Sorry for my pre travel post with cell phone photos, but in a couple of hours I’m going to start my long trip to Bali with my 3 kids……..where is my husband? He left earlier for a workshop and we decided that it was so much smarter to reach him after so then we could start our vacation together and not have to wait around for him, but now as I’m staring at the bags, the backpacks, the stroller and all the other million things that are lying around the room I’m wondering if it was a smart move after all…..in the morning we are going to drive to Los Angeles, there absolutely was no decent flight out of Phoenix that didn’t need 12 to 20 hours layover in Los Angeles, so might as well get there at my convenience!
I do have a plan, yes to make this trip work I need a really good one, considering that it is 3 against 1! Since it is a 5 to 6 hour drive and the baby is going to sleep most of the time, that means lots of energy once we get at the airport, but that cannot happen! So we are going to stop in Palm Springs and visit some friends, possibly make all the kids get a good workout for as long as it will take! Then drive to LAX, park our car and get to the check-in……with 2 bags, 3 backpacks, 1 carry on and a stroller. Once we get through security let the baby loose and let the older ones run after him (second work out of the day!), get on my flight and watch them all pass out……is that going to work? I sure hope so!
Considering that Cosimo and Emma have been very busy with preparing for Aladdin Jr for the past 2 weeks, they should be pretty exhausted, Luca probably not as much, but lets keep our fingers crossed!
After the first flight we have a few hours in Taipei, but my worst fear is actually that next flight because it is going to be daytime and I doubt that Luca will just want to sit on my lap for 5 hours………I’ll keep you posted on our adventure to get to Bali through our instagram and Facebook!
