Yes, it was a long-awaited trip . . . a Christmas gift that we gave to Bekah in December 2019, plane tickets to visit Kati who had married and moved away earlier that year.*
Originally planned for March 2020 (and we all know how that turned out).
Rescheduled for October 2021 (and then our family got a stomach bug).
Planned for spring break (and then Bekah's school delayed opening in January and cancelled spring break).
So we squeezed in a few days between classes, deciding that a short trip was much better than NO trip (and Bekah's flight voucher expired at the end of March).
We missed our flight home because of a clerical error on Bekah's boarding pass and Andrew had to drive back to the airport a few hours after he had dropped us off because we couldn't get another flight until the following day. (Silver lining: we had a bonus day to visit!)
Five-sixths of us ended up with colds before the visit was over.
But . . . I would not have traded these days with Kati and her family for anything! Babies don't keep!
(He calls it "B-I-B-I-B-I" which is absolutely adorable!)
Knowing that Caleb is a HUGE Paddington Bear fan right now, Gammy (my mom) sent along a special gift for him. Caleb loves "Paa"!

Caleb and I always take a mirror selfie when I visit his house.
