We were picked up for our trip bright and early the morning of our Make-A-Wish trip. We were all ready and excited, and to make it even more exciting we were picked up in a Limo to take us to the airport. It was all of our first time except for Jason's. Of course, it was pretty cool and exciting for the kids.
Here we are at the airport, where Mark met us and helped us get checked in. We flew on Southwest Airlines, who gave our family star treatment. We had a Southwest employee escort us to the front of all the lines and did everything for us, she was great.
Another perk was getting on the plane first. The pilot let the kids check out the cabin and even gave Spencer a lesson on how to fly the plane.
Only two of our kids have been on a plane before, but they were babies, so technically this was their real first time flying. Some were a little unsure, but after take-off they all thought it was so awesome.
Our flight was delayed a couple hours because of avoiding storms in the Midwest, but we made it to our hotel in Philadelphia about 9 pm in Eastern Time. We ate at the hotel restaurant and got some rest for our big day the next morning.
