One day while driving along with the kiddos, we passed two women running together on the sidewalk. Evelyn was all excited and yelled, "Look mommy, cool runner girls like you!!" :)

We made it!

Well -- we made it. Both kids did great on the long flight from Seattle to Cleveland. Evelyn was up WAY past bedtime (our flight didn't leave until 11:15 PM), but as soon as they turned off the lights, she was out. Noah took a bottle on take-off and landing and slept the entire time in between. We had two minor mishaps along the flight though...

1. Noah had a small blow-out while he was sleeping. How this little guy can poop like that and not wake up is a mystery to me. I didn't discover the blowout until after we landed. He slept in my Hotsling the entire time.

2. Evelyn had a similar experience -- but a funny story. Here is the conversation between Trav and I right before boarding the plane
Me: Do you think we should change Evelyn's diaper before we board? She feels a little wet...
Trav: No, I think she will be fine.
Me: Are you sure? Sometimes she pees so much that she wets herself in the middle of the night.
Trav: Why did you ask me if you already had your mind made up?
I was a little mad at Trav's short response, and didn't want to seem like the overbearing mom, so we boarded the plane without changing her diaper. Needless to say, about an hour into the flight, Evelyn pees right through her diaper and wets herself and her dad (she is sitting on his lap). I felt a little sorry for Travis, but I couldn't help but giggle to myself a little :)

The second flight was short -- only about an hour. We made that one with no problems, too. It was actually quite comical. Our flight attendant was about 21 years old. She was talking about just how hung-over she was and how little sleep she got last night. It got to the point in her speech when she is supposed to introduce the pilots, and she goes "Your pilots for this flight are... I can't remember... it is way too early in the morning... but rest assured there are two men up front flying this plane" I seriously doubt she is going to win the flight attendant of the month award any time soon :)

More pictures and updates to come... stay tuned.

Your post had me cracking up. Cambrie always seems to have blowouts at awful times too. That should also teach Travis to question you...hehehehe

Glad you made it safe and sound even the the attendant couldn't remember the pilots name. She seemed to recover quite well.

I will say this... I love a flight attendant with humor... even hung over humor! We had one that was so-o funny and that was the best flight EVER!! If I could schedule all my flights based on when he was working then I would - just because everyone on the plan was cracking up.

Glad to hear you all made it safe and sane. ;) Have a great visit in Michigan!
