July 22/23rd - Final entry for our 2019 European log.
Great final day, long but still eventful. Breakfast at 9, finish packing and then bus to airport for 2 pm flight. Copenhagen airport is a zoo this time of year but the boys were troopers once again. They are learning.
Flight to Iceland, quick hour to eat and then a flight to Seattle. 5 hour layover and we hang out and get a nice meal, call home, etc, and then an 11:25 pm flight to DFW and we arrive at 5:10 am.
Great welcome from our families and the boys are excited to see their moms and dads. Great trip.
