We made it!

We are now in North Carolina and will be heading out to the coast shortly for a week long stay at a beach house with Dave's family. Our trip here was not as smooth as we had hoped, and it was not Sophie's fault.

We flew from Salt Lake to Chicago, where we were supposed to have a 1 hour layover before connecting to Raleigh. While in Chicago, however, Southwest's entire computer system crashed so our 1 hour layover turned into a 4 hour layover and 3 of those hours were spent on the plane just sitting at the gate - not an ideal situation when traveling with a baby. We finally arrived at our hotel at 4:30 am this morning and promptly crashed in the bed. Dave and I are sooo tired right now and feel like we did a whole body workout even though all we did was sit, but we're glad we made it!

Sophie did awesome and was pleasant for 98% of the trip

Our flight had 2 empty seats and we were lucky enough to get one of them and Sophie was able to spend the majority of the flight asleep - huge blessing!!

Glad you made it! I think our children must be bad luck. Anne has flown with me only a few times and we've had a 4 hour delay and a 3 hour delay. Not fun at all...
