Da Plane

Although today is the official start of our trip to Tahiti, I don't know if I could actually consider this a vacation day...

Get dropped off at O'Hare International Airport to catch da plane to Los Angeles. Our flight was at 6:30am and since ORD is such a crazy airport it was way too early. Tehani was very excited to not have to "dress up" to fly today--they majority of the time that the kids travel, they fly on my mom's buddy passes (which means dressy clothes for da plane)

Arrive at LAX and wait for da plane to Tahiti. We had at least a 6 hour layover which is a long time to hang out in an airport. With all of this time on our hands, Norm even walked down to the In & Out Burger thats a mile away from the airport (it's not like he had anything else to do!) and brought us all back some lunch. Yum!

Get on da plane for the 8 hour plan ride to Tahiti. Cynthia had been a little worried about how Charlotte was going to fare on her first trans-oceanic flight and she is a natural! I ended up with a seat by myself (which is much more relaxing that having to keep Thing 1 and Thing 2 from kicking the seats in front of them!)

Next stop, Tahiti!!
