Leaving on a jet plane...confirmed

Well, you will not hear me say this many times, especially when it involves a government office, but I have to give major kudos to the US passport office for their quick turn around of our passports. We opened our mailbox last night amazed to find 2 lovely passports, both of which have hands down the worst pictures Laurette and I have ever taken in them. Today is exactly 2 weeks since we went to the post office and filled out the paperwork. So it is now confirmed, Laurette and I will be taking our Eastern European Adventure the first of September!

I bet it is not as bad as my DL picture. I look 12.

Hey kids, I am as surprised as you are. I would have bet my life savings that you would have been waiting for those right up to the time you were scheduled to leave.

Budapest will be lovely(?) in September.

WHAT?!?! Why have I not heard of this adventure until now...and congrats on the passport...I turned mine in for a name change in May, and just got it last week. And in my pic I definitely have Texas hair...T-errible.

did you have them expedited? my husband keeps telling me not send mine off for a new one with my married name on it b/c it takes 5 months to get it back. i am going back to canada the last week in september. do you think i could do it and get it expedited and get it back in time?

I found your page through Tricias but I have to say, Michael and I waited on his passport that he payed extra for to have it in two weeks for FOUR MONTHS :) He got it the Saturday, one week before our wedding and honeymoon :) Consider yourself very blessed :) Maybe the passport service has cleaned up their game :) Happy Travels!
