Our vacation started with me leaving work at 3:00 pm. Matt had gotten off work at 2:00 so we was already home and the kids typically get home around 3:10. I got home right when the kids did and we all quickly changed clothes. I had already packed all the luggage in the car so we were ready to go!
Security wasn’t too bad and by the time we got through it and then had dinner it was 5:45 and we boarded at 6:30. The kids changed into jammies and played a bit and then we boarded!
The kids and I all sat together (it was a 3 and 3 across setup) and Matt sat on the aisle across from us. Things didn’t go great for our seating arrangement here on out… A lady with a toddler plopped down next to him taking up the window and middle seat (we assumed that she had bought them both). Her baby had a weird eye infection that was dripping everywhere and was screaming. A few minutes later a little boy came up and talked to her and we realized he was her son and was sitting alone. Matt offered to switch with him (he was in the very back row). Shortly after Matt left seats another lady came down and said she had the window seat and it turned into drama all around (the new lady got moved eventually). I tried not to pay attention but they were a major pain all flight. Her baby cried a lot (ok that’s understandable), threw things at our general direction, the mom was generally unaware of what was going on- including at one point falling asleep and her baby CRAWLING down the aisle by herself. Ugh.
We were off the plane around 10:30, waited for Matt to get out of there and then went to get our luggage which was already waiting for us on the carousel which was nice. We got in the car rental shuttle about 5 later and had car in hand about 15minutes after that. We drove to the Hyatt and got checked in right away. We all tried to sleep but were pretty wired. I crashed around 12:30 am (everyone else was asleep by 12:00 or so) and we had gotten in our room at 11:40.
