A Flight of Firsts

Flying to Santiago and back with our boys went so much more smoothly than we could have anticipated. Granted, Ian and Alec got a bit antsy in their airplane seats and tore apart their complimentary headsets but otherwise they did great! :)

One of the funniest things was hearing their made-up word for airplane. At first we thought we had misunderstood but the more we heard them say it in context, the more convinced we became of what they were saying. Imagine the flight of a bumblebee and the sound "z-z-z-z-z-z-z-z" really fast with each "z" enunciated and that is the "word" they were using! It was too cute.

I included the above picture because a highlight of passing through the Santiago airport for our kids is stopping at Dunkin Donuts (which we don't have in Iquique.) We purchased half a dozen donuts for an exorbitant amount and then watched our children chow down in delight. Halfway through we realized this was Ian and Alec's first donut, ever!

And that, of course, deserved to be documented for posterity. :)
