First Day in USA

I have a lot of catching up to do.  Shall we then?
Our flight to the US was long and long and long and otherwise very good.  I was so worried about Wyatt screaming massive amounts, but he just stayed latched on to me pretty much the whole time.  Brett took care of Orrin, the ipad took care of the boys, and the girls were profusive finger knitters.  :)

Brett’s mom and dad and sister Kristi and her husband Mason were at the airport when we got into Salt Lake and had very kindly brought our Suburban to us.  We drove to Megan’s house that night and were so so so so tired.  Like you feel like a ton of bricks tired. 
But the next morning we got to see our family!!  And we loved it!!!

Jethro spent the ENTIRE day riding the motorcycle around and around the house.  He got a pretty good sunburn on his arms and hands.

Despite the looks on their faces, Orrin and Ruthie really enjoyed it.

Lindsay and I took some pretty sweet pictures of ourselves.  Well, not actually.  My MOM took the pictures, we were IN the pictures.
