Flying alone with 2 kids!

Some called me brave, some called me stupid....I called it, SUCCESS!!!

I traveled from New Orleans (which was about an hour drive from us in Baton Rouge) to Raleigh, North Carolina to visit my parents. It was just me and the kids and I must say, it went pretty well!

The flight up there Kaisley had a couple moments where she was "THAT BABY" that was crying, but Brookston was amazingly well behaved...thanks to the Delta cookies and milk/juice from a big boy cup (which he never uses, it's always a sippy)!

The flight home, Kaisley did a little better, Brookston was a little worse...but overall, SUCCESS!!!

Some highlights from our trip to visit Nana (currently being called Nina) and Papa:

Brookston made his very own drum and hat

He found the other drums much more entertaining though...

There were drums everywhere...

And tons of other musical instruments!

These were "peas and carrots"

And planting veggies in the garden!

Water play...Brookston's favorite!

Then we found a great kids place called "Planet Child"

And last was a visit with my 2 friend's from college, Laura and Lian. I got to finally meet baby Evan and introduce them to Kaisley!

You go girl! I'm afraid to fly with 1 baby and 2 adults. Much less 2 babies and 1 adult! Glad you had a good trip!

I say brave! Wow! You go girl! Glad it worked out and you had fun! My daughter is almost 2 and I haven't flown with her yet. Just started driving long distances again, in fact! She is doing so much better with traveling now, fortunately!
