I love me some Southwest!! Todd and I drove two hours to Jackson, MS, just so we could get the straight shot flight to Orlando. And because it was Southwest, we got to choose our seats. We lucked up and got three togehter and mine right across the aisle from them.
I think Gabs may just end up being my travelling buddy someday. She loved every minute of it!!
She would say, "We bout to take off, mama". And, "No more grass, mama. We are in the clouds." She hasn't flown since she was 6 months old, so I was surprised at how well she did and how much she understood of the whole process.
She was just an old pro at travelling.
They both did pretty well. Linda Lou had just given them cool backpacks for Christmas, so they were both loaded down with "just in case" activities to keep them preoccupied.
Neither one of them ever even tapped those activities, though, because they both had headphones and electronic devices!!
If you don't have a small child these days, let me just be the one to tell you... they were BORN INTO the electronic age, so they know straight up how to operate an ipad, iphone, get apps, download music, search itunes, watch cartoons, etc. Or at least Ellie does!!
Robin loaded all the Max and Ruby cartoons onto my ipad, so Gabs had something to keep her preoccupied during the flight.
Ellie was either rocking it out to Justin Bieber, Adele, Rhianna, or Katie Perry. Those are her current favorites. It is HYSTERICAL watching her deal with all her musical selections!!
It was an awesome day for travel!!
And once we arrived, I thought it was just the cutest thing having my teeny tots wait for their luggage at the carousel like they knew what was up!!
Ellie in her pink Northface backpack!
And Gabs sporting that cute purple hat and refusing to let us carry all the luggage. She pulled this one.
Even though it looked bigger than her, it was actually pretty light. It was full of princess dresses for them to wear to the parks or to entertain the grandparents with at night at home.
They were turning some heads as they strolled through that airport like they owned the place!!
