We spent the 4th of July with my parents! The trip itself was a long one. We had a flight cancelled about halfway there and ended up staying overnight in Minneapolis. Then were rerouted to another airport in order to make it there in time for fireworks. We had a few other kinks, like our carseats going on to the original airport and not following us and a panicked Momma over the dwindling supply of diapers and pureed foods that were carried on and therefore available this side of security. But our spirits were bright- mainly due to our little girls and their happy-go-lucky-attitude they must have summoned from beyond. We were able to borrow a couple of carseats from the airport to help us get to my parents’ home safely and got an additional sight-seeing adventure worked in along the way.
In the meantime all the extra airport time alloted us:
plenty of tummy time for the Quail.
time for resting…
dinner and a show
some serious Little People reinactments
time for crawling practice disguised as relay races…
and time with the happiest kid that ever spent 2 days in an airport!
We finally got on an airplane and were headed west when we looked out the window and were grateful we hadn’t any red luggage:
and celebrated our lack of red luggage with this:
I love airplane food almost as much as I love hospital and school cafeteria food! That’s not sarcastic either! Give me airplane cookies any day of the week- when I found they started selling them in the store I breathed a sigh of relief that I could lay off pressuring the airline attendants for spares. Fortunately my newfound laid-back attitude has reaped what it has sewn!
More pictures of the actual kiddos on holiday to come!
Wow–2 days in the airport and your kiddos stayed happy the whole time?? AMAZING!!!!
