It felt like I just laid my head down and the alarm was already going off. We had to leave by to catch our flight out. I was all repacked and ready to go but it was hard dragging myself up and out. Mel’s neighbor took us to the airport and RJ showed up shortly thereafter. We realized that as we were sitting there, the SD card for my camera was missing. Mel was positive she gave it to me and I was positive she did not. We both started freaking out a little and saying “I swear on my Mom that I gave it to you” and finally we just figured I have to buy a new one when we get to KC otherwise can you imagine, ME not able to take any photos all weekend!?!?!
Since Mel was the first to board out of all of us, she was gonna save seats and probably sit in the back since we figured we might be a wee bit loud.
When they came around for drinks - we decided to have our first drink together in the air. Melanie did the Findlandia vodka, RJ a rum and coke, and I got a bloody mary. When we ordered the drinks, the flight attendant looked at us as though we’d gone mad! HA HA HA. She was a lot of fun and even allowed us to photograph the face she made when Mel asked about vodka.
We had our first drink and sat and talked for quite a while, much to the displeasure of the other nearby passengers. We were not being that loud, well except for RJ who had his IPod headphones on when I tapped him on the shoulder and he yelled REALLY loudly, "WHAT?" HA HA HA. Several people about 4 rows up looked back for that one! LOL.
After our morning beverage, Mel and I blogged a little and then it was nappy poo time - we were going to be in KC soon and had a busy weekend ahead of us!! I felt like I only fell asleep for a couple minutes but it was probably longer.
Hard to believe but we have finally arrived and it's off to see James, the Wizard of Oz and hopefully Toto...Yeah, yeah, I know - wrong state and it wouldn't be the Toto I'd really love to see! LOL.
We get off the plane and are wandering around the airport trying to figure out if we can find someplace to buy a SD card for my camera and are talking to an airport employee when all of a sudden Mel disappears. Apparently James was headed in our direction and spotted Mel and grabbed her.
We head out to the parking lot and well, James, cannot locate the rental car anywhere. We kept wandering around as James continues to swear the car was by Tower 3 which is the Delta terminal. I finally asked why he would've parked at that terminal versus Tower 1 which is for Southwest? It's at that point that James realizes he parked by Tower 3 when he picked Will (w_clemmons) earlier in the morning! LOL. We quickly head out to Wal-Mart and pick up a few necessities and it was back to the airport to wait for Tim who has no clue, he gets an entire welcoming party!
We get back just in time for Tim's plane to land and we stood outside the security checkpoints to see if we could get a glimpse of him walking out.
