So Sam's Family reunion is coming up next weekend (the 24th through 26th) in Oregon. We didn't attend last year as I had just had William and the year before we drove with Nathalie. It was an amazing trip...I found out I was pregnant with William during that trip, by peeing on a stick in a portapotty lol! Anyways, I digress... This year we bought plane tickets, figuring that with 2 kids it'll be so much easier to fly for 3 hours rather than drive for 20! 4 days ago we found out that Sam will not be going with us; long story short there isn't proper coverage at work and well he's the boss so he can't go. Nathalie is SOOOOO excited about getting on an airplane, the last time that she flew she was 4 months old and I am pretty sure that she doesn't really remember that. I am nervous to fly alone with two kids. I am nervous to camp with two kids sans hubby. I am excited to go see his family and to camp; but, I just wish he could go with us.

That's too funny about the portopotty!

DH says we're not flying with our only child again until years from now (DD doesn't travel well - everyone on the airplane looks like they want to shoot poison darts at us). But I keep hearing all these great stories lately about how others' kids were well-behaved and charming on the plane.

Athena loves to fly and has always been great! I totally think you can do it! I have a portable DVD player though that we only bring out for long trips. Let me know if you'd like to borrow it!!!What a bummer about Sam though. I may be taking a vacation alone with the kids but it is because chris won't go, not that he can't!!!
