|Arizona bound! FINALLY!|
I don't think I ever even mentioned that we did indeed end up getting flights to Arizona to attend my cousins wedding, after our initial flights were cancelled thanks to shady weather!
It was a frazzled flight out to Arizona...Clara was a doll...but we ran into one TSA jerkface who attempted to confiscate ALL OF OUR BABYFOOD. I thought the rule was 4oz and under...but I stand corrected...UNDER 4 oz only. I brought sealed babyfoods in little 4 oz pouches. I made somewhat of a mad crazy scene...like...we need to feed her at least three meals during this insanely long day of travel...and snacks! and during plane assent and descent! and any time she starts to freak or cry I'd like to shove one in her mouth to keep the peace on the plane! I wanted to scream at the lady, "what the hell do you want me to feed my baby if you take all of our food you crazy b****!" But I didn't. Though I probably said it with my eyes.
They ended up taking half of our sealed babyfood pouches as they thought it was too much. OK. So TSA got to decide the quantity we were to feed Clara that day... I was livid. LIVID. And felt so hopeless. At the small airport we were at, there wasn't even a single item at their food stand I could feed Clara....no fresh fruit...no yogurt...nothing but pastries and bagels and coffee. Anyway. The rest of the day was fine...we go to Arizona...we made due with what I packed (apple slices, bananas, teething biscuits, peanut butter sandwiches for Tommy and me that we shared with Clara.)
The TSA security people in Phoenix were much more friendly and understanding on our flight back to New York. They tested our babyfood...but they didn't take it away. I wanted to kiss them! I have to note that Clara slept for 2 hours on one of the plane rides...it was bliss...she was nestled so peacefully in my arms...I just soaked it up. Best flight ever.
And Arizona? It was perfection. Flagstaff....*sigh* is Heaven on Earth. The family was so fun to see. Clara got lots of kisses from her grandparents! Tommy and I drove up to our wedding site...basically our favorite Flagstaff destination. Had some of our fave local fare...doesn't get better than a Mike & Rhonda's breakfast.
I will share some fun wedding tidbits later...with pics!
