Leavin on a Jet Plane

and I'm not sure how to feel about it. On the one hand I am excited to go on vacation. 7 days of spending time together, getting to go to things that Gabe will, as Carl says, geek out about but on the other hand 7 days with kids not in our own beds, off normal schedules, etc. Don't get me wrong I think after the flight tomorrow I will relax a lot. I am nervous about the flight, not Gabe I think he will be super excited plus you throw a movie in the portable DVD player and he is good to go. I am nervous about our extremely wiggly, extremely vocal, extremely red-headed little almost 13 month old. Ty can be a handful, especially when he doesn't have free reign on where he goes. The good thing is Gabe has a seat to himself and Carl is right across the aisle. That should allow for a little bit of roam room. I have several new books, some toys and lots and lots of snacks. I will buy some juice/milk to put in his sippy once we get past security for take off and landing. We are taking the stroller to the gate and then having them put it under so when we get to DC they will get it out for us to use there(right?) I think I am all packed and have not over looked anything. We are all checked in and have our boarding passes printed. Now all we have to do is get our selves and two little kids up and ready to leave the house by 4:45am. Let the fun begin!

Hope you have a great trip Hollie! I understand. . vacations aren't really "vacations" with kids, but they do create a lot of (mostly fun) memories! Porter would be thrilled to ride in an airplane! But yes, containing Trey at a puppet show today was tricky! Can't wait to see lots of pics!
