We Fly to Cancun

This trip has started a bit rocky so I’m glad we only planned a few days. However, some friends I had hoped to see won’t be able to, one is ill and the other is having surgery.  On that note, I am wishing we were staying a day or two longer.

Gpa did well going through the lines at the airport and he enjoyed sitting at the gate. But he got upset when they tried to transfer him to the on plane wheel chair.  He grabbed on to the arms of his chair and they couldn’t pick him up.  So I had to get where he could see me and tell him to let go.  He mouthed, ‘help, me.’  I told him it was OK.

Once we were seated, he told me he was ready to go and even tried to stand up.  I’m so glad I had him in the middle seat.  I asked him if he’d like a cup of coffee, that worked for a bit.   I think this is the first time I’ve ever seen him not finish his coffee!

Then I pulled out the cookies, flash cards, coloring books.  They all worked for a bit.

We flew Virgin Air and they have great little screens so I poked around to see what there was to watch.  In the free section they had videos on places they fly. I picked Dallas/Ft Worth first because I thought he’d be interested in seeing familiar sights.  Not so much.

However, when I picked ‘We Fly to Cancun’, a lady was talking about something so I paused it when she was smiling.  Gpa spent quite a bit of time blowing her kisses and waving to her.

I was able to get a bit of a nap and was awoken to the flight attendant (is that what they are called now, I can’t keep up with all the PC verbiage)  He had called her over. I let her know that he was wanting to get out of  here.

He must of pushed some buttons as the lady from Cancun was no longer on the screen.  So I got her back and was able to finish my nap.

He’s still wanting to go home so I hope we have fun at Disneyland.
