First Flight

SO I am a nervous flyer, Yes hard to believe I know, but I like to be the full 90 minutes early to the airport because I want to KNOW I am not going to cut it too close! I have done that before and it isn't fun! Any who we left a little later and that meant a closer call on getting to the airport! Sadly I left a delicious bag of snacks that mom Hamilton had put together for us, and was really wishing i had that Carmel corn on the flight:) Anyway, it turns out our flight was going to be like 10 minutes late so we made it in time and all was well. However there was a maintenance problem so it kept us waiting for a bit. Around 10:20 our flight was scheduled to leave at 9:50 we were informed that our plane was not safe and they would let us know shortly if they would rebook us or just use a different airplane. Luckily option 2 was the way they went and our new plane would board about 11:20, so we grabbed something to eat, and they boarded early, luckily we didn't miss it though we were the last ones on the plane:) The flight wasn't full and it was one of those planes with the two seats on one side and three on the other, I asked the flight attendant if we would be able to sit on the side with the two seats, but she got us a better deal and moved the 3rd person off our row so Leland got his own seat, but he sat with me most of the time, these pictures are from the times when he was on his own dinner! He slept through take off and for about the first 30 minutes of the flight... Fantasticthen he just sat and babbled at the women behind us on the way down, the pressure didn't seem to bother him even with his cold. He did manage to blow some snot bubbles it was pretty fun!
Anyway he wasn't sure of his gram at first and even tried to bink her once or twice, but today is a new story! HE LOVES his Gram!


This was one of his new toys its one of those shaky ones, Brian kept putting it close to his mouth so he could bite on it and then making it shake

and it tickled his nose....
