It's a Plane!

A week ago Claire went on her first airplane ride.  I try to visit my aunt and uncle each summer, but with Claire's OHS in June, it didn't work out this summer.  So, when they decided to have an anniversary party last weekend, it was too good to pass up. 

Claire and I left the house bright and early and made the two hour drive to the airport.  She slept through the drive, and was ready for a bottle as soon as we got settled on the plane.  She napped for a short period, but spent most of the flight just playing.  I made sure to give her bottles as we took off and landed, and she did great.  As we waited for her stroller and car seat, we had many passengers on the plane remark on how good she was!

We had a great weekend visiting with family, even though the weekend weather was a little cool.  We didn't get quite as much time on the boat as I would have liked, but Claire wasn't a huge fan of the breeze on the lake and seemed to be fine with just one boat ride.  We hope to make it back out next summer, and hopefully she'll be ready for more time on the boat and some swimming!


  1. What an angel! My son particularly was an absolute nightmare on airplane rides. I shudder when I think about all the fussing and screaming he did, until he was about 5. Those poor passengers. I'm glad Claire's first big trip was a success!

  2. Isn't it nice when they're good on planes? We have an upcoming trip and I am wondering how Mr. Wiggles is going to do. Glad you both had fun. Claire is as cute as ever.

  3. looks like so much fun enjoying time out on the boat - glad claire was so good for her first plane ride :) what fun!

  4. Maybe I need to have her help me stay calm on my plane ride next Saturday. I'm scared out of my mind!


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear what is on your mind.
