Well, this time the flight went off without a hitch. Our morning was pretty uneventful, with the exception of Alex climbing into bed with me about 5:30am and not going back to sleep until at least 6:30, maybe as late as 7am. We crawled out of bed at 8:30. By 10:30 we were starting to get ready to go to the airport. I wanted to eat lunch before we left at 12:30 for our 2:40 flight. We got through ticketing and security quickly, again with no line at ticketing and a short line at security. Unfortunately, when I got the DVD player out for Alex in the airport, it was dead. Instead, Alex entertained himself by pushing the stroller around.
The he read his four Curious George books. Fortunately, it was only about an hour and a half wait. They boarded 15 minutes early (thankfully I had already hit the restroom!). We took off at least 10 minutes early and got into Milwaukee early. We arrived around 2:45 local time. Since Alex was asleep, I waited for everyone else to get off before I followed. The stewardess helped me get the carseat/stroller off the plane because I was carrying a sleeping Alex. The guy at the bottom of the stairs that took it from her helped turn it back into a stroller. I deposited Alex and headed into the airport. I called Eric and he picked us up. It’s good to be home!
Thank you Olya, for the loan of the carseat/stroller. That really is the best invention ever when traveling!
