The trip went better than I could ever expected.
Well, except for sitting on the tarmac in Detroit for over an hour while they deiced the plane.
Or for getting to Atlanta in the heat of the lunch hour.
Or for the fact that I was wearing fleece when we landed in 81-degree Jacksonville.
Except for all that, it was a breeze.
Oh, I kid. I mean, all those things are true, but I was just trying to sound dramatic. Really, the trip made for a long day, but so many things happened along the way to make my life easier.
The lines for Delta air were a fraction of the length of the Northwest lines, so check in wasn't a hassle. Even though they had to search my bag and ask a gazillion questions about the inner workings of Dr. Brown's bottle, they were really nice about the whole process. And on both of my flights, I had an older, grandmotherly women next to me who was more than happy to hold and play with and entertain Seth.
And once we finally arrived in St. Augustine, we were greeted with love and hugs that had been stored up for 6+ months.
And after a good night's sleep (through the night, in a new place - yea!), we are up, fed, and ready to enjoy the day.
Hope you are all enjoying the company of those you love today.
