On Sunday, March 30, my husband and I arrived at the Lajes Field airport just as they opened. We are both neurotically punctual and wanted to give ourselves plenty of time to get checked in--especially when traveling with three pets.

After work today, I had a little spare time to edit a few of my favorite images from our little photo excursion yesterday.
