Flying is Fun, Flying is Fun

So here’s the thing: flying with young kids is either really, really, really great or really, really, really bad. It truly is that simple. For our roundtrip from Shanghai to the States we upgraded to Business Class for what could be the last time for a long time to come. This is the last time we only pay 20% of a full fare – from here on out it will be 80% of a full fare for both girls! You can see from the look on Andy’s face that he was sooooo looking forward to the flight. Now take a look at the second photo – yes, that’s Amelia in an open seat next to him.

Looks stressful, right? :)

Amelia and Maddie rest in style!

I’ve been talking for a long time about how Maddie’s got STATUS!  I tell ya, now both of my girls are growing up lucky.  The flight across the ocean was as delightful as can be mostly because they got a good night sleep!  Gotta love those business class seats that fully recline.  I do want you to notice however WHO is sleeping in those seats.  Let’s do the math on this…. 1 father, 1 mother, 2 little girls and there are THREE seats.  Hmf!  Meelie and I shared part of the time and then Andy and Meelie shared part of the time.

Gosh, it still seems to me that our dear Maddie is STILL getting the sweet end of the deal! :)

Welcome Home Girls!
