And...We're Off!!

3:30am came all too quickly, and suddenly it was a mad scramble to get up. Oh, how nice it was to just walk out of the hotel room and into the airport!! Going through security went smoothly, although time consuming, and by the time we got to the gate, it was time to start boarding. The flight attendants on our first flight were wonderful and very helpful and even presented the kids with wings from the pilot. Kailyn showing off her wings...

It was nice having TVs and movies to watch (we've always flown Northwest, with no entertainment) and Noah was very happy to watch his Treehouse the whole way (without the sound as he didn't like the headphones).
We landed in Toronto and the flight attendant called for a golf cart to take us to customs.

Once through customs, we grabbed some muffins for a quick breakfast and then it was time to board again. This flight was jam packed, so no special treatment. I thought the kids would all fall asleep, but nope...everyone was wide awake!! Soon we landed in Orlando, and were immediately greeted by our first GKTW angel, holding up a sign with Noah's name. (Apparently whoever took this picture for us didn't think Noah was that important!) She helped us get our luggage, find our rental vehicle and then left us with directions to GKTW.

  2. LOL!!! did they even notice Noah in the stroller????
