Little Boy and I had safe and uneventful travels this week. And let me tell you, my son is one heck of a good traveler! The trip was LONG, but we made all our connections successfully (1 just by the skin of our teeth thanks to lots of running on our part, which Little Boy thought was all great fun), we had good weather and no delays. Can one complain? And yes, I LUGGED that HUGE carseat with me on the bus and through the airports - from terminal to terminal. You see... he is so very comfortable in it - and it is FAA approved, which means he can sit in it on the airplane - so that is what we do. And then, because he is nice and comfy (and well contained, might I add) - he actually takes a nap. And this trip - he just so happened to be napping during meal time so I actually got to eat my perfectly horrible airplane food in peace and quiet and then the steward brought him his food when he woke up.
As to be expected several of the security lines weren't fun - 1 just very long and slow and the other - well, let's just say it took a bit of coaxing to get Byron the bulldozer out of Little Boy's hands and into the tote for x-raying! Oh, and 1 very HARD landing - actually one of the roughest landings I've ever had, goodness! But we came through in 1 piece and my DH met us just outside of luggage claim, on schedule! Doesn't that just make a long trip worth the while!
Nope, the trip itself wasn't bad at all... it is just the jetlag we are battling now.
