The day after Josh's birthday, Eli and I hopped on a plane and headed to Florida to visit some of our favorite people, the Glenns! Nicki and I had planned this trip since February and both of us were very excited to see each other and for our boys to be able to play together. Ever since they moved 7 years ago (Nicki, correct me if I'm wrong) we've been able to see each other just about every year or so. This was our second time to visit them in Florida and they've been to our house a few times as well. We stay in constant contact with each other so when we see each other we always just pick up where we left off the last time we spoke. We've been friends for so long now and I'm thankful that now our boys are becoming great friends as well. We couldn't wait to spend a week with them in beautiful, sunny Florida!
Since we were going to be near Grammy and Pop's house, we had Pop drive us to the airport. We were able to spend some car time with him and we didn't have to worry about parking. Pop walked us to the security checkpoint and then prayed for us before he left.
This was Eli's second time to fly so he was very excited about being on an airplane again. I'm a nervous flyer, so I like to be at my gate WAAAAAY in advance. We got there about an hour before we needed to, but I would rather be there waiting than rushing. I've been that person who is literally running to catch her plane before and that was my worst nightmare. Waiting is much better :) While we waited for our plane to arrive, Eli played on the iPad, we ate some frozen yogurt, and I people-watched. Before we knew it, it was time to board the plane.
This kid was just a little excited about flying.
We got to our seats, settled in, and sent a picture to Josh before takeoff. Mo had to be included, too :)
The flight was a 2 hour direct flight so it didn't take long until we landed in Florida. Eli gave the flight a thumbs up. We were ready to have fun with Dan, Nicki, Jonah, and Micah. Let the Florida vacation begin!
