Airports

My first international trip and I spend most of the first day in airport madness. We woke up a little early, finished packing and headed off to Washington Dulles. Well, apparently we were supposed to be at REAGAN!! Oops. So with an hour and a half till our flight, we hopped in a cab and went the 35 miles to Reagan Washington National Airport. (Note on the map that we started in Wheaton... oh and we could have just taken the metro to Reagan!) Despite a really really slow check-in agent, we made our flight with some time to spare.


The airport fun didn't end there though. Miami got shut down for 4 hours! When we got there, we had to circle for about an hour. Daddy's head was killing him, but I was having fun playing with the kid in front of me. Luckily we landed before the airport was closed. We weren't that lucky though. We had a 3 hour layover which turned into a 7 hour layover. I know the Miami airport carpet pretty well now. Luckily for me, there were lots of people and kids to watch!


There were actually TOO many people and kids to watch. I was exhausted but didn't give into sleep until we got on the plane, sometime around 10 pm!

It sounds like you had a great adventure. I know you will have many more of those adventures and each with lots of people to watch and kids to play with -- enjoy them all!

Sounds like you've now mastered air travel! You need to get your agents (Mom & Dad) to read their itineraries better! Feel free to teach Grandpa Ken how to handle those take offs and landings!
