Happy Anniversary

To my wonderful husband:

Thank you for 6 great years! Life with you has been
the best/hardest, most rewarding/challenging,
exciting time of my life.

I love you so much, and can't wait
to spend the rest of my life with you.

Our trip

Well, we had a great time in CA! We saw lots of friends and family, and we spent a day at Disneyland. Here are a few photos:

We survived!

We made it! I cannot believe how well Dylan did. We had an empty seat next to us on our short flight from Syracuse to JFK, which was awesome! The flight was almost full, so we were very lucky. Dylan did great, he barely cried and we were able to keep him entertained with a combination of chocolate 
teddy grahams, beanie babies, a viewfinder 
(remember those things!) and most importantly, 
a book of animal stickers.  I found those stickers at Michael's the day we left, and thank God I picked them up.  Mind you, this was all just for the 1 1/2 hour flight into JFK!! Our flight was late getting in, so we had to rush to our gate, and I even had to change his diaper once we boarded our next plane (thankfully it was just wet).  

Dylan was really wound up from the chaos of rushing to our next 
gate, so he was a little more challenging to get him settled in for 
the flight. As Jason mentioned in his blog, the woman sitting next
to us apparently though Dylan had some sort of incurable disease 
or something.... she was horrified to be sitting next to us. I, of 
course, was extremely offended by this, and it took everything in 
me to not let Dylan "accidentally" bump into her every time she fell asleep. I decided this would not do anything to help improve her view of children, so I tried my best to keep him away from her. He slept for the majority of the flight thanks to the miracle of Dramamine :) He is big enough to take the dose of medication for a 2 yr old, so therefore; big enough for Dramamine. We figured everyone on the flight would be less traumatized, and we had a better chance of making it off the plane alive if we just gave him a little help sleeping. 

Anyways, all this to say..... we made it, we are here and I am so happy to be back in CA. Just being in the airport felt more like home. There were toilet seat covers (which are not found much out on the East coast- yuck!), the toilets flushed automatically and the hand soap smells better. I know, these seem insignificant, but to me, things just felt right. We even stopped by IN-N-Out on the way home.
