Off to Kansas Part I

This summer we got to go see our sweet friend Jenna get married. She's like a little sis to me and has taught with us for 7 years. She's very special to my girls, as well. She basically adopted them and became their aunt while she lived here. We were trying to figure out how to make it to her wedding, especially for Firstborn and me, when Jenna offered us some travel vouchers. She had written an essay about her little local airline Seaport and won 4 free vouchers from Memphis to Salina, Kansas. She said she had no plans to use them. We took her up on it! The afternoon came for the trip. It was really weird to just have 2 of our 5 kids. We remembered one long car drive up to Malaysia we had with just these two daughters when they were babies.

We quickly discovered Seaport Airlines has its own hangar. A minivan picked us up and took us across the street to the place where it loads. There we were greeted by our pilot, our luggage was weighed (to make sure it wasn't too heavy for the plane), and there was no security whatsoever.

A small plane with two growing girls.
Our pilot loaded our luggage! It was an 8-seater. Just before we arrived, CC asked if I thought there might be a bathroom aboard. "Of course," I said, "Every plane has a bathroom." Not this one! It was tiny! We determined that there is no need to take our kids to Disneyworld, this provided enough thrills in the air to cover us!
