My family and I went on a little adventure last week and it was pretty impossible to keep up on here as we didn’t bring computers along.
My kids had their first memorable airplane rides, went to a wedding and also the adoption day of my niece. We saw lots of family we don’t get to see very often which is always a good thing. 🙂 On the down side, there were quite a few travel mishaps with plane delays, sitting on runways for an hour for 2 flights, lack of sleep and hotel mistakes. With all the craziness the kids really were troopers. A couple weepy times from lack of sleep but mostly on track the whole time…that makes travelling for parents much nicer!
Some trip fun facts:
- sometimes it is easier to pull 2 roller suitcases with a child riding on each than it is to carry the non-roller huge bear of a suitcase
- everywhere should have a free community splash pad where the kids can run around in their swimsuits and squirt each other and slide down mini water slides…no fear of drowning, but small chance of slipping and falling.
- Chick Fil A lemonade is dye free but there is yellow dye in their vanilla ice cream. 😦
- when given the choice to laugh or cry always laugh
