Today was Samuel's first airplane trip alone--to Arizona to visit his grandparents and attend an architecture workshop.
We rented a car to take him to the airport. I signed up for the "whatever is available" rental car option from Thrifty, and this was what they had left on a Saturday in mid-December.
So we immediately put the top down.
We dropped Samuel off at his airport gate, then proceeded directly to Jen's favorite place in the world: Target.
Tonight we went to a holiday party at friends' apartment, where the girls were holding a contest to see which dad could do the best combination of handstand, cartwheel, and splits.
Seriously, was there ever really any doubt?
Santa even showed up...
We miss our Samuel, but he's safe and sound in Scottsdale...probably playing Minecraft on the grandparents' computer at this moment.
