Day 8

Day 8 was days are always interesting, right? Well, after a discussion with DH on when we should leave from Grandma and Grandpa's house, I fought for leaving at 7am (or earlier). We ended up leaving at 6:45am. Our flight was departing at 11:20am. Plenty of time, right? It was a Friday, and not only was it a Friday during rush hour, it was a Friday during rush hour two days before the Super Bowl was in town, and it was raining like crazy. You would think that folks in Florida would understand how to drive in, that wasn't the case this day. The traffic was horrendous--and according to the traffic report on the radio, there were 20+ accidents on the metro Tampa interstates/highways. We actually just got off the interstate and drove the "backroads" to the airport. In doing so, actually drove right by the Raymond James Stadium--unfortunately, our camera was way in the back of the pictures. After a bit of a stressful drive to the airport, we made it. Luckily, getting thru security was no problem...They saw us coming with a double stroller, and bags/bottles/junk and let us go thru the handicapped lane. We are handicapped alright!!! Once there, we had lunch and let Bug play in the play area. Back on the plane, heading home... (sniff, sniff....sob) The best thing about flying with Midwest Airlines...yummy, warm chocolate chip cookies!! Check out that fistful of cookies!!
Another awesome thing about our kids...LM slept all but the last 15 minutes of the flight. Taking off and descending didn't bother him at all. As soon as LM woke up, Bug layed her head on my lap and fell asleep. There were only a few times (during some turbulence) that Bug got a look of concern on her face and said..."hold me". They were both angels..
