Varney Sibling Reunion...getting there!

Dad and I traveled to the valley on Tuesday, October 9th...(Happy Birthday, Jess!) and stayed with Uncle Larry and Aunt Linda. Wednesday morning we were up, packed, loaded and on our way to the airport shortly after 4 am. After we got Uncle Larry thru the metal detectors...we were on our way. First row seats have lots of leg room and it was not a full flight..duh, take of was at 6:30 am. We arrived on time at KC airport and waited for the luggage. I would have taken pictures of the four of us hauling five pieces of luggage, laptop computer, camera, brief case, two big purses and the wheel chair...but I didn't have a free hand.
