Evan hanging out with his "Bampa" I think Grandpa Leavitt was Evan's all-time favorite person on the whole trip (other than Blue).


If you haven't played Quelf ... you need to! Good job Kelley! (if only I could have taken a picture of Becka snorting ... priceless!)

What a special treat to be on that inaugural flight. I still can't believe they had penguins there to greet you. Such a treat for Evan. Loved the pictures!! Makes us miss him more.

The picture of Evan leaning on Bridget literally made me start crying...
Anyways, on a happier note! WHAT a fun trip to San Diego (:

You have a fun life, my friend! I'm going to check out that game. Sounds like a perfect companion to Things in a Box...
