From Pennsylvania to Kenya: in Pictures

The drive from Beaver, PA to Atlanta, GA (that’s Ethan under the blanket!)

Anxiously awaiting our very first airplane ride in Atlanta’s airport.  About to become international travelers!

Finding our way through Chicago’s airport was an adventure in and of itself.  Evie looks comfortable!

Swiss Airlines = movies in every seat = happy kids (at least for a little while!)

With flights this long, it’s easy to make friends along the way!

Did we mention Zurich has a playground to occupy little legs while you wait for your next flight?  How cool is that!

A cool shot out the window over Switzerland…off in the distance you can barely see the Alps.

International travel is extremely tiring…

…but it’s nice when the answer to Nate’s question, “Is this Africa?” is finally “YES!”

Our lodging for the last few days as we re-coop from our travels:  Mayfield Guest House in the heart of Nairobi, Kenya

The weather has been beautiful (low to mid 70s and sunny) so the kids have been able to enjoy the outdoor playground on the property.  There’s even a soccer/basketball field and plenty of lizards to catch!

Ethan’s buddy, Anika.  Her family is going to RVA too!  As you can probably guess, EVERYBODY knows Nate already, so to post pictures of all his new friends would be nearly impossible :)

Already we have been surprised by God’s abundant grace. Believe it or not, one of the most recent surprises was African style Rhubarb pie for dessert!  And Ethan asked “Daddy, is it your birthday?”  Nope, not his birthday. But he did enjoy two pieces after lunch.
