The Airplane Ride

2010-04-06 19.20.04.jpg

Last night the girls and I took a little trip. Both girls have flown before but I've never flown with both of them together! I thought the best thing to do was to get a direct flight...and so I took the flight I could find...750pm...yeah, bedtime. Maybe it wasn't the best plan?

We got to the airport and I thought I had it all planned out. I'll toss Gator in the stroller (single), Peanut in the Beco (its a carrier) and then the diaper bag on my back...that's AFTER I checked the suitcase and carseat!

Going through security wasn't all that easy, ok, it wasn't easy at all.

Then, we finally sit down and I look at the tickets and Gator and I aren't even sitting next to each other! Seriously?!

Thankfully, it all worked out...but I guess that's what I get for not paying the $6.00 per flight, per person SEAT FEE!

The girls were pretty good, we loaded onto the plane and they were content. Thankfully we had three seats together and by ourselves! But, because I listed Peanut as a lap infant they wouldn't let me use the seat next to me during take off or landing (unlike some other airlines). Whatever though.

Gator was really well behaved (aside from spilling the drink all over me) and Peanut...well, Peanut was Peanut! She was soooo happy on the plane until it started moving...then she starting wimpering, then crying and then screaming...yes, screaming!

She finally settled down when we were in the air and had a snack, colored, played stickers, etc...

But then she was cranky again...and fell asleep!

Falling asleep would have been great had it been more then two minutes before we landed...the wheels were down and we were already prepping for landing...nothing like last minute!

Hopefully, next time we'll plan a little and learn.

No good pictures...aside from the one and only one I took up top. I was just slightly frazzled...but, its all good now!
