YAY! My parents have arrived. They had really great flights and have even stated that "it wasn't that bad!!". They didn't arrive already dreading the flight back home so this is an answered prayer already. Everything went really smooth so it's been a great journey to the land down under.
On another note... we celebrated our friends 30th birthday Saturday evening on some acreage just in land from us. It was nice to get out in the country- open fields & gravel roads!
