Here we are on 'vacation' in Colorado. Imagine the word 'vacation' in air quotes since personally, I prefer that my children don't wake up at 5:00am on vacation. Here's hoping everyone adjusts to the time change before we have to go back to the East Coast.
We survived the plane flight unscathed and though I know a few folks who have had bad experiences flying Southwest Airlines, we were quite pleased with how helpful the flight staff was and how understanding our surrounding passengers turned out to be. (Think of a five-year-old forgetting NOT to kick the seat in front of a him and of a toddler confined to a seat who is used to being in motion from the time she wakes up in the morning to when she goes to sleep at night.)
