Philly Trip

Last Thursday my mom, S, and I packed up and headed to Philly to see our family. We got to the airport early, made it through the security check point with ease, set up shop with some chairs and a pretty clean area for S to play. She even had lunch in the airport. Finally the time arrives to board and we are delayed due to weather in Philly. Yes delayed an hour. We board, we find out we are delayed for another hour. S sleeps for 45 minutes and she wakes and gets her bottle and we finally take off. She did wonderful! We arrived 2 hours after our scheduled arrival time. If not for the delays it would have been perfect... but my sweet little angel was PERFECT on the flight!

We arrived in Philly unloaded at my Aunt Judi and Uncle Albert's and had the traditional meal, Spaghetti. Since I can remember my Mammaw always made this for dinner the night we arrived in Philly, so my Aunt continued the tradition.
Friday for lunch we met Bobbies, my grandfather, and his wife Lois and her two granddaughters for lunch downtown at Table 31. It was yummy and a lot of fun.

Saturday we packed up and headed out to my cousin Chris's house to spend some time in the pool with all the family. It was a lot of fun. It reminded me of when I was little and we would go see my grandparents and spend the days at the pool in their backyard. We drank beer, swam, grilled out and enjoyed time with the family.

Luke being such a great helper... he was soooo good with her!

Sunday we relaxed in the AM at Judi and Albert's then headed to my other Aunt's house, Aunt Pat and Uncle Dennis. Luke and Abby were there to play as well. We enjoyed playing in the kids play room, S thoroughly enjoyed the play time with the kids.

S, Luke and Abby!

Luke giving S her baba... he was so thrilled she let him hold her!

Monday we relaxed and Aunt Judi and Uncle Albert's. Bobbies came as well. We ran a few errands and S entertained us all day. She is a little girl on the move.... we are very close to standing on our own... and boy does she love it!

Tuesday we got all packed up to head home. S played, we watched, Aunt Judi and I ran a couple of errands. I even got a cheesesteak to bring home for my bro... he is super excited about eating it this weekend. (I had to freeze it, so I hope it is still good for him.) Our flight was later that night. We again go to the airport early, made it through security, fed S her dinner, finally got on the plane, and we were delayed yet again on the tar mat for an hour. AAAHHH.... S was super good, she fell right asleep and even slept through the take off, slept almost the whole flight and woke up the last hour. She was PERFECT yet again. We made up a lot of time in the air and ended up being only 30 minutes late.

Uncle Al and S... he loved sitting and watching her play!

Aunt Judi and S... her favorite thing was standing at the front door watching the cars and people walk by... it would entertain her for such a long time!

We were very happy to see Daddy, she was so HAPPY to see him, all smiles. We had a fabulous trip and we love and miss all our family in Philly. We hope to see them all again really soon!
