  • 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!

    Alex 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 Alex when he got a little restless. A big shout out to my friend, Whitney, who recommended that we bring the Boppy so Alex would have a comfortable place to sit on my lap – thanks, Whitney!

    Marc and I had no idea what to expect from Alex 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 – Baby Alex.” 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!


    1. Great ideas! Thanks for sharing, glad your flight was good!

    2. 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.

    3. Thanks, ladies! I’ll try to keep you updated – we’re having a great time!
