Airplanes & A Birthday

First of all: Happy Birthday to McKenzie, the most genuinely kind, smart, and fun little kid I know! As I mentioned in a previous post, we’re spending her birthday in California to visit Grandpa Jeff, who she hadn’t seen since Christmas. We’re having a little party for her tonight, (with her annual dirtcake!) so I’ll let everyone know how that goes later.

We got to Cali late last night (well for her it was like 9pm, an hour past her bedtime…but it was only 7pm here). Traveling with an almost-4-year-old is so much easier than even 3. She hadn’t been on a plane in a year, so she was pretty excited, and we lucked out and got the window seat on both flights. She was SO good and pretty much just watched movies on the iPad the whole time. She has TV restrictions at home, but definitely not when we’re traveling…I’m not trying to make my life miserable. Haha.

Anyhow, she wore this outfit for the plane ride (pictured above). Layering is perfect for travel because if if kids get too hot, just take off the jacket (which did actually happen this trip…the plane was like a sauna). Needless to say, I was very glad she wore this outfit. Oh, and I would never use those air vents that blow in your face to cool off…I hate those…not only do they dry out my contacts, but they make me paranoid I’m blowing other people’s germs in my face. And I’m no germaphobe. Recycled air just grosses me out, okay? Haha. ;)
