Plane ride to Pasco

We left our house around 7:45 and made it to the airport at 9 after dropping our car off at the park and ride. We had 2 hours until our flight so went off in search of breakfast. I was happy to find a breakfast sandwich made with a whole wheat english muffin and turkey bacon. Bob and Olivia settled on McDonalds. (I really wanted steel cut oats from Jamba Juice, but they were $7.50, who pays that much for oatmeal???) Olivia was a hungry girl and ate 2 of her 3 pancakes. It was funny to see all of the people eating Cafe Rio for breakfast.

We still had an hour and a half to wait after breakfast. We took turns walking around with Olivia. On my turn she walked up and down the isles of people waiting. She would walk over to random people and say HEY, as loud as she could. Most everyone talked to her for a minute before I got her moving again. If they had food or a drink, she tried her hardest to get it.

We bought her a little coloring book with the magic marker that turns the pages different colors. Ya, she was interested in that for 5 seconds. But don't worry over the week most everyone took a turn coloring a page or two.

The flight there was busy, we were pulling everything out of the diaper bag to keep her happy. She loved playing a few games on the iPad, eating fruit snacks, and ripping the pages out of the airplane magazine. Usually the short flight is relaxing. I don't know if I will ever be able to say that again.
