Leaving on a jet plane.

**Warning today's post has some sad stuff in it and isn't for the faint of heart.**

Lillian trying to climb my leg.
So tomorrow my happy little family and I are heading off on a little trip to Germany. My Opa has been really sick this past year. He had surgery to remove a tumor last September and they missed one of them, and now it has spread. I'm realistic in the fact that he is 78 now and has lived a long and good life and even lived to hold his great-granddaughter. I hope we are all that lucky, yet it doesn't make this visit any easier. He won't make it through the Winter so it is the last time I will see him so that is a bit hard on me. I like to think of this as my final gift I can give to him. He's my father's father and I've always been closer with my dad's parents so it is important to me to be able to see him one last time. Though it will not be easy emotionally, mentally or physically. I'm exausted right now from the pregnancy and not sure how Lillian will do not being able to move around a lot for 8 hours on a plane. I'm hoping that she'll sleep for a portion for the flight since we'll be flying during bed time but I don't know. I also worry about her car seat not arriving there and us having to go buy one.

I also don't like flying so that isn't helping with my mood about the whole trip but I'm sure it'll all work out. So I won't be posting until I get back, and hopefully will have some nice hiking stories (it's really hilly there so I can't run but some relaxed or slow hiking should be okay for me).
