Plane Ride!!

Believe it or not, this was the kids' first time on an airplane! We've attempted several times, but the kids have gotten sick or something has come up. This was our last chance for a while considering I'm 30 weeks. The kids loved their airplane ride!! The kids and I met up with Shane at the airport and joined him on his over night to St. George. The fun part was that he flew us down and back!

We sat by the back of the wing on the way down. The kids liked watching the flaps and looking down below. Riley fell asleep right after take-off on the way down and slept the whole time. Coming back we sat by the prop. Riley was fascinated with watching it and didn't want to sleep. So coming back was a little tougher fighting him to stay on my lap. But Kaylani loved that she got a snack and drink with her own little tray! She beamed the whole trip! Except when we landed. She wanted to stay in the air forever! I told her that no matter what we have to come down sooner or later. Then she got mad thinking that we were back in Salt Lake! She had a hard time understanding that we had left Salt Lake and were now in St. George, far from home!

She was thrilled when Daddy let her sit up front with all of the buttons!!

In St. George, she couldn't understand why we were driving someone else's car (the rental). She kept asking us if the person knew we had their car. We had to keep reassuring her that it was ok and that we had to pay them money to use it. She also loved the idea of the hotel. It was exciting for us to see how excited she was over every little thing. For Shane, I think a hotel is nothing more than a fancy prison with some freedoms where he gets to leave the next day.

The kids loved the pool!!

We went to a place called the Fiesta Fun Center. The kids had a ball playing on the toys and playing with the arcade area.

This was Riley's favorite game... "BALL, BALL!"

Go Kaylani, Go!!
