Home Sweet (Yawn) Home

Well, we are home. The trip back from Israel presented us with a completely full flight (with no seat for Ezra) that flew during the middle of the day…therefore little sleep for Ezra. Lots of trips up and down the aisles, and lots of time with Grandma and Grandpa – which were life savers for Ahna and I.

We got back to JFK in New York and had a 3 hour layover – which at JFK turns out to be just enough time to navigate your way through a gigantic mess. I think that it must be the most poorly designed/run airport that I have flown through in a long, long time. Everything seemed to be antiquated, too small, and not thought through.

Regardless, we made our plane okay and the trip back to Denver featured Ezra sleeping the entire way. His lack of sleep on the first flight, combined with way too much to look at during the layover resulted in him staying up until 1:30am Israel time. He was a trooper and wasn’t too grumpy, but we just felt for him and were happy when we finally dozed off. The plane ride itself was pretty uneventful – other than the fact that it was not a cool cabin, and Ahna’s seat didn’t recline.

We were able to leave JFK early, and that put us into Denver 1 hour earlier than expected. My Mom met us at the airport and drove us home…not much conversation as all three of us fell asleep. We got back to the house right around midnight and headed for bed.


  1. Oh man, I feel for you guys! I am glad you are home safe and sound, and I pray there is much peaceful, deep sleep in your near future. Welcome home!!!
