Well...we are in the JFK airport in New York...the first flight from Denver to JFK was great...very smooth and we were able to relax and watch some movies and just take a bit of a break. We have been in the JFK airport since 4:00 this afternoon...our flight does not leave here until 11:00PM...this has been a very long layover...especially with a three year old. We all ready wish we would have packed Blake a few more extra changes of clothes in our carry-on...we will be sure to have enough on the way back.
Our next stop is Dubai...we will be staying overnight at the Dubai airport until our flight leaves for Ethiopia on the 3rd. I am very much looking forward to taking a shower and getting some sleep before our last flight to Addis. My mom just said to me...I can't believe that once we are in Dubai we are only 4 hours away from Brecken...so very true...with each flight we are getting closer and closer to her...finally.

So very close!! How exciting!

I am reading your blog and taking notes, as we are also planning on flying Emirates and will be bringing our almost 4 yr. when we travel. (Although that will be a ways off since we are still waiting for a referral).

Savor every moment of this trip.
