We are in Spain!!!

We safely arrived in Madrid, Spain this morning at 6:30 am, Friday, August 21. We left Chicago on Thursday, August 20 at 3:30 pm. It has been a long day with traveling and time changes. We are so excited to be here!!! Tomorrow is Luis and Laura's wedding in Avila, Spain. I am currently typing this post from our hotel room in Avila. We had a very big lunch at 2:00 pm, so we will most likely go to bed without any supper. Our lunch was with our friends traveling with us, the bride and groom, their parents and the groom's brother and sister-in-law. Everyone is enjoying the chance to teach Brynn some Spanish, which has been a lot of fun. We have only been here for one day! Below are some pictures of our trip so far. I can't wait to share more after the wedding tomorrow. It will be a really long day/morning.

Ready for our flight!

These screens were on the back of everyone's seat, so you could watch movies, check the flight status, shop, and lots more.

My breakfast on the flight.

Part of our crew heading to lunch.Notice the McDonald's balloon...YES we have already been to one. Brynn had french fries with her breakfast.

LUNCH! Brynn had spaghetti. Just wait til Italy!! 

Brynn was SO excited to see Laura she ran and screamed to get to her! Laura is LOVING teaching Brynn some Spanish.

Brynn has also taken a liking to Luis' mama. They bought her presents.
