We did it! We survived flying with three kids four and under for a total of 11 hours! There was something about it that was a challenge to be won and our family rose to the occasion. Don’t get me wrong. It was exhausting, hard work, but I was proud of this little Rogers clan.
We started our trip at the Four Points by Sheraton San Jose Airport. That’s a mouthful, but it was easily the best Four Points I have ever stayed at. They upgraded us to a suite which meant mom and dad got a room with Ezekiel and the girls slept in the living room on the pull out couch. It also meant we had space for a living room dance party set to some very inauthentic (make that Disney) Hawaiian music. Ezekiel thought it was a crack up and it was the perfect way to kick off our trip. See the video for his sweet and slightly nervous laughter.
We misjudged ourselves on the way to the airport and got there quite a bit tighter than either of us liked. It is no fun trying to rush a two and four year old through an airport, but we managed and ended up sitting next to the sweetest retired couple. We threw activity after activity at the kids and snacks upon snacks until we landed at Kahului Airport. I’ll link below to some of the things that worked well for us. The kids were champs and I love them for it. When your kids are crushing it in public, it totally makes you feel like a superhero or the president or something. I rode that high, for sure.
