Philadelphia Day 1

Friday night of spring break we drove down to LA to catch a redeye to Philadelphia. The kids were so good! Sadie slept all the way to LA, then woke up as we were going through the airport. The big kids didn't sleep until we were on the plane.

We got them little tablets for the trip. They didn't know about them until we were on the way. They really helped keep them busy while we were waiting around.
Andy fell asleep as soon as we got on the plane. He even cuddled up to the stranger sitting next to him. The girls lasted maybe a half hour into the flight. And then slept the rest of the way. Couldn't really ask for a better flight.
When we landed we got our luggage and car and went straight to Auntie Bess and Uncle Matt's house. We were so excited and so were they. Veda couldn't wait to show us around.
Sadie and Veda were instantly inseparable. They loved reading books together and even got into mischief like jumping on the bed and running up and down the halls screaming!
John had these two in his arms pretty much any chance he had.
We hung out with Bess, Matt and the kids until it was nap time. We went and checked into the hotel and all crashed. When we woke up the Gerig's came and swam with us at the hotel! Then we walked down to dinner.
The kids were adorable walking down the street holding hands.
We got to the restaurant and Andy immediately fell asleep. Even before his food got there. The waiter didn't even know what to do. Poor guy!
But the rest of us enjoyed our food, and the company.

Sadie didn't last too long once we got to the hotel. It was great coming in early in the morning so we had the whole day and the kids were so tired that there was no fighting going to bed.
