International Flying Goddess? - check

Bags are packed, kids are fed, and documents have been found.  We are heading out this evening for our long flight home.  2 hour drive to DC + check in and security + customs + 13 hours of flying time + stopover in Sao Paulo = Fun for the whole family.

I am armed with the same backpack of toys as in the picture. Yes, that Goddess you see there is me in my natural state of Damn Sexy.  I look my best when I fly internationally with children. Then again, who doesn't.

Rio de Janeiro, watch out! We're back, we're ready, and we're going straight to the pool to cool off!

I'm sure I'll find a good post on the journey.  That is, I will if I'm sane enough to remember once it's over.

Happy Hump Day and I'll see you on the flip side.


  1. Safe travels!! See you soon.

  2. May the force be with you! You are amazing for doing that by yourself with your munchkins. I start to hyperventilate every time I remember our move to Brasil...

  3. Rachel,

    I wish you all the best with this trip.
    Hope you get an upgrade.


  4. I will be here waiting with the three large cars. One question, are you bringing both chairs, booster for Luka and Rafa´s pink one?

    love you! cant wait to see you guys!
