When I last left you we were making our way over to TSA security. I like the new way they have the lines; one for families needing extra help/time; one for casual travelers and one for expert travelers. That way I didn’t feel like we were holding up any business travelers with our caravan. DH and I had discussed the day before an action plan for who was taking what thru security and in which order. Ummmm…lets just say that only one of us remembered that action plan and it was…….me. Anyways….we got thru the x-ray screening fine but I have a bag of toddler food/juice to declare. TSA will let you take it on board with you if it’s passes the no bomb test. I had 4 juice boxes (2 were frozen) 1 apple sauce and 1 yogurt. My thoughts originally were that I was worried that we would get stuck on the plane on the runway for hours on end. Remember those horror stories from last winter? I had a friend stuck on a plane on the ground for 6 hours. The yogurt wouldn’t pass the swabbing test……so both DH and I got padded down! What a waste of time….I finally told the guy that yogurt wasn’t that important, just throw it away. A little aside about the TSA agents…the guy who was testing the toddler food was the only friendly one of the bunch. The rest of them were sour-faced….it was like they were anticipating the grumps that would deal with later in the day and had already decided to be cranky about it. I know it’s a tough job but it wasn’t even 6am yet….lighten up!

We got to the gate about 6am and it was a gate at the end of the terminal so we were able to let Liam run around and play a bit before he had to be in his car seat for over 3 hours.



Boarding was uneventful. With Southwest, families can board between the A and B groups if they have a child under 4 with them. I have to laugh at the people that just end to push in front of me in line…..hello! The plane is big….you’ll get a seat and you’ll get one in the same row whether you board before me or after me. DH got the car seat buckled in next to the window for Liam, I got the middle seat and DH got the aisle. We departed the gate on time at 7:10am.



(I don't know why is looks dark outside because the sun was up at that point)

Up next….how would the flight go for a toddler who had been up since 4am, a pregnant Mom trapped in the middle seat and a DH who suffers from air/motion sickness???????

Oh, this has the potential to go so wrong so quickly! But I am going to think positive and assume it all went according to plan!

That sounds wonderful! Great way to really maximize the potential and get some space that will be enjoyed and well-used.

I'll admit. Your last post makes me nervous! I'm worried about how you all faired!

You know that feeling you have right before something really bad is going to happen? Yeah, that's what I am feeling for you and your plane ride right now.

Rut roh, George! I know the trip title and all but I'm going to assume it is not a bad sign!

Well as least you know we made it back home 10 days later so it can't be all bad
