In faraway Fairbanks

24 Jul

Our plane ride to Fairbanks was fairly uneventful! (Praise God!) The power of prayer works!

Annabelle & Ruby were quite content on this FOREVER long flight. They both meowed a few times but not enough to disturb anyone else around.

Brandon & I got a few cat naps in on the flight but it will be nice to get home and crawl in bed!

Touchdown in Denver

23 Jul

Touchdown in Denver! Two flights down, 1 flight & 2-hour drive to go! 🙂

We loaded the plane in St. Louis, got all situated, and then the flight attendant proceeded to tell us that Brandon & I would have to sit 10 rows apart since we have two animals. So I ended up sitting with a nice man flying to San Diego. There was a girl sitting across the row from me with two babies (8 month old and a 2 year old). She was from Owensboro! (Small world!) She lives in Anchorage with her military husband.

Anyway, Annabelle & Ruby did wonderful on the plane. No bodily fluid leakage this time! 🙂 I had to check on the kitties several times because they were being so quiet!!

We are now in Denver waiting on our flight to Fairbanks. Say some prayers that we survive this next flight. It’s the long one (5 1/2 hours).

We found a family bathroom and were able to let Annabelle & Ruby out to roam around.

In St. Louis

Made it to St. Louis.

Here was my view on our last plane.

The man on the left is the pilot. The man on the right was a lucky passenger who got to co-pilot.

Ruby meowed the entire way.

Annabelle was wonderful other than the fact that she peed on herself. 😦 Poor Annabelle!

When we arrived in St. Louis we had to go to the ticket counter to pay for Annabelle & Ruby. Then we had to go BACK through security. I almost had an anxiety attack but my wonderful husband talked me through it. 🙂 I sure love him!! ❤

Now we are sitting, waiting for our next flight. Annabelle and Ruby are very content on the ground. 🙂

I will post more in Denver…if I have time.

Love to all!!
Bethany

No goodbyes! See you later!
