We've Landed!

Me and the boys made it to my parents house in New Harmony, Utah!

The plane ride was as smooth and stress-free as a plane ride can be when you're flying by yourself with two small children. (As my freind Adrienne pointed out, I technically had THREE children with me. ha!) Myer fell asleep about 30 seconds after take off, and then I was able to keep them entertained when he woke up so that he never even fussed or cried. (Using mostly snacks and stickers and a book with doors he could "open" to reveal pictures under them.) It was awesome. On the way home we have a connection flight with a short layover, and the flight isn't right at naptime, so I have no idea what to expect. I am trying not to stress about that yet. But if you know me at all, you are probably laughing out loud at that last sentence. haha.

We are having a blast!

Lots of fun playtime with DooDad.



Thank you for all of your helpful tips on flying with little boogers. I would never have made it here so successfully without you!!!!
