Final fun evening of board games
We got a Headbanz game for Christmas and cracked it open last night to see what it was like. It was fun. It made for many moments of frivolity. Though we stayed up too late playing it to get enough sleep before Logan, Alyssa and the kids' flight this morning. But isn't that what being on holidays is all about? Staying up late and eating too much food and having lots of adventures?
Wake up call at... too early
They didn't have a super early flight but we did shoot to be there a couple hours before flight time to give them time to get bags checked, a bite to eat and through security without having to feel harried. We were on the road at sunrise.
Mt Hood was hiding behind the parking garages.
Katie is most certainly a morning person. She kept up a running commentary of plans, events and observations from the time she woke up until they headed for security. I'm sure she is telling Hayden in the above picture that she is going on a plane and will be flying home to her house and will get to see Aunty Kelly, Ari and Tiia.
I bit of a Wendy's breakfast with a muffin for Rowan.
Then he followed the signs to the water fountain.
Chocolate muffins can parch a guy.
Official parting pose
They look exhausted before they even board the plane.
Hope that means that they played hard and had a good time.
We didn't run a brush through Kate's hair so Grampa took the opportunity to comb it before she headed for the gate. It was a role reversal for them.
Breakfast with our boys
We introduced these guys to Beaches at the airport. Har and I still think it's the best breakfast in town. Today we had brioche french toast. YUM!
We sat by the windows looking over the planes and the walkway between the terminals so we could watch for the kids.
We saw Alyssa and Logan with Evie and motioned to ask where the other kids were. They were coming down the moving walkway. Kate was walking so I barely got a photo before she was gone by and Logan took off to meet her on the end.
Alyssa waited for Rowan who was leisurely riding it. She turned and started walking so he hustled and got moving too. I can't imagine all the fun they have flying with those 3 kids. At least this time she's not doing it solo!
The tail of their jet. Aloha! enjoy your flight!
Thanks for coming!!!
