It's been a busy few weeks, but we've had so much fun -- I feel like they have really grown these past few weeks out here on the Island, and although I am looking forward to a bit of an "adults only" break before heading home myself next week, it still feels kind of funny to suddenly be childless!
Security went pretty well -- the only thing that didn't make it through was the jam for Grandma. It was over 100 ml, you see, and, as we all know, a jar of blueberry jam in the hands of two 9-year-olds could be life threatening on an airplane, a MAJOR security problem! So, we were left with 260 ml of Island Preserves, as evidenced in the post-take-off photo above.
Thanks to our meticulously-completed paperwork, we got ourselves (minus the jam) through security and waited for pre-flight boarding -- Alex and Simon were first on and last off the plane, along with another 2-sibling set who were also flying from CYYG to YYZ as unaccompanied minors.
Too soon, it was time to give the boys one final hug, and relinquish them to the flight attendant who would see them to their seats and hand them off to the colleague that would watch over them until their arrival and pick up in Toronto.
Just called Daddy to ensure they arrived safely at the other end -- they did.
Now what? ;-P
