Late April, Early May, we ventured onto a plane w/ abram to head to Utah for a visit to my sister and her family. The kid had been on a plane once before as a baby and was an angel. This trip however, I was wondering how it would go. He loves airplanes but being on and in one - i wasn't so sure. The Philadelphia airport has the cutest play area for little kids to do all sorts of fun airport play activities. He loved it! and he really enjoyed looking at the planes too.

The flight out was - well - good and bad. I'll start with the bad. We first stepped on and the kid was excited saying Airplane!! then once we sat down in cramped coach, he turned to me and said "All Done Mama! All Done!" ahh, if it were only that simple. From that moment, thru takeoff, and until we got to a cruising altitude, he was That Child. The one thats torturing every other person on the plane and whose parents are trying desperately to shut them up (that was us!). Once we got to a cruising altitude he passed out asleep. Later he was perfectly content watching his DVD's so that went really well. Ahhh...

But then we landed! Whew. and abram finally was reunited with his cousins:) Emily was so so sweet with the little ones and the two 2 year olds had a ball playing and chatting it up with one another!

We got to see lots of sites, eat some great food, and relax too! Here is a pic of us in Park City. Yes, it snowed there!!

The flight home was a whole other story - thank goodness. The kid was completely content and even slept a good bit, thanks to a travel pillow from aunt vicki and family:) and a few other goodies they gave him for an early bday gift were especially helpful too!

Only problem with going to see family is leaving, saying your goodbyes, and missing them even more once you get back home!
