Our adventure back to Germany began Thursday morning while trying to fit all our stuff into Dad's Honda Civic. We did it! Final count: 1 garment bag, 1 big green army duffel, 1 duffel bag, 1 huge suitcase, 1 double stroller, 3 carry-ons, 2 car seats, 2 kids, 1 mom, and 1 Gramps. The flight was as enjoyable as possible with 2 kids. We sat in the bulkhead row where Abigail flew in style in her bassinet. Declan fell asleep before take-off and awoke only because he smelled the food they brought for him. No one slept too much on the plane, which I decided was a good thing, because we would all sleep when we got home. Good plan, right? Well, it worked! We arrived back in Wiesbaden and were all settled into our beds by 0730 CET (thats 1:30am EDT). We woke up at noon and did some food shopping and unpacking. Later on we took a walk around housing and had tilapia for dinner. Luckily the kids were settled in bed (albeit MY bed) by 9pm and I woke them up around 10am.
Thanks to the wonderful Lufthansa staff for providing us world class service, Billie for making sure there was milk for Declan in the fridge, and Dad for hauling the darned car seat through two airports.
