Because we were flying on The Boy's 10th birthday, the kids all got to go into the cockpit before our flight. The Boy sat in the pilot seat as they got a pre-flight view of what goes on in the air. All six of us 'earned our wings' that day! The flight crew was awesome, and they even said happy birthday to The Boy in the pre-flight announcements! Kudos to Delta Airways!

Flying is not one of my favorite things. Granted, it definitely gets you farther faster than driving, and odds are that one is more likely to be injured in a car accident than on an airplane...but still, not one of my top ten list of fun things to do. The fact that we flew to Orlando for vacation with four kiddos that have never even been near a plane compounded the lack of fun just a bit. However, once we got on board and took off, the looks on their faces was priceless! All four loved it, even though a couple of them were terrified at first. Everything went great, just a slightly bumpy landing when we were coming home. All in all, well worth flying and arriving in 4 hours as opposed to driving 20 hours!
