Nebraska, here we come!
Yesterday morning, bright and early at 6:30 a.m., Snuggle Bug and I hopped on a plane to fly to Nebraska. We flew back to attend my 14 year old nephew's confirmation (I'm his Godmother) and we're staying for 6 days. Hooray!

For the first time ever, we had to pay for Snuggle Bug to have his own seat. Now that he's two, we can no longer take him on free as a lap child.

I'm actually kind of glad that he had his own seat. I had my own space and he had his, which was nice.

Snuggle Bug had his nose pressed to the window to watch the planes and luggage carts before take-off. He loved take-off and he did just fine with the landings. He slept for part of the flight too. He's such a good little traveler. The only struggles I had was when it came time to make him sit down and put a seat belt on. He protested but I still got my way.

So, this may be a silly picture, but I had to take it. This "rapid charger" contraption fascinated me. I've never seen one before. For $3 you can charge nearly any kind of cell phone for 30 minutes. Pretty clever, don't you think.

I though I had my phone charged before we left for the airport but between text messaging, taking and uploading pictures, and making phone calls, the battery went low quickly.

Unfortunately, I didn't have 30 minutes to wait and charge my phone, but if I did, I would've paid the $3.

Have you ever seen one of these before?

Well, time to go. Snuggle Bug is walking his older cousin to school and he's ready to go!

Hope to see you tomorrow for my Favorite Ingredient's Friday Breakfast Edition!

What a cute photo of him looking out the window. I'm sure he's fascinated by all the stuff going on around the airport.

Have a great visit in Nebraska!

I just saw one of those charger things myself. It was in the airport in Shanghai, China. How funny is that?
