ahhh...let's just take a few moments to appreciate the glamour of air travel with young children. Changes of clothes for everyone? Check. Daughter picking out goldfish to eat that is stuck between airplane seats? Check. Proud potty power boy using the facilities 4 times on a 4-hour flight, just as our aisle-seatmate is dozing off? Check. All in all, this one was a very easy flight for us frequent fliers.
And the props totally go to beeswax modeling sticks. $1/each at our local environmentally-friendly store Solutions...and they each get us at least a half hour of play. Which on the plane equals about 2 1/2 elephant years. The temptation to give in to airport branded toys/fastfood/dvd world is strong, but yum, the smell of beeswax on an airplane.
We got a perfect view straight into the Grand Canyon...Isaiah's first glimpse when he could actually appreciate it. And the Mississippi River.
Oh yeah...hour plus naps for both children at the same time.
Like I said, an easy flight.
