the big day

Our vintage cell phone alarms woke us up dark and early at 4:30 am. And we got through airport security and bag check in a record 30 min! {Thanks Mom and Dad for driving us so early!}

Davey and I have very different travel styles. I like to get there at least 2 hours early… just in case. {this is probably b/c Newark is my “home” airport and there are ALWAYS lines out the door. Davey, on the other hand, likes to live on the edge. He is usually the one who’s name is being called on the overhead speakers to board the plane. But my dear, sweet husband has realized, after traveling with me for 2+ years, that a happy wife= a happy life, so he very graciously raises the white flag of surrender and agrees to get to the airport early to avoid my worried, frazzled nerves and fears about missing our flight. He’s so sweet.

We touched down in Seattle at 10:30 west coast time and had a great 6 hours touring the city with Davey’s brother Dan.

1st stop was the public market and the original Starbucks. They had the most beautiful fish, produce and flowers. It was a sight to behold!

Good thing we had hot coffee to put our hands around because it was FREEZING COLD and rainy. BRRRRR! This sign was very exciting to see… it’s hard to read, but it says “Hawaii is closer than ever”…

Back at the airport, we boarded our plane to our final destination. I was rainy when we got there, but who cares… it was WARM! It was funny to see that the majority of the people on our flight were with YWAM too! We loaded up in busses and arrived on base around 9:00 island time… or 3am NJ time. We registered, got our ID cards, met the staff and were brought to our room. {pictures of our humble abode to follow…} We finally made it. It still hasn’t really sunk in that we’re actually. We’re so excited to see what God is going to do in these next months!
