Leo and I had an amazing five days in Tennessee with my mom and sisters. My dad was on a business trip for most of the time, so it truly was just a girls’ weekend (plus Leo). We had a blast!
Thursday night Leo and I flew out. I was nervous how he would do on the plane and packed a bottle for him to drink at takeoff. However, he crashed out on my shoulder before we even had lift-off. He slept for about half the flight and woke up for the other half – standing and smiling and playing on my lap. He did great and really impressed those sitting around us. We landed in Detroit and met up with my sister, Kelly. Then the three of us flew from there to South Carolina. Once again, Leo fell asleep just before takeoff. This time he slept the whole time. Best traveler award.
Here’s some of the amazing food we cooked up this weekend:
- roasted cauliflower and pasta
- quinoa burgers with guacamole
- sauteed garlicky kale
- soup au pistou
- garlic pita chips
- mom’s chocolate sheet cake
- bok choy, broccoli, and soba noodles in an chili almond butter sauce
Oh man, it was all so stinkin’ good!
Tuesday night Jill took Kel and I back to the airport. Once again, Leo fell asleep before takeoff. He woke up mid-flight because he was hot and was a little fussy, but wasn’t loud and was pretty easily distracted by toys. Kel and I split again at Detroit. Leo fell asleep before takeoff on our final flight home and stayed asleep the whole time. Seriously, could he be any better at flying?!?
Leo and I landed just after 9pm and were definitely excited to see Dave again! Seriously though, I think I need a 5-day-weekend with my mom and sisters every year, if not more!
Sisters and Leo (he looks thrilled to be included):
