{over the clouds: little man & sammie the manatee}

Today started at 4am. Yay! Got to Tampa by 530, on our flight to Chicago at 7. Saying good bye to my parents was reallyreallyreally hard. But…we had a wonderful time together. They are planning a visit to us in May & I can’t wait :)

SO now we are in the middle of an 8 hour layover at O’Hare.

We tried to tough it out in the terminals, food court & play area but my good natured little guy had enough & flipped out. If he could have said you-know-what-off to me, he would have. I wouldn’t have blamed him.

$50 dollars later we are hanging in the airline lounge with space, quiet, comfy chairs, a bar & internet & let me tell you- it’s worth every penny! We spoke to Hans on the phone & that made it all better too, of course.

Once we are settled I’ll be working on catching up on emails, blogs, getting some orders mailed out & unpacking the ridiculous amount of stuff we are carrying with us. O wait till Hans sees us at baggage claim…

    Love that photo! And ugh, makes me dread the lengthy layovers on our upcoming trip to NZ. It used to be pretty cruisey layover-wise, but all the airline cuts have made the connections practically non-existent! “All part of the journey” will be my mantra. Oh yeah, and I’m stocking up on simple, new-to-her toys for the trip.
