Booked!

We're going to Washington next month! We've been talking about going for 5 years- Jon grew up there (as well as Alaska and Oregon) and is always talking about how beautiful it is. I've never been to the northwest and I've been begging him to take me and show me his old stomping grounds. So today, we went ahead and booked our first family vacation! The best parts:
  1. We paid for our airline tickets with points we've accumulated on Jon's business credit cards- so we didn't have to spend a dime!
  2. We still have over half of our points left to use for another trip.
  3. We're staying with Jon's sister- so no lodging costs. And, we're not tied to a hotel room for the night when Cam hits the sack.
  4. I'll be going here...
  5. And here...
  6. And spending time here...
  7. And seeing this...
I'm so excited, but I have to say I'm a little apprehensive about flying with a baby. I'm sure he'll be fine though and we can't wait. Time to put another pin in the map!

Pack layers, and definitely a jacket--it rains a lot, even in the middle of summer!

Have a blast--Seattle is really a fun city.

I've never flown with a baby but from what I've been told it's best to give them a bottle during take off and landing, helps their ears! Good luck and have fun!

I flew with Gavin when he was 3 months old, and he did great. Just feed him on take off and landing if he'll take it--or at least a pacifier. Oh and you can check carseat and stroller for free at the gate.

Why don't you pass on some of those points on to your dear sister so she can go next week!
