flying to portland

Before I get into our whole Portland trip, I would like to mention that it snowed today. It was just a light snow but it just made me realize that winter is coming! I am not really looking forward to winter. Haha.

Anyways, my husband went to a work conference in Portland, Oregon this year so my son and I tagged along. We had lots of fun but it was kind of tiring too.

For our trip, we flew out on a Sunday night. Instead of flying out of our local airport, we decided to fly out of the Boston Airport because tickets were cheaper and we could get a non-stop flight. Since we were flying out of Boston, we had to drive 3.5 hours to get there. We thought about going to church that day since our flight wasn't until late at night but we just decided to skip church and hit the road. On the way to Boston, we had to stop twice to change diapers for the wee one. Thankfully, we didn't really hit any traffic but we did have to go through a toll road. Darn Toll Road. Ha! Anyways, we finally made it to the airport. We parked our car and got all checked in.

We then let Timmy play in the play area.

After a couple hours of playing, it was finally time to take off. Our flight went fairly well. We were all able to sit together. The babe slept some although it was fitful sleep. He would sleep on us for a little bit but then sometimes he would move and start crying. Poor thing. It is so much easier to sleep in your bed than on a plane. Sigh.

Anyways, we finally made it to Portland. Grabbed a Taxi. The Driver drove pretty fast. Checked into our Hotel and then went to sleep.

  1. That's awesome that the airport has a play area. Ok maybe you can answer the question that's been plaguing me for some time now. What did you do about a carseat in the taxi?
