Blast to the Past

October 25th Cameron and I took the longest plane ride of our lives to Seattle. It was probably the longest plane rise of 100 something other people's lives as well. I say that because Cameron screamed the entire way. An hour and half of the screaming and squirming that left me in a cold sweat. He was not a happy camper. That's OK I will never see those people again, right? I know that they hope not.

We went to visit my best friend of 15 or so years Tamara and her daughter Marissa. She and Cameron are 5 weeks apart so they share a special bond and Tamara and I are determined to play matchmaker for the two. We will be in-laws yet. Tamara and I are amazingly very good friends. We seem so different but we are so alike. We spent 4 days doing the things we enjoy most: we shopped, we ate, we watches hilarious movies, we gossiped, we laughed, we ate, we shopped, and the we ate some more.
We took the kids to the pumpkin patch and braved the mall a couple times with the both of them.

On that Monday we made the 4 hour trek to Portland were our college friend, Carrie, lives with her hubby and 3 kiddos. It was so good to see Carrie and have the 3 of us together again. Again we did the things we love: we shopped, we ate, we laughed, we cried, we gossiped. See I told you we had a great time. Thanks to Carries sweet hubby, Anthony, who totally watched 5 kids under the age of 5 so that we could go out for a girls dinner and chick flick. It was a total blast to the past and so worth the nightmarish plane ride.

In case you were wondering...the plane ride back was 100% better. I suppose it helps to give the kid a nap RIGHT before the trip. Note to Benedryl does not work.
