Maddie did…OK…on the plane. I think that Mike and I were so worried that she’d freak out that we crowded her and CAUSED a freak out. But, on the Maddie scale, it was a minor upset. And anyone who was pissed at her whimpers felt badly when they saw her cute little face. She was SO excited when we first got on the plane, though.
She couldn’t even sit still for a photo.
After her freak out, she was antsy for about 25 minutes before she fell asleep, and luckily she stayed asleep through landing.
We’re still here in AZ, we arrive back in LA late Monday night. Until then, we are enjoying our time with family. And we’re LOVING watching Maddie interact with her cousins. Maddie thinks both her cousins (ages 4 and 2) are the coolest things ever. But her four year old cousin Spencer? I’m pretty sure she thinks he hung the moon.
Getting a kiss from Spencer.
Playing in their pajamas.
Looking at him like he’s a God.
The good news is I think he loves her a lot too.
Before we head home we’re going to have the annual Spohr Tennis Tournament (the only time anyone plays tennis all year) and then we’re going to another baseball game and having one more meat-filled dinner. I think I might explode and/or turn into a bovine if I have one more slab of meat. But…it will be totally worth it. Meat is goooooood. Of course, on Wednesday, I am turning Vegetarian (Wednesday, because Tuesday is St. Patrick’s Day, and I have to have Corned Beef. But then I am TOTALLY down with becoming a Veggie. Like, completely committed. But…Easter will present a problem. I DO love me some honey baked ham. CRAP. Let’s just pretend this vegetarian discussion never happened.).`1
Before we turned into Bovines.
So glad you’re having a good time!

What a beautiful family.
Looks like Maddie is having a fabulous time! I don’t think anyone ever gets through a plane ride without at least a small meltdown, it looks like she did great.

Love your blog. Love Maddie. Wondering if there is ever talk of having another baby?
If you go veggie I’m just going to send you scratch and sniff cards that smell like roast beef and ribs.
Cause, I? Am THAT friend.

I love the last photo, she’s looking at you like “Mother, what ARE you doing?”
I expect you’ll get that look a lot when she’s a teenager!

I was concerned about Mike’s “scrubs” outfit on the plane until I realized Maddie’s on Mike’s lap. Ha.
LOVE the playing on the bed pic of Maddie and Spencer!

Arizona… I’m so jealous. Glad you and the fam are having a good time. Fingers crossed that Maddie stays cool for the flight home too.
