...with my buddy Charlie.
We flew out of the Wilmington, Delaware airport. My parents met us there.
The last time my mom was at this airport was to shake the hand of then Senator John F. Kennedy when he flew in during a campaign stop. It's been awhile.
This was the perfect airport for Charlie's first flight. Quiet, no long lines, and friendly faces.
...the paparazzi followed us out to the plane.
...he was SO excited.
...we were there to visit Carron and kids, and were lucky enough that our days overlapped with some of the days world traveler Kelly Purkey was in town. We met her for brunch where I'm pretty sure the behavior of our children convinced her to, well, never have them.
...We had a full schedule of keep those kids busy.
...A trip to the kid's museum.
...some couch jumping.
...lunch at the Choo Choo restaurant.
...Charlie's first play, Goodnight Moon.
...He loved it.
...some piano with Ellie.
...iChatting with Clara and Ellie (Clara's sweater was purchased by Daddy. The shoulder bow vaguely reminds me of one of my prom dresses? Ha).
...I was only slightly disappointed that there were no celebrity sightings this trip. Does the oldest McDonald's count?
...There's never enough time with a good friend who lives too far away.
