Yippee! We're On Vacation!

Well, we arrived safely in Hawaii this afternoon and are having a blast. It's super hot and humid, though - not a trade wind to speak of!

Our son was a dream on the flight. We had enough miles for two first-class seats, which helped a lot. The extra leg room allowed us to stand up and hold our baby when he got a little restless. A big shout out to my friend, Whitney, who recommended that we bring the Boppy so he would have a comfortable place to sit on my lap - thanks, Whitney!

My husband and I had no idea what to expect from our son on the plane, so we planned for the worst. I hit Mrs. Fields yesterday and bought out their nibblers (the bite size cookies). I divided them into 20 cellophane bags and put a label on them that read, "This is my first time on an airplane. Please be patient with my parents and forgive me if I cry." The cookies were a big hit with our fellow first-class passengers and the crew. I forgot to take a picture but we plan to do the same thing on the way home, so I'll try to remember then!

Im glad things went so well. Have a blast in Hawaii and with Grandma and Grandpa!

I think I might try to do the first class thing when we go in December.
