flying solo

Less than three days ago I was complaining about how hard it is to take two kids to the grocery store. L either wants to squeeze in the crawlspace under the cart, ram it into the nearest shelf, or climb inside and build yogurt towers. J just cries and finds new ways to twist around in the seat while getting his foot stuck in the leg holes and grabbing my hair every time I lean too close.

Naturally, I'm now considering flying cross-country just the three of us. I haven't quite figured out who gets to walk, who gets to be carried, if a stroller will be involved, or if I can just special order one of those zippy little golf carts to transport us around. The good news is that I found an airline that has a direct flight. Despite the predictable tantrums and Cheerios spills, I figure that I can put up with 3 hours and 4 minutes of just about anything. The question is, can the people sitting next to us (and in front of us, behind us, and all the way down the aisle from us)?

Joy Ride

John isn't walking yet without support, but that doesn't seem to slow him down.

The stairs were my favorite place to read, too.
