Traveling

As I said before we took the train from Boston back to DC to fly out to England. The army wouldn't buy us our plane tickets "at our convenience" so we had to go back to where Brendan had been stationed - even though it would have been cheaper to fly out of Boston. We all know the world might end it the Army travel agents had to book tickets out of strange and rural airports like Logan :)
So we took the train from Boston to DC because Brendan had driven the car down earlier in the week to put it on the ship at Baltimore to cross over to England. Thank goodness that Brendan upgraded us to business class on the train - it was horrible enough - I don't know what we would have done in the cattle car! Here the kids are in Boston on the train - it was pretty empty until we got to NY.
We stayed in a hotel at Dulles and flew out at 9:30 the next morning. The flight was awesome - I don't think it could have been much better. Aoife slept the entire time, Aidan watched movies and amused himself and Emmy slept for 4 hours - Brendan and I even got to watch 2 movies!!
Here we are getting ready to take off:
