No Poop or Throw-up Travel Day!!!
We made it to Reno yesterday afternoon after having probably our easiest travel experience of our lives. We left our house around 7:45am. Where Shane slept in until 7:15 (that hasn't happened in months!), we almost had to wake him up. He even told us as we were heading to the car that he had "pooped". We've been working on that for months, too! There was no traffic and we got to the parking garage in half the time we had allotted. After getting to the airport that felt just about empty, we spent a brief few minutes checking into Southwest and then another brief amount of time getting through security. I think the highlight of our flight was the TSA agents that were incredibly nice and accommodating. One allowed Shane's unopened juice box to go through and another TSA person had the stroller opened and ready to go for us. He even asked us if we knew about the play area around the corner. Kenny and I kept looking at each other wondering what world we had ended up in! We ended up being through security and at the play area before 9am! Amazing!
Shane did fantastic on the flight. He needed a diaper change minutes before we got on, but the timing worked out great. He was pretty anxious on the take off. But he soothed himself by sorta humming and talking to himself under his breath. I felt bad for him, but was happy to see him work himself through it.
If you've ever heard any of our past travel experiences, you know that this was a much needed break! Thanks travel world for making it a super easy trip! Lets hope the way home goes half as smooth!
