We left for Ohio on Tuesday afternoon. Every time we have flown with the kids we have taken the earliest flight possible. It makes sense because our kids get up so early and we can just get going, but it is a long day, too. This time things worked out to do an afternoon flight. I wasn't so sure, but it was great. It actually got pushed back an hour later than we had booked it and the kids got to nap before we left. We just had a normal morning at home and weren't rushed.
At the airport we take the bus from long term parking to the terminals. The kids really love this.
Once we got checked in our flight was delayed so Aaron and I went in search of a snack. We came back with pizza.
It was evening when we got in. Dad took us to dinner and then it was late when we got home so the kids went down pretty quickly. They had a few moments to play and draw and then it was off to rest.
