Bart's brother, Bret and his family, have been living in New Mexico for a little over a year, and we miss them like crazy! So, Bart found a conference to attend for his continued medical education in New Mexico so that he could visit them. I decided to tag along, and, since Krew is still free to fly, he got to come with! Sadly, the other two boys had to stay behind, since they had just started school, and because plane tickets are nearly $500 right now!
Bart went out there on Wednesday, and Krew and I headed out early Friday morning. I was nervous about flying with an almost two-year old, so I packed my iPad, coloring books, a new activity book, cards, cars, snacks, stickers, and candy. I was so prepared! Well, the first flight from here to Minneapolis was less than an hour, and Krew looked out the window for 78% of the flight. He did not need any of the distractions/entertainment/food I packed for him. I was happy and relieved that the first leg of our trip went so smoothly.
Then, came my most dreaded part: a three hour lay-over with an almost two-year old! Luckily, the Minneapolis airport is huge and we just played for hours. One of the first things we saw was this huge Moose. I've mentioned several times that his favorite animal right now is a moose, and he was beyond excited to see this guy! (Notice that Krew is wearing moose pajamas too!)
twins on a motorcycle when they are about this same age, which he has obviously seen a lot.
We had a little bit of time to kill once we got to the hotel before Bart was done at his conference, but Krew kept himself entertained, mostly by jumping in this awesome hotel crib!
