We're home, home, home and happy about it. Yesterday afternoon, our flight boarded as scheduled, taxied out to the runway and turned around. Back to the airport for maintenance...but, it only took a short while and we were on our way with a hurrah, clapping, go team go, "let's hear it for AirTran"! And I am not kidding. Anna and I were seated with 35 cheerleaders on their way home from Cheerfest. The flight did end eventually. Dad was waiting with valentine flowers for both his girls. BTW, Valentine's Day has been postponed one day. V-Day dinner and flourless chocolate cake for dear Dad; conversation hearts on cherry-chip cupcakes for the neighbors are today's itinerary.

Leaving Philly last week, there was a play area next to our departure gate. So we had a typical morning of playing and taking pictures. A travel agent came over a few times to chat with Anna, and I put her to work taking pictures.

Our flight down was pretty empty so Anna had her own seat next to me. I did hold her most of the time, but she looked so cute with her seatbelt on. She even put her little arm up on the armrest once.

The weather was lovely down there. It felt like spring and aunts were crawling all over the place.

On Thursday, Anna went out for her first afternoon tea.

On Friday, mom made a turkey and Hannah, Jenny and I made a pumpkin pie.

I'll post the rest of the pictures soon. We've got a lot to do today.


  1. Glad you weren't on this flight, huh? There would have been NO cheering...

  2. Not sure if the link worked, but here's the gist:
    CBS) QUEENS JetBlue Airlines apologized to dozens of passengers who were kept sitting on planes at New York's JFK Airport for 10 hours or more without ever taking off.
    Yes, 10 HOURS! Can you imagine? Hope there weren't many little ones on that flight!

  3. Welcome home you cuties!

  4. Yikes. I am so thankful we were not on those flights. I don't know what we would have done. Probably something drastic like sweet-talking the emergency exit row sitters and taking Anna for her first trip down a slide.
