On Friday, April 29th we had our last American meal at the SLC airpot before heading out to the Netherlands. Brooke, Lincoln, and Carter were so kind to drive us and our 9 pieces of luggage (yeah, we were not very light packers:)) to the airport. Thanks guys! Our flight departed an hour later than expected but we were on our way to Minneapolis at 11:00 and then hopped on our ten hour flight to Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam. I was able to get some sleep (thanks to the Dramamine) and mom and dad kept themselves entertained by watching "Tangled" and "Secretariat" while trying to sleep. We enjoyed the usual airplane snacks plus a few airplane meals (they were better than we had expected) before arriving 25 minutes earlier than planned! When we landed at 6:00 we picked up our baggage, rented our car, and headed out to begin our adventures! I'll keep you posted on the many amazing things we are going to experience! We love you and wish you could all be here to enjoy this with us...hopefully the blog will give you a little taste of what we are experiencing!
