Hot, Hot, Hot

Ok, so in a little more than a day we will be boarding a plane with two little ones and flying to the wonderfully hotter then hell state of Arizona. Why Arizona at the end of May you ask? Well, Daddy has some work to take care of and while he is working the kids and I will get to spend some time with our friends that live down there. We haven't visited them since last year at this time so I am excited to see them and their three girls. Last year Kyler had a blast playing (and flirting!) with their girls.
So this is where you guys come in, I am needing some advice. How in the world am I going to travel with two little ones. Yes Daddy will be there. And yes Daddy is a wonderful help, but... I am still totally freaked out! Kyler has flown several times and he did pretty good. I have packed up some brand new toys for Kyler, a brand new movie to watch, and some yummy snacks for him. Does anyone have any other suggestions for keeping a 2 year old entertained on a rather long plane ride?

Matty was so enthralled just to BE on the plane when he was two...seriously he looked out the window almost the whole time! Of course, we had all the things you have packed too. It's always good to have a few tricks up your a shiny new toy!

Lots of luck!! let us know how it goes!

Suckers!!!! Or get some bubbleyum for you to chew and let Kyler pop the bubbbles :) I'm sure I can think of more if you need them...we've only flown a "few" times!

Lindsay took my answer!! Dum-Dum suckers were a life saver!!! They helped with Cade's ears, and were a fun treat. Also, on the trip to Japan, I let Cade walk around as much as he wanted, if the other passengers didn't like it, I told them it was this or screaming. Also, see if a flight attendant will let him go to the cock-pit and get his "wings." Good Luck!!!
