For a hot second I made it Stateside with the kiddos. First of all, it was my first flight alone with both of them. It was about as much of a nightmare as I expected it to be, helped by delay after delay (thank you United #nothankyou). There was a lot of nap-skipping, needing to go to the bathroom on the plane multiple times, waiting for.ev.er. in immigration...ah well. We survived.
The flight back was equally bad, although we got back much earlier so there was still time for a short nap on the drive home. All in all, it was great!

The visit itself was short but sweet. We did a few errands, saw some friends, and mostly spent time with family. Little N in particular just loved it: the attention, the change of scenery. One day we made it to the Children's museum: amazing. Both boys had so much to look at and play with and there were plenty of kids; it was nice.
