Happy Labor Day my fellow American's... hope you are all enjoying your long weekend
Flying to Karachi is a minimum 16 hour ordeal.. there are no direct flights either. We flew via Emirates with an hour and a half stopover in Dubai. I started planning weeks in advance.. not so much for once we landed but mainly for the 16 hours it would take to get there.. I was very nervous about the flight. I packed snacks, water bottle, candy in case of emergencies like a crying fit.. I also packed a book each, a coloring book for H those invisible ink ones, activity book for D, a bag of lego's and play doh.. my bag was full! Plus of course extra change of clothes for everyone and plastic bags.. D is our resident vomitter.
Thank God some twenty hours later we were safely in Karachi.. I say twenty because we had some flight delays in Dubai. The boys were both pretty good... I didn't get much sleep since they both decided to adopt different sleep cycles.. H was all about the play doh and D couldn't believe that he was allowed unlimited screen time. Emirates proved once again what a great airline it is M would disagree since they lost one of his bags. The kids got special kids meals.. good ones, D my picky eater gobbled it up and they provided such fun kids activity packets.
And then I was home.. or what I once called home.. and the boys were bathed with attention and love and hugs and kisses.. :) they were under the weather on and off but we got through it and we all still had a lot of fun.
Cousin Reunion.. actually the last time they met two of them hadn't even been born
aww.. she is two months older than H
