Nicki, Kate and Sparky before going through security to board their Virgin Atlantic flight to London, and then head down to South Africa.

As I write this, they should be getting ready to land in Johannesburg, and then later to Durban to see Granny Moira and Grandpa Tony.  I pray it’s been a safe journey and not stressful…traveling with two little ones is hard enough with Mom AND Dad.  Wish I could join them on this trip.  It will be a long time away from home, but it’s so important for them to see Granny and Grandpa in person and not just via Skype on a Macbook Pro.
