Leavin' on a jet plane!

Leavin' on a jet plane! That's right! Today we flew to San Antonio to visit Eric's sister and her family. We haven't flown since Emmett was 6 months old, so to us, this was a big endeavor!
Do you think we brought enough luggage?
When we landed in TX it was almost midnight. We could not have asked for better behavior from the kiddos. All 3 were sound asleep when we landed.
We collected our gazillion bags of luggage while the children remained sleeping.
We loaded onto the rental car shuttle, unloaded off the rental car shuttle and picked up our rental car all while the kids were sound asleep.
The kids did not wake until we put them in their car seats. Praise the Lord for safe and peaceful travels.

On a separate note, we flew Southwest. What a great airline! Leather seats, 2 free bags a car seat and a stroller per person (child). We got beverages and snacks. Best of all the flight attendants were happy and seemed to be enjoying their job. On our second flight, the attendant was absolutely hilarious - making all sorts of witty comments and playing goofy music from his iPod. Next time we fly, we'd definitely chose Southwest again!
