My sweet boy....maybe he will come home after training and not eat my coffee table. 🙄
Greg and I both worked today from home. We had not done anything in advance to prep for the trip. It was definitely a race to try to pack for the trip to ensure we had warm clothes but also things appropriate for Easter Mass, Hamilton and of course be extremely portable.
We left the house with hardly any time to spare.....we thought. Greg and I both got a notification to our phones at the same time and upon glancing down we both said “Sh!t” simultaneously. Jinx!!! Logan exclaimed from the back. Yep, flight delayed. Seems maybe we hadn’t needed to rush quite so much.
Brooks saw an opportunity and wasn’t going to let it pass. “Can we head to the airport viewing area at CVG?” Uh, sure.
Brooks started researching why we were delayed. I heard discussion about the “Misery Map” and the fact that all incoming flights to Newark had been grounded due to low visibility. He then went on to clearly describe the cloud cover and X feet and clearing something something something and if the pilots are comfortable blah blah blah. I don’t even know what he said but I continue to be both amazed at the things he knows and comforted that he’s with me.
Who knew there was such a thing? Oh yeah, Brooks.
We cut that close. Arrival at 4:48pm! Twelve minutes of good viewing. Only there isn’t much air traffic.
We got out and took a quick glance.
Those are the exciting planes from what I gather.
I’ve seen enough, mainly because it’s cold. Brooks of course has not.
Happy in the warm car.
Could stay all day.....
Around this time we dawns on basically everyone in the car that they have forgotten their coats. I grabbed a vest on my way out the door (which was intentional over a coat.) No one else remembered theirs.
Greg asked if there was any place we could go buy a coat. Friends, Kentucky friends I welcome you back to the 1990’s.
Oh the times I dug and dig through mislabeled sizes, rips, and stains to find all the best deals. As soon as we stepped inside I was immediately envious that I couldn’t shop here for hours gathering all kinds of deals. Coats however are not in season. $0.99 bathing suits are.
We did score a coat for Maddie for $4.99. She’s not happy about it but for that price I can leave it behind in NYC.
Pretty sure she’s gonna thank me later....I’m waiting for it.
Rental car has been returned. We enjoyed an uneventful shuttle ride to the airport. Thankfully we are all TSA precheck so we should fly through security.....except we have Polar Bear and he always causes us issues.
No issues!! They took and extra look but no additional screening required! Logan was so excited he wanted to run up this escalator.
He can just wait for me at the top.....
And now this....
Clearing my blog is getting the blame even though I didn’t start until well after the delays started occurring.
