We've been waiting for Spring Break for months now. We knew we were going to CA to visit Trek's family & the kids could hardly wait. Of course we HAD to fly since we live on the complete opposite coast & the kids were SO excited to be on an airplane again. This was Craiger & Canyon's first time on an airplane too. It was SO fun.
Of course our first flight reminded me of why I despise flying so much. . . our flight was delayed 2 hours & 15 minutes. We had a layover in Chicago that was supposed to last 2 hours & 30 minutes meaning that there was a possibility we would miss our connecting flight from Chicago to LAX. Ugh. The kids were bored after the first hour of delayed sitting at the airport time.
Our plane did finally arrive & it was tiny. The boys were SO excited to hop on.
It was such a small plane that there was only 1 seat on the sides, meaning all the kids had to sit by themselves. Yikes. Luckily the plane ride was great & nobody had any issues
(other than Craiger & Bladen having to go potty in that tiny bathroom 6 times in 2 hours.)
We landed in Chicago 10 minutes before our next flight took off. Our 2nd flight was all the way on the opposite side of the airport as well. We knew for sure we weren't going to make it. Luck was on our side though. Even though the flight had already boarded, they knew our previous flight was late, but had arrived so they didn't shut the doors until we got on. I was counting my blessings at that point. We were running through that airport like crazy people. It reminded me of the scene in Home Alone where the family almost misses their flight to Paris & they're sprinting through the airport. HILARIOUS.
However, because we were so late, we didn't get to eat lunch/dinner during our layover as we had originally planned. We ended up having to BUY food on the plane which is completely over priced & disgusting. That's $60 we'll never see again. ha ha ha. But at least our bellies were full, we were happy, & we were on our way to Opa & Oma's house.
