Heading West

Our morning started early (3:30 am for me 4:30 am for the girls) After making it through airport security (The lines were CRAZY long but the girls had pre-check so that helped.) we walked right onto the plane and got settled. After an hour of sitting on the plane they had everyone get off and we waited another SIX hours in the terminal for a new airplane part to arrive and then we were once again loaded up but this time we got to take off.

Lizzy enjoyed the treats I brought along and Brad and Emily crashed while Natalie happily played next to them.
Needless to say we missed our connecting flights out of Minneapolis and after a lot of conversations with Delta agents got our family of six booked on a flight out the next day direct to Idaho Falls. They change the return tickets for the girls and I so we could stay an extra week out West.

Natalie and Camille didn't care what was going on as long as they got to play together.   

These girls were super excited about the t-shirts that came in their Delta over night bags. (Along with the mini toothpastes that they all thought were SO adorable.) They were so excited to stay in a hotel and have breakfast. I have never been so excited to be at a Marriott in my whole life. 
 Brad and Camille opted to head over to the Mall of America and ride roller coasters and explore the place. I was exhausted and poor Lizzy need to go to sleep. 

At the airport for round 2 of "Let's fly to Idaho".
 Loving the play area in the airport.

We finally made it to good old Idaho just 24 hours after we originally had planned. Our first stop was Albertson's...can I tell you how much I miss their great cereal sales!

Oh no! I didn't know your trip out was so 'exciting!' Sounds like our last trip to CO. MN isn't too bad of a place to be in the summer and the Mall of America is definitely fun. Glad Delta took care of you!
