Going Back to Cali

Our family left today for a  trip up the California coast. We'll be spending nearly two weeks staying in six locations and seeing all we can see while out West. I'm going to try and do a blog post recap of the day to just have for our personal memories from the trip. 

Today after a wonderful Mother's Day morning worship service at church we piled in our van  with the Kenedy family and headed north to St Louis. We stopped at McDonalds to hit the drive thru which was pretty comical with 7 people relaying their orders to Paul. Believe it or not the whole order was right with the exception of their leaving out Mallory's sweet and sour sauce and the straws for the drinks!

We got to the airport at 3:30 for our  6:10
flight, went thru security without a hitch and settled in in the gate area. We all got a treat: Mallory and Dad got shakes at Baskin Robbins, Michael got an Auntie Anne's pretzel and I got a frappucino at Starbucks. 

The kids flew when they were little but don't remember it so this is really their first flight. They had fun exploring the airport and looking out the windows at the planes. Michael brought some binocs and is so cute looking thru those things. 

The flight was delayed but we finally took off around 8. 

Both kids wanted to sit by a window so we're on the plane now with Mallory and I on one row and Michael and Paul directly behind us. 

We're going thru Vegas and then on to San Diego tonight. They layover will be short because we left later just hoping to make our connection and get to San Diego to get our car and find our hotel. We have reservations at the King's Inn and plans to meet Paul's first cousin and her husband in the morning for breakfast at 9. 

Mallory is reading The Boxcar Children next to me. I have always loved that book!

We landed in Vegas and were informed our flight was delayed to San Diego too. No biggie. I enjoy people watching. The San Diego State baseball team is apparently on our flight out. They've been in Col Spgs playing the Air Force Academy. Won both games:)

One last note. Airport food is so outrageous. We got one sandwich, a little protein snack with a couple of boiled eggs, some cheese and nuts and a bottle of water and it was 25 smacks! Crazy.
