Our last day in Germany was May 29th. We flew out that night on a 9 hour flight to Baltimore. We flew out at 8pm (German time) and arrived in Baltimore at 11pm (Baltimore time). We slept a lot on the plane but thankfully we were still tired once we got to Baltimore so we stayed the night in a hotel and woke up at 4:30am wide awake!! Jet lag was kicking in! :)
Saying goodbye to friends in Germany. It was so sad saying bye but I know we will see our friends soon!
We got to BWI airport at around 8am for our 10am flight. We flew to Dallas and then from Dallas to Amarillo. We got to Amarillo at around 4pm. Ava did amazing on all the flights and slept most of the way. We had a two hour layover in Dallas so we spent our time in the USO and Ava got SPOILED by the volunteers there. We came out of there with our tummy's full and a few books and candy! :) The USO is a place in the airport for military members. They have a movie theater room, kids room, complementary food and snacks and even a resting room. Its amazing!!
Getting back on track...once we arrived in Amarillo, Bryce's family picked us up, we dropped our bags off at the house and then went to eat at a Chinese restaurant. Ava was
horrible not so happy because she was so exhausted from our trip and I could barely keep my eyes open since I had been up since 4:30am so once we got home, we went straight to bed.
The two weeks that we were in Amarillo, we relaxed, ate out a lot, shopped, bought a car (!), and enjoyed family. We played outside A LOT! Ava was asking to go outside every chance she got and the weather was so beautiful so we were rarely inside.
My new (to us) car!!! I am in LOVE! We sold both of our cars the week before we left Germany. We did not want to go through the hassle of shipping a car, waiting 2 months for it to get here, and renting a car in the meantime.
We stayed 2 weeks in Amarillo and then headed up to Sherman for 2 weeks. Since we have been in Sherman, we have been so busy. We went shopping, took a weekend trip up to Tyler for my 24th birthday, Bryce and I got to go to the movies for the first time in months, went to Dallas a few times, and went fly fishing for the first time out at my brother-in-laws house.
We are going on a double date with my sister and her husband tomorrow and then having family pictures done on Wednesday and then on Thursday, we are headed back up to Amarillo for the night and then driving to Colorado for a family reunion the next morning. Whew!
