We’re here! We made it to MI. It was a very long day of travel starting with a 3:30 am wake up. Our daughter, Emma who is 3 1/2, did exceptionally well. Both my husband and I commented frequently to one another at how easy she is to travel with. She has flown a ton starting at 9 months so I think that has definitely helped.
Our son, Landen who is 18 months did well but was definitely a challenge. Landen is a mover and very extremely aware of new environments, so I was definitely worried about the flight. To make matters worse, we were all the way in the back you know the row that smells like urine with no windows and the sound of the plane vibrating through your entire body? Yup, it made the flight much more memorable.
Wrangling an highly active and irritable toddler in a confined space is super exhausting.
Thankfully, we decided to go to my sister and brother-in-law’s house outside of Detroit before making the 2 1/2 hour drive to Grand Rapids. The chance to run outside, play with new toys, and eat a home cooked meal gave us the needed energy and patience 🙂 to drive to our final destination.
Well, now that you got the low dow on our flight back to Grand Rapids how about getting the details on this delicious dinner recipe?
