We made it to La Crosse last night, safe and sound. The kids were perfect travelers. So g!ad I spent so much time fretting about the trip. Good use of energy.
We had three seats with extra legroom, and Adam spent a lot of time standing or playing on the floor. Ellie sat quietly watching movies or coloring. Even with the nintey minute delay (sitting at the gate) they hung tough. We had time to get a happy meal in Chicago and then the kids ran around the seating area. Adam found fries he'd dropped and ate them off the floor before I could stop him. Now he has diseases. Ellie spent the flight into La Crosse coloring, and Adam whined until he fell asleep.
It was so nice to see Gigi and Grizz and Sara at the airport. And the terminal is so small that while I waited for our gate checked bag, I could watch Ellie walk out to them. And they were both thrilled to see grandma Rosie. Adam is less thrilled about sleeping in the fun cage, but you can't win them all!
