First flight!

Today was the day we began our exciting journey! This was the first time either Lael or Jaden had flown on an airplane! (Okay, so that's not entirely correct -- Lael flew to England with us when she was 18 months old, but she didn't remember that trip!)

We had SUCH a great time! The kids enjoyed every moment of the day! Some of the highlights were:

  • getting to sit in the plane's cockpit
  • seeing Lake Erie as we circled Cleveland Airport
  • walking on the moving sidewalks (once we got over the initial fear of stepping on them!)
  • pulling fun activities out of Mommy's backpack
  • watching for our suitcase at the baggage claim area
  • playing hide-and-seek with other young travelers in Cleveland during our layover
  • seeing Aunt Jennifer when she came to pick us up at the airport

Probably the only thing we didn't enjoy was the three hour layover in Cleveland before continuing on to New Hampshire (at least Mommy thought it was a long three hours!) But all in all it was a fantastic start to our vacation in New England!
